Henry Cavill explains how his mustache was digitally removed for ‘Justice League’

By now you’ve heard the story about Henry Cavill having to shoot part of Justice League with the mustache he grew for Mission Impossible 6. Fox 5’s entertainment reporter, Kevin McCarthy caught up with Cavill this weekend and asked exactly how they removed his mustache for the movie.

“There’s nothing to cover it up,” Cavill explained. “What we do is try to pull it back from the top of the lip as much as possible. They wax it up and then I have dots all over my face”. Cavill then explained that those dots were used for the CGI work that was needed in post-production. You can check out his full answer below around the 4:50 mark.

Justice League hits theaters on November 17th. Tickets are available now.
