DC Extended Universe fans are currently having a field day with the news that Henry Cavill, who plays the cinematic universe's Clark Kent/Superman, is not allowed to shave his Mission Impossible 6 mustache for Justice League reshoots.
But according to Christopher McQuarrie, who is helming MI6, there's a pretty good reason for the whole ordeal.
McQuarrie recently took to Twitter to address the mustache controversy. You can check out the tweet below.
In exactly one year you’ll understand: The only way to keep a fake ‘stache on Henry Cavill would be a liberal dose of staples. #MI6 07.27.18— ChristopherMcQuarrie (@chrismcquarrie) July 25, 2017
It seems like McQuarrie is insinuating that keeping a fake mustache on Cavill - if he were to shave the real one off for Justice League reshoots - would not be an easy task, possibly given the actor's action-heavy role in MI6.
So, there you have it. Even with McQuarrie's clarification, the whole ordeal remains pretty amusing, especially considering the lengths Warner Bros. will have to go to to digitally remove Cavill's mustache from Justice League footage. It's safe to say quite a few fans still want to see what Cavill's mustachioed Superman would look like though.
In Justice League, fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League is directed by Zack Snyder, from a screenplay by Chris Terrio, and features an ensemble cast that includes Ben Affleck (Batman), Henry Cavill (Superman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Ezra Miller (The Flash), Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Ray Fisher (Cyborg), Ciarán Hinds (Steppenwolf), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Jeremy Irons (Alfred Pennyworth), J.K. Simmons (Commissioner Gordon), Amber Heard (Mera), Kiersey Clemons (Iris West) and Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor).
Wonder Woman is in theaters now, and will be followed by Justice League on November 17, 2017; Aquaman on July 27, 2018; Shazam on April 5, 2019; Justice League 2 on June 14, 2019; Cyborg on April 3, 2020; and Green Lantern Corps on July 24, 2020. Flashpoint, Batgirl, The Batman, Dark Universe and Man of Steel 2 are currently without a release dates.
