What do you do if you don't want to pay to go and see the not very good Justice League, but you really want to be part of the conversation about how weird Henry Cavill's CGI face looks?
Fear not! That first scene is now available to watch online.
The footage was posted by a South Korean retailer - the movie will be released in that territory on digital download on 19 December - it won't land here online until next year.
The video shows the first three minutes which roughly breaks down to around a minute of idents, a minute of Supes talking direct to camera, found footage style, and then the first scene of Batman scrapping with burglar Holt McCallany (from Mindhunter).
Cavill grew an impressive moustache for his role in Mission: Impossible 6 but because of Zack Snyder's departure from Justice League and Joss Whedon picking up the reins, he needed to return for reshoots.
Paramount, however, wouldn't let him shave it off leaving the studio with no option other than to CGI it out. Unfortunately making it look like he's sucking a gobstopper on one side of his face.
FX studio LDN even offered to CGI a moustache back on for M:I6 but no dice. Talking on an AMA Reddit they were clearly happy with the results.
"To some people it's a cool little project to get stuck in to and another problem to solve, which is what a lot of VFX is about. Challenging. To me, as a fan, I was annoyed," LDN Films said.
"Paramount should've shaved him and stuck a fake one on for MI6. [It was] ridiculously petty of them.
"We did tests on already shot footage of Superman to add a beard as well to show the 'MI6' team at Paramount it was loads easier, and Warner Bros. offered to pay for all the beard adding shots in MI6.
"They said no."
Check out the clip to observe Cavill's uncanny-valley mouth. In the meantime, this hilarious Marvel fan has given some MCU characters the CG 'tasche treatment too.
