On Monday, I spent a good amount of time writing about Henry Cavill’s mustache. Heck, Kaila spent a while writing up the most tender love letter to Captain America’s beard.
Those are words I never thought I’d be typing in my entire career, but hey, whatever, there’s a first time for everything, right? Speaking of first times, this has to be the first time I’ve ever seen a riff on a movie trailer made specifically to highlight somebody’s facial hair. Here, you’ve got David Johns’ take on Batman v Superman, which they’re calling Batman v Superman (Moustache [sic] Edition).
Yes, it is as glorious as you’re imagining it’ll be. I’m going to be honest: I kind of unloaded all of my useful mustache jokes in the earlier post, so you’re just going to have to go over there to read them and pretend I wrote them here, too. I really didn’t think I’d be writing about more mustaches, honestly! But here we are. This is the world we live in. That’s fine with me.
Hats off to Johns here for that superb editing work. Those mustaches are appropriately bushy, stout, and epic. They absolutely are the kind of mustaches that just fit so well in the DC comic universe, don’t you think? Like some studio exec just read a 2012-era report about how Millennials like dark and gloomy heroes and they’re like, “Oh, mustaches are dark and gloomy and mysterious. I always brood over my mustache. Give Superman one.” This is what they were imagining. This is the Superman we deserve (and need!) right now.
