RIP Henry Cavill's Mustache, 2017—2018

A moment of silence, please. The world has lost a titan today: the most contentious piece of facial hair in moviemaking history. The mustache that caused Justice League to turn Henry Cavill’s face into a CG-shaved, one-way ticket to the uncanniest of valleys, is no more.

Cavill marked the shaving of his mustache—known for its supporting role in the upcoming Mission: Impossible—Fallout, as well as its computer-enhanced removal from Justice League’s extensive reshoots—with a touching tribute video shared to his Instagram.


Rest in peace, noble mustache. We will forever remember what you might have brought to the team up of DC’s finest heroes.
