To this, the actor replied with how the mustache was strong enough to withstand the force of the hook and keep him alive. They then continued to talk about how the returning character would be Walker but without the mustache.

Henry Cavill’s mustache became an issue while filming Justice League. Due to his contract with Paramount, the actor was not allowed to remove it under any circumstance. Joss Whedon had been working on the reshoots of the film extensively. Unfortunately, for Cavill, these took place side by side with his shoot of Mission: Impossible – Fallout. The decision was made to edit this stache out. It was removed purely by using CGI and to Whedon’s dismay, that was the smallest of his problems because of the other backlash the movie got.
