It’s back and in all its glory.

A few years ago, Henry Cavill’s stashe was all the rage when it became caught in the middle between the production of Mission: Impossible - Fallout and Justice League reshoots. The actor was shooting both films at once, and it was decided that he would keep the facial hair for the sake of Mission: Impossible. This resulted in the Justice League CGI artists needing to do a bit of movie magic on their end for Superman.

Fans appreciated the nod and one Twitter user even theorized Henry Cavill went for the look again for the sole purpose of poking fun at it:

It’s probably just a product of quarantine, right? A lot of celebrities are messing around with their hair right now, including Henry Cavill’s The Man from U.N.C.L.E. co-star Armie Hammer, who's rocking bonkers handlebars.

According to Zack Snyder, who had to leave the Justice League production and put his vision behind him when his daughter passed away, his new project will be an “entirely new thing” from the 2017 release Joss Whedon directed. HBO Max is spending an estimated $20 to $30 million on additional photography and effects. It will reportedly be either a four-hour director’s cut or split into six chapters on the streaming service. As Henry Cavill quipped on the livestream, he would “love” to watch a version of the film “without the mustache.”

Admire it while it lasts then! Henry Cavill’s clean-shaven Superman is going to make a comeback. Stay tuned here on CinemaBlend for more updates on the future of the DCEU and movie news in general.
