Henry Cavill Addresses Controversy Surrounding 'Justice League' Moustache CGI


Henry Cavill

'Justice League' may not have been the biggest success for Warner Bros., despite bringing together some of DC's biggest characters ever for the first time on the big screen, but the film still makes up a huge part of the unofficially-titled DC Extended Universe. One of the biggest criticisms of the movie however did not come from a performance or a particular scene, but because of the CGI work done on Henry Cavill as Superman, who had to have his real-life moustache removed during reshoots.

Though not a hugely serious problem, it was one that took up a lot of media coverage, with Cavill himself addressing the situation and poking fun at the CGI on a number of occasions. Now though, in a new interview, he's opened up a little more about the work done to his face after reshoots and the "real problem" of sporting the facial hair.

Henry Cavill

Following his resurrection in the recent 'Justice League' movie, the DC Extended Universe will likely be seeing a lot more of the Man of Steel in the coming years, with Henry Cavill of course continuing to tackle the role of Clark Kent, aka Superman. The world of DC Films is only set to expand however, with more superheroes from the pages of DC comic books entering the fray.

One of those is the alter-ego of teenager Billy Batson. Asher Angel will be stepping into the role of Billy on the big screen, whilst Zachary Levi will be taking on his superhero persona, Shazam.

Henry Cavill Pays Tribute To Moustache As He Finally Shaves


Henry Cavill

Everyone likes celebrities who can enjoy a joke at their own expense, and so it is with Superman actor Henry Cavill, who has acknowledged the months of trolling concerning his moustache with an ‘in memoriam’ video dedicated to his facial hair after he shaved it off.

The 34 year old star’s moustache became the stuff of viral legend last summer when it was the subject of some of the worst CGI ever seen in film history. Cavill had been starring in Justice League as Superman in mid-2017, a role that he had held down for five years in the DC cinematic universe.

Nothing weird about that, but he was also working on Mission: Impossible 6 at around the same time of shooting, and that role required him to have facial hair. When Warner Bros unexpectedly scheduled re-shoots for Justice League, he had no choice but to shoot his parts with his moustache and ask the special effects team to remove it post-production.

Henry Cavill Says We See The "True Superman" In Zack Snyder's 'Justice League'


Henry Cavill

'Justice League' may not have been the biggest box office hit or smash with the critics, but the film is still something that makes up a huge chunk of canon within the DC Extended Universe. Behind-the-scenes, director Zack Snyder had to step down from his role halfway through the filmmaking process, paving the way for Joss Whedon to step in and eventually leading to fans petitioning for the release of a full Snyder-cut of the movie.

Though that doesn't look to be something that will now happen, there are still glimpses of the cast and crew working on the film from when Snyder was in charge, as part of the exclusive features on the home release of the Warner Bros. production.

Henry Cavill Explains How The 'Justice League' Superheroes Are Relatable


Henry Cavill

There's now under a week to go until the release of 'Justice League'; the latest entry into the DC Extended Universe and a film that will hopefully continue riding off of the success of 'Wonder Woman'. Whilst 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice', 'Suicide Squad' and 'Man of Steel' didn't see the best critical reviews, 'Wonder Woman' was an immediate success with both reviewers and the wider general public. 'Justice League' will hope to follow the latter's trend.

Warner Bros., along with director Zack Snyder and co-writer Joss Whedon have brought the heroes of the Justice League together for the first time in live-action, with Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg stepping in to join Batman, Wonder Woman and Superman. Together, they'll take on the threat of Steppenwolf and his army of Parademons, who have invaded planet Earth to try and get their hands on a trio of Mother Boxes, which would grant them ultimate power.

Henry Cavill Promises "Gallows Humour" In 'Justice League'


Henry Cavill

When it comes to the DC Extended Universe, it's fair to say the reaction to the majority of its movies so far has been completely split. 'Wonder Woman' broke the mould, bringing in amazing reviews from both critics and the wider general viewing public, but for the flicks that came before it such as 'Suicide Squad' and 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice', there was a lot of venom and raised eyebrows.

This month, the latest addition to the DCEU comes in the form of 'Justice League', with Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman and Ben Affleck's Batman teaming up with Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and the returning Superman (Henry Cavill). Forced to defend Earth once more, they'll go up against their most formidable threat in Steppenwolf and his army of Parademons who are all in search of a trio of Mother Boxes scattered across the planet. With them, Steppenwolf would claim ultimate power, bringing death and destruction to millions.

The planet is in turmoil. Superman is apparently dead and crime rates have surged around the world as a result. But there's more than just petty theft and random assaults out there; mankind are under threat from an alien general named Steppenwolf who, with his terrible army of Parademons, are causing devastation as they search far and wide for three mysterious Mother Boxes hidden on Earth. The people need help, and so Bruce Wayne brings back Gotham's hero - Batman - and enlists the assistance of Wonder Woman to form a new legion of heroes. They, along with Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash, must protect the world from total destruction at the hands of Steppenwolf and, ultimately, his boss Darkseid. They're all very different heroes, with very different ideas about fighting villains, but there's one thing they all have in common - a desire for justice.

Henry Cavill Jokes About Moustache 'Fiasco'


Henry Cavill

Henry Cavill responded to fans’ grumbling about his facial hair in a facetious and amusing manner, after recent reports commented upon extensive Justice League re-shoots and his moustache.

Variety reported on Monday (July 24th) that Warner Bros. and DC were embarking on a series of re-shoots for Justice League, in the wake of the success of Wonder Woman, ahead of its theatrical release later this year.

However, this presents a problem in character continuity, as Cavill needed to grow a moustache for his role in Paramount’s Mission: Impossible 6, which was supposed to finish shooting before he needed to return to Warner Bros. to play Superman in Justice League. However, the over-running of one and the re-shooting of the other have required him to flit between projects, and Paramount won’t allow him to shave while M:I6 is in production.
