Henry Cavill's weird CGI face is the talk of Twitter and we can see why
This is too funny.
If you’ve been on Twitter over the last number of days, you may have seen some weird pictures of Henry Cavill doing the rounds.
Yes, the Justice League star has become somewhat of an online trend this week after viewers pointed out some very weird stills of him from the movie.
Cavill, who plays Superman, was also working on Mission: Impossible 6 at the time and he was told that he couldn’t shave his moustache for his role.
Which meant he was playing two different roles at the same time, where one needed facial hair and the other didn’t – queue pictures of very bad CGI.

Yes, makers of Justice League went to the time and effort to CGI out Cavill’s moustache, however, it didn’t go unnoticed by viewers.
They were quick to share snaps from the film online, pointing out scenes where Cavill’s facial hair had clearly been edited out.
You can't tell but the digital effects artists managed to remove Henry Cavill's moustache for those close up scenes so he can talk like a human being and it won't look weird at all. pic.twitter.com/8GET2vx5RA

I don't understand the complaints. The cgi removal of Henry Cavill's mustache is barely noticeable. pic.twitter.com/nKoUrqj6y8

And not only that, but the makers of the superhero movie reportedly spent an eye-watering $25 million to do so.
We’d say that was $25 million well spent, but…
