A few weeks ago, Justice League actors Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, and Ray Fisher joined Zack Snyder and campaigned for the #SnyderCut. The DC Extended Universe actors took to their respective social media accounts to urge Warner Bros to release Zack Snyder's version of the Justice League on the occasion of the movie's release anniversary. However, Henry Cavill chose to oust himself from the movement. The actor, who played Superman in the Snyder directorial, has been kept quiet about the movement.

Two weeks since the movement made the headlines, Cavill has explained his silence over the controversy. In an interview with Jake Hamilton addressed the #SnyderCut movement and said there was no particular reason behind his silence while his co-star demanded the Snyder cut. The actor referred to his highly-talked about the moustache and confessed he did miss his moustache. 

"I mean I miss my moustache, which is the most important thing - for me it was just a harrowing reminder that I don't have it anymore, and so I just didn't want to dig that wound any deeper," he said. 

For those who have forgotten (really, how could you?), Cavill grew out the facial hair for his role as of August Walker in Mission: Impossible - Fallout. During the principal shoot of Justice League, Cavill sported a clean shave look. However, during the reshoots, he had the moustache and Warner Bros reportedly spent a jaw-dropping amount of money to remove it via CGI but it was evident in the final cut played in theatres. 

Given the bad output, fans have been urging WB to release Snyder's OG version. Several cast and crew associated with the movie, including Jason Momoa, have claimed that the Snyder version is so good, it deserves a standalone release. Reports have been doing the rounds suggesting that Snyder has approached the production house to release his cut. However, nothing has been official. Stay tuned to Pinkvilla for more updates.
