A day after the annual Comic-Con extravaganza in San Diego, a report from Variety revealed some trouble brewing in the DC Extended Universe. It seems that the film’s intense reshoots are taking longer than usual, costing Warner Bros. a hefty $25 million. But the most newsworthy item, the one that caused Twitter to go wild with Photoshop gags, is that a small portion of the budget is being spent to digitally remove Henry Cavill’s newly-grown mustache.

Cavill, who will undoubtedly return as Superman, grew some scruff for his next role in Paramount’s Mission: Impossible sequel, but the Justice League reshoots are intruding on his schedule.

Between Ben Affleck’s possible exit as Batman and a lot of other headaches concerning Justice League, Cavill’s face fur, which he can be seen with all over his Instagram, is just the latest headache, even if it’s a minor one. But is everyone behind the next DCEU installment overthinking this? Is spending CGI money to zap Cavill’s grass grin necessary? Maybe not. Because, as it is often the case, there’s precedent in the comics for a returning Superman to sport a ‘stache.

Chief among the many inspirations for the current DCEU continuity has been 1992’s The Death of Superman, the infamous multi-authored storyline in which Superman met his demise (or so everyone thought) in a fatal battle with the monstrous Doomsday. A year later, after four posers tried to replace Superman, the real Man of Steel made a triumphant comeback in a sleek black unitard with a silver “S” (and no cape), and with longer hair because it was the ‘90s.

That explains the black suit; expect something like it to show up in Justice League this November. But the beard is different, and more complicated, as comic books tend to be.

In 2015-2016’s Superman: Lois and Clark written by Dan Jurgens (Jurgens was also one of the writers of The Death of Superman and created Doomsday), a Superman from a pre-reboot reality wears the same black suit while rocking a nice beard. This “pre-reboot” Superman lives to replace another recently deceased Superman. The beard was a visual choice to differentiate the two men from each other, with pre-reboot Clark Kent shaving when he makes himself known to the world and to the Justice League.

When Henry Cavill took on the role of Superman for 2013’s Man of Steel, a deep promotional tie-in with razor brand Gillette inspired the look of a bearded Clark Kent prior to his awakening as a superhero. So on top of the comics, this very continuity of the DC Universe has given us a glimpse of a hairy Superman.

In Zack Snyder Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Superman sacrificed himself in a final stand against Doomsday. This November, Justice League will pick up where Dawn of Justice left off, and without a doubt, fans will witness the return of a Superman reborn — just like in the comics. But at the insistence of Warner Bros. who are probably sweating over continuity issues with the reshoots and what was already filmed, Superman will not have a beard to go with his resurrection. That’s really odd; hasn’t Warner Bros. read the comics?

Justice League will be released in theaters on November 17.

It’s only Tuesday, but the latest batch of Fortnite: Battle Royale challenges have already leaked. We actually covered the initial news (and the mystery behind it) last week, but with Season 6 challenges quickly approaching here’s a quick guide on what you can do to prepare for the update (presumably version 5.3).

When the creator of The Simpsons and Futurama does a fantasy series for Netflix, it inevitably feels a lot like Homer Simpson going to Westeros. But rather than being anything like the legitimate Game of Thrones spoof that happened with the The Simpsons Season 29 premiere, Matt Groening’s Disenchantment sometimes feels like a drunken smattering of fantasy themes and tropes, as if Homer was recapping Game of Thrones but kept getting it confused with other fantasy stories because he had one too many Duff beers.

Now that Fortnite: Battle Royale received its v5.20 patch, the next update for the week comes on Thursday when the Week 5 Challenges go live. Thanks to some data miners, those challenges showed up a bit early, and in the case of this week’s tasks, there’s even a treasure map to inspect.

Shotguns in Fortnite: Battle Royale are probably the most popular weapons in the game. They’re plentiful and do a lot of damage. For those reasons, the weapons are constantly rebalanced by Epic Games and it appears players are in store for another change coming.

Eric Williamson, design lead for Epic Games, tweeted Tuesday about a possible change to the Pump Shotgun. Next week, the developer will release its v5.30 Update for Fortnite: Battle Royale, and it appears this version of the weapon will get a faster equip time. This could make the Pump Shotgun a favorite for players once again.

Wednesday was the release of the Heavy Sniper Rifle in Fortnite: Battle Royale. The powerful new weapon can not only take out players with one shot with ease, it can also decimate any object in its path, and players are making full use of rifle’s potential in matches throughout the day.
