The 2017 version of Justice League was directed by Joss Wheadon after Zack Snyder had to remove himself from the project due to a personal tragedy. As many fans know, the 2017 version of the film was met with a lot of criticism for a variety of reasons.
One of the biggest blemishes on the film was the subpar CGI – particularly for Superman. During the filming of Justice League, Henry Cavill was also shooting for Mission Impossible: Fallout. The issue was that Cavill had a mustache and Paramount didn’t allow him to shave it off for Justice League.
Due to this, the effects department had to remove the mustache via CGI and it did not look good at all. Thankfully, Zack Snyder didn’t include the CGI face of Cavill in his version of Justice League and it turned out to be a film that far surpassed anyone’s expectations.
Now it seems the popular YouTube channel Corridor Crew used cutting-edge VFX technology to restore Superman’s mustache in a hilarious video. The team used a variety of methods in order to digitally restore the mustache, such as deepfakes, compositing, and CGI. After a lot of hard work, the team finally managed to produce a realistic-looking mustache for Henry Cavill.
It is unlikely fans will get to see Cavill act as Superman again unless Snyder is allowed to direct more Justice League films in the future. We will have to see whether that happens or not.
