Superman fans will no doubt recall how Cavill had grown a moustache for Mission: Impossible 6, and was prohibited from shaving it off for subsequent Justice League reshoots.
Driven to desperation, digital effects artists tried to digitally chop Cavill’s moustache, with unconvincing and unintentionally hilarious results.
The CGI was obvious to audiences, who were baffled and then amused by the smudgy blur hovering over Cavill’s lips. And the blip has gotten fans sniggering all over again, after Reynolds referenced it in an Instagram post.

In a typically cheeky ad for his drinks company, Aviation Gin, Reynolds could be seen sporting a moustache while pondering the question, ‘does drinking Aviation Gin make you a superhero?’
As a rousing superhero score plays in the background, Reynolds could then be seen lifting a mug to his lips, a mischievous twinkle in his eye. Suddenly, the moustache is gone, revealing a glitchy, amateurish smudge of video editing.
