We mustache you a question… sorry, sorry, can’t help it, the pun is just there for the taking… and, the question being: “Have you been across the internet chatter of Henry Cavill‘s mustache causing chaos?”
To backtrack, Cavill is the latest to portray The Man of Steel, as in Superman. And, he’s already completed filming for the Justice League, hitting theaters this coming November, where he reprises his suped-up role. He’s currently filming M:I 6 – Mission Impossible.
On Tuesday of this week (July 25) the rumor mill started churning with Cavill being called on for some Justice League reshoots, and if memory serves us correctly… Superman does NOT don a lip caterpillar.
But, his character in M:I 6 does, with this Tweet from M:I 6 writer/director Christopher McQuarrie explaining a “stunt” mustache would not work at all.
The continuity concern online caught Cavill’s attention and it gave us a giggle that he did indeed address Mustachegate (yes, we just came up with that.)
If it was on your radar, he has provided a rather roundabout, yet humorous, answer via Instagram:
Dear followers, it is time to finally set the record straight in this moustache fiasco. Pictured above, is not a set on MI6 but is in fact the latest in a series of weapons being designed by Warner Bros and Paramount Studios to combat the entity known as “Henry Cavill’s Moustache”. There has been no discussion over whether to shave or not to shave for the JL reshoots, simply a relentless campaign to put an end to the seemingly inexorable conquest of this despotic ‘stache. It is not a question of IF I should shave – it is a question of how can we possibly be victorious against such a beast without bringing our own doom raining down upon us. #MI6 #JusticeLeague #HenryCavillsMoustache #HopeIsAllWeHaveLeft #MoustacheImpossible
And, if it wasn’t, it is now, with cheeky Tweets like the below:
Henry Cavill having his moustache digitally removed for Justice League reshoots means I can't get images like this out of my head. pic.twitter.com/uCx3t4Y86h

And, here is a more tangible, concrete, or shall we say steel-clad solution:

We could stop with the above, but this Twitter request was there for the sharing:
Whatever happens to 'Justice League', please do not digitally remove Henry Cavill's glorious chest hair. pic.twitter.com/T6Ci7m8fRd

We’ll leave it to you, is it or isn’t a thing? At least… a little laugh?!
