Henry Cavill's Mustache Was Digitally Removed In "Justice League" And It's Pretty Bad

Is that Superman or human Shrek?

This is Henry Cavill. Not only is he a certified hottie biscotti with a naughty little body, he also plays Superman in the new Justice League film.

If you're like me and have been stalking Henry Cavill's Instagram account every evening after drinking a bottle of wine, then you know he's sporting a pretty badass mustache that he grew for Mission: Impossible 6, which comes out in 2018.

Well unfortunately for Cavill, the shooting schedules for Justice League and Mission: Impossible 6 overlapped, and Paramount told Cavill he couldn't shave his mustache. Meaning, Warner Brothers had to spend "approximately $25 million" digitally removing Cavill's mustache from the film.

I don't know about you guys, but for the next DC movie I'm praying for a Superman soul patch.
