Cavill grew an impressive moustache for his role in Mission: Impossible 6 but because of Zack Snyder’s departure from Justice League and Joss Whedon picking up the reins, he needed to return for reshoots.
Paramount, however, wouldn’t let him shave it off leaving the studio with no option other than to CGI it out. Unfortunately making it look like he’s sucking a gobstopper on one side of his face.
FX studio LDN even offered to CGI a moustache back on for M:I6 but no dice. Talking on an AMA Reddit they were clearly happy with the results.
While the “Justice League” movie isn’t expected to be released on Blu-ray or digitally until February 2018, fans in Korea only have to wait a few more days, with the film set to be available for digital download on December 19.

“Paramount should’ve shaved him and stuck a fake one on for MI6. [It was] ridiculously petty of them.
“We did tests on already shot footage of Superman to add a beard as well to show the ‘MI6’ team at Paramount it was loads easier, and Warner Bros. offered to pay for all the beard adding shots in MI6.
“They said no.”
