The man that plays Superman, Henry Cavil, has recently been spotted sporting a super mustache. If you’re a fan of the caped man in the sky, you already know about Henry Cavill. He has been playing the character for well over 4 years now, starting with his role in the “Man of Steel” film. Henry Cavill was seemingly perfect for playing the role of Superman, but his recent look has us questioning whether he’s still going to be playing that role. According to Cavill, he has to go through a plethora of problems when it comes to his facial hair, because they had to go back and re-shoot a few of the scenes that were associated with the new “Justice League” film. The directors Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon were making changes to the script, and that required some of the actors to come back in and re-shoot their roles. Actors from all corners of the Hollywood region are being called upon to help out with the process, mainly because the superhero film has been placed under Whedon’s creative control – so it’s obvious that are some changes they want to be made. When it comes to Henry Cavill, he has to take time off from the project that he is working on right now; this is a film derived as a sequel to the “Mission: Impossible” series. The role that he plays means he needs to sport a very thick mustache, which is a very different look from the typical clean-shaved face we see when he is Superman.
The Man of Steel isn’t one to sport a mustache, and he never has been! All I can think of is Superman sporting an incredibly thick lumberjack beard, at this point in time. Paramount is the studio behind this new rendition of Mission: Impossible, and they are refusing to let Cavill shave his mustache while re-shooting scenes for the Justice League film. Superman does not have a mustache. How did they end up filming everything? I know Hollywood has a lot of magic to be worked, but how exactly could you remove a mustache from the face of a man that’s going to be a large part of your movie? Well, if you guessed that they were going to go the digital route, you were right.
Digital content is something that we’ve become accustomed to, and it’s allowed movies to be made with essentially a green room surrounding the actors. Some would say that it’s killing the creativity of movies, but I can only imagine how hard it would be to act out a scene with absolutely no setting or backdrop to work with. In any case, hopefully they are able to maintain the look that Superman is known for without too much hassle – having him sport a mustache simply wouldn’t be right.
