Henry's moustache strikes again!
It's been the talk of the internet, since he revealed his new look for Mission: Impossible 6 as filming began in April. But according to Variety his facial hair is now getting in the way, as he shoots M:I6 and additional scenes for Justice League in London:
"Cavill’s issues are even more thorny. 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."
As soon as the story hit the web (you can read the rest at Variety), it became one of the most popular topics of conversation.. even getting its own Twitter Moment.

That Vulture post is a must read. Whether the report is true or not remains to be seen, but with less than four months to go until the Justice League release and Henry still sporting a moustache.. we say bring it!
Few men can rock a full Selleck, but by Jor-El, Henry Cavill is one of them. https://t.co/I8e1JkvbNt— Dr Adam Rutherford (@AdamRutherford) July 24, 2017
