BRITAIN-ENTERTAINMENT-CINEMA-SUICIDE SQUADMove over, Ryan Reynolds; you're not the only superhero movie star who can craft the perfect social media post.

After reports came out Monday that Henry Cavill's mustache is complicating reshoots for "Justice League," the subject of the actor's facial hair became surprisingly controversial. The hullabaloo even inspired "Mission: Impossible 6" director Christopher McQuarrie to defend the 'stache as Cavill is reportedly keeping it for his role in the action flick. We'll apparently understand its importance in a year, and in the meantime, the actor himself responded on Wednesday.

Cavill added humor to the admittedly ridiculous situation by posting a photo from the set of "M:I6" and including an entertaining message about "this despotic 'stache":

Dear followers, it is time to finally set the record straight in this moustache fiasco. Pictured above, is not a set on MI6 but is in fact the latest in a series of weapons being designed by Warner Bros and Paramount Studios to combat the entity known as "Henry Cavill's Moustache". There has been no discussion over whether to shave or not to shave for the JL reshoots, simply a relentless campaign to put an end to the seemingly inexorable conquest of this despotic 'stache. It is not a question of IF I should shave - it is a question of how can we possibly be victorious against such a beast without bringing our own doom raining down upon us.
