The mustache of memes
As we know that you read The Output frequently –ahem, ahem– We take it for granted that you know the story by heart, but just in case it catches you new and you don’t know what we’re talking about, we’ll quickly summarize what a mustache has to do with The Justice League.
It turns out that in the first version of the film, when Snyder disassociated himself from the project, Joss Whedon (in charge of finalizing it) recorded several additional scenes to edit the tape. In some of them he had to turn to Henry Cavill, who gives life to Superman, With the problem that the actor was already filming another movie in which he wore a mustache – something that does not happen in the superhero movie, of course.
They could have chosen to shave him off and wait for him to grow up again to continue working on the other film, but of course the world of cinema is too expensive to waste time and Cavill arrived on the set of Whedon with a clause that he strictly prohibited touching his mustache. That is why those responsible for The Justice League they had to improvise and with special effects, try to erase the mustache from the actor’s face.
The result was not exactly the best -the face looked very strange-, the spectators realized … and the rest of the story is already meat of memes (many memes) like the one you have on these lines. The anecdote is actually known as the “MustacheGate”.
What would the Superman with a mustache have been like?
Although it is not the first time that montages of this type have been made, this type of retouching does not stop attracting attention, especially considering that almost four years have passed since the premiere of the film in theaters. Even so, it seems that the new version of Snyder that we have enjoyed this 2021 has been enough to remove the anecdote again, so much so that the people of the Sam and Nico channel in Youtube You didn’t want to miss out on the chance to have a little fun with the famous MustacheGate.
In the video, which has already accumulated more than 1 million views, Henry Cavill can be seen playing Superman in scenes from the 2017 version of the film with his mustache “intact.” According to its creators, they have restored the mustache to its moment of glory and have even put a hashtag #releasethemustachecut. Beyond the joke, we must admit that the visual effects work done is quite good:
Having seen what you’ve seen, would you have preferred to see Superman with a mustache or neither of the two options is still unconvinced?
