The stars of the movie Justice League have been called back to the studio for some reshoots. That’s not out of the ordinary; reshoots happen in a lot of movies to get a scene just right after the editing process. But Henry Cavill, who plays Superman, appears to be in a bit of a situation.
“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.
Those reshoots must be very important to the movie. On hearing the news, many fans responded with a desire to see Superman with a mustache. Artist Jonas Von Kruger saw this coming, as he posted this three weeks ago.

The question remains: could Superman grow a mustache? He’s not exactly human, you know. Facial hair may be out of the question since his invulnerable hair would resist trimming by a mere razor.
