People Have Noticed Something Strange About Henry Cavill's Beard In The 'Mission: Impossible' Trailer

People Have Noticed Something Strange About Henry Cavill's Beard In The 'Mission: Impossible' Trailer

There's just something about Henry Cavill and his facial hair, isn't there? First of all the moustache was digitally removed for Justice League which cost a whopping $25 million (£18m) which caused a bit of a stir.

And now people have started to notice that his facial hair seems to be self-generating from stubble to a full beard during a short clip in the trailer for Mission: Impossible - Fallout.


It's almost like they want us to keep talking about his furry face, isn't it?


If you haven't spotted it on the trailer - you're not looking hard enough but, admittedly, it is a tricky one.

The reappearing feature can be seen during a bathroom scene where he is about to engage in a little fisticuffs.


After repeated viewing of the trailer, it seems that the beardy conundrum could potentially just be the result of a weird lighting moment.

But we're going to pretend that Cavill generated his facial hair through the sheer force of his air punches - and you can, too.

We reckon even Henry himself will tell fans his secret.

Now the facial hair is becoming a talking point (again) with people noticing the quick turnaround and not being able to un-see it.

One fan took to Twitter saying: "Henry Cavill is really out here spontaneously growing a beard... the power of his facial hair can't be contained."

Another added: "Someone pointed out to me that Henry Cavill spontaneously grows a beard in this GIF and I can't unsee it."

And a third commented: "This is just magical. I can't help but thinking about all the men out there struggling with growing a beard when Henry Cavill makes it look so effortless."


And we all know a guy who can't grow a beard, but pretends he can anyway - leaving him with too many bald patches to count - but God loves a trier so you keep it up.

Going back to Henry Cavill's beard though, someone does have a probable explanation for it's brisk regrowth - and it's all to do with lighting apparently.

Putting everyone straight, this Twitter user said: "I'm not sure if you're aware, but this is actually a trick of the light interacting with Henry Cavill's face and movement and that in high resolution, non-gif form the magic beard growth isn't a thing."


But we still like to think it could be, right?
