The magic of Hollywood will turn its malicious eye towards that magnificent Mission: Impossible 6 mustache of Henry Cavill‘s and remove it digitally from the Justice League rehoots that Joss Whedon is currently working on. This was scheduled to be a none lip hair issue as Cavill had already shot all his Justice League scenes and moved on to Mission: Impossible 6, but the rehoots now have Cavill bouncing between productions to get the new shots in. Check out the details and pictures below.

First off we’ve got to give a shout out to Cameron Stewart and his photoshop magic from this tweet below:

Here’s what Variety had to say:

Justice League’s Man of Steel had expected to be able to finish shooting the sixth Mission: Impossible film before needing to don Superman’s spandex again. That has not been the case, however, as the new scenes that are being shot have required him to jump back and forth from each production. Because of this, a mustache he grew for his character in the Mission: Impossible sequel will have to be digitally removed in post-production. Paramount, which is distributing the Mission: Impossible sequel, would not allow Cavill to shave the facial hair while production was taking place.

Here’s an Instagram post of the hairy caterpillar currently living on Cavill’s upper lip.

Now that is a manly soup strainer. If you wondered why those Justice League reshoots were topping the $25 million mark, there’s your answer. Warner Bros. is going to have to pay to digitally remove that lip rug on all of the scenes that Henry Cavill is in.

RIP Snot Mop…

And now this…

Ohh what could have been.
