Henry Cavill reveals that his pesky Mission: Impossible ‘stache is actually evil

Earlier this week, we reported that a mustache Henry Cavill grew for his role in the next Mission: Impossible movie was causing headaches for Warner Bros., since the studio needed Cavill for some Justice League reshoots and would have to use CG magic to digitally remove the ‘stache. Unfortunately, Warner Bros. is apparently run by jerks, so even though hilarious photos of Cavill wearing his Superman suit with a mustache must exist, the studio hasn’t released any. According to Cavill, though, there may be another reason that Warner Bros. won’t release these very funny pictures: The mustache is evil.

In an Instagram post (via Variety), Cavill explained that nobody is actively trying to shave the mustache, because any attempt to attack it would risk killing everyone involved. “It is not a question of IF I should shave,” Cavill says, “It is a question of how can we possibly be victorious against such a beast without bringing or own doom raining raining down upon us.” He also added a “MustacheImpossible” hashtag, which is pretty funny.


Variety seems to believe that Cavill is joking around and that the mustache isn’t actually evil, but all of that is irrelevant anyway. All we want is to see a picture of Superman with a mustache.
