A Justice League fan decided to give Henry Cavill the iconic Superman hair curl.
The image in question doesn’t alter actor Henry Cavill’s appearance by much, save for putting a little bit of hair on his forehead; a look that the Superman has had since his inception. You can see the image below:
Since Superman was first introduced into what would become the DC Extended Universe, the character has been met with constant criticism. Man of Steel was a film that divided critics with many citing it’s excessive violence, dark tone and a total lack of anything that we know the iconic character for. Perhaps one of the more trivial things was lack of the curl that Superman has been known to have. It seems though, that one fan, was not having it.
The last time we saw Superman was in the 2017 film Justice League. Sadly, the film was not what many people were hoping for. While most seemed to agree that the film was an improvement over Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the film failed to click with audiences the way Warner Brothers was undoubtedly hoping for. The film currently sits at a 40% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes and only managed to clear $657M at the worldwide box office on what was reportedly a $300M budget.
The film is arguable better known for it’s troubled production then its final result. This including the exit of director Zack Snyder, Warner Brothers Executives forcing the film to be released on schedule to secure bonuses, and the CG removal of Henry Cavill’s facial hair. So perhaps it was for the best that no one in post-production decided that Superman needed the curl.
Here is a synopsis for the film:
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Amber Heard, Jeremy Irons, J.K. Simmons, Connie Nielsen, Julian Lewis Jones and Ciarán Hinds.
Justice League is now available on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, and DVD.
