"It is not a question of *if* I should shave…” - Henry Cavill responds to those Justice League ‘tache reshoots

TODO alt text

Who knew facial hair could be such a big talking point? Superman’s face fuzz has to be edited out of Justice League reshoots but what does Henry Cavill think of the ‘tache? He’s responded on social media with, uhh, a request to destroy the hideous creature known as Henry Cavill’s moustache.

Supes took to Instagram to ‘reveal’ Warner Bros. and Paramount have been building a weapon to combat his furry upper lip. The hashtag #MoustacheImpossible says it all, though. There’s no way that moustache is going anywhere in a hurry.

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

“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,” Cavill jokes. Although the age-old question of how Superman shaves is certainly relevant here. (Answer? Very carefully). If Justice League 2 needs a villain then sentient facial hair plaguing the heroes would be my first port of call.

Does Superman sporting a bit more than stubble spoil his look? You be the judge. Beware: Spoilers for Justice League 2: The Moustachening follow.

Hi All, Welcome to the red glow of set....the secrets of which I cannot reveal. This is Adrian Mcgaw my stunt double on MI6. Just wanted to introduce you all. Yes, he looks like Ricky Gervais No, he's not a slightly miniaturised human male, that's just camera perspective. And yes, he thinks that by wearing an MI5 t shirt that he'll make more friends on set. All joking aside though, he's a top bloke, who just like Wade and all of his "Eastwood Action Inc" stunts team, puts his all into his work. Not scared of a pint either which is always good in my book! @AdrianMcgaw @WadeEastwood #Eastwoodaction #stunties #MI6
