'Justice League' spending $25 million, 2 months on reshoots. Henry Cavill isn't allowed to shave his Mission Impossible 6 mustache, so they're CGI-ing it off in post-production.



More "Justice League" news. Variety is reporting that the reshoots, which wanted to accommodate the success of "Wonder Woman," have cost WB upwards of $25M, with Joss Whedon, who took over Zack Snyder's leave of absence, overseeing that as well. 

"The studio is spending approximately $25 million on extensive reshoots that have dragged on for roughly two months in London and Los Angeles, according to multiple insiders. Like “The Avengers,” “Justice League” centers on a group of superheroes who band together to save the world. The ensemble nature of the comic book movie, and the fact that its cast includes several of the most in-demand actors working in Hollywood today, is creating scheduling headaches that has prolonged the shooting."

Also, Henry Cavill's mustache seems to be an issue:

"Cavill’s issues are even more thorny. “Justice League’s” Man of Steel had expected to be able to finish shooting the sixth “Mission: Impossible” film before needing to don Superman’s spandex again. That has not been the case, however, as the new scenes that are being shot have required him to jump back and forth from each production. Because of this, a mustache he grew for his character in the “Mission: Impossible” sequel will have to be digitally removed in post-production. Paramount, which is distributing the “Mission: Impossible” sequel, would not allow Cavill to shave the facial hair while production was taking place."

The very idea of them digitally removing Henry Cavill's mustache during post-production is funny. I'm imagining him in his Superman outfit with the moustache. Maybe they should leave it.
