Henry Cavill gets to keep his mustache as Omni-Man in a new guise Invincible fan art by BossLogic. Premiered on Amazon Prime Video last month, Invincible has proved a hit with fans at the end of the first season. Shortly before the season finale aired, Amazon announced that the series has been extended for an additional two seasons.
Created by Robert Kirkman, the series follows Mark Grayson (Steven Yeun) as Mark Grayson, a teenager who discovers that his father, Nolan (J.K. Simmons), is Omni-Man, the most powerful superhero in the world. As Mark begins to develop his own powers, he becomes the rookie superhero Invincible, hoping to follow in his father’s footsteps. Unfortunately, Mark has a lot to learn about his father, including the violent maniac behind the “superhero” gimmick.
Unlike Superman, Omni-Man wields a heavy mustache. With a look that reminds BossLogic of Henry Cavill’s digitally removed Justice League mustache, BossLogic saw a good opportunity to cast Cavill as Omni-Man in his latest fan art. While a similar mustache just doesn’t look right on Superman, it works really well for a live-action Omni-Man as Cavill makes a convincing Nolan in the artwork. You can check it out below.
“I have found an application for the mustache,” the digital artist writes in the caption.
Many DC fans will know that there is a famous legend of Cavill being brought back Justice League rerecorded by Joss Whedon after Zack Snyder left the project. Because Henry Cavill played a mustachioed character Mission: Impossible – Fallout, he couldn’t shave his facial hair. As the story goes, the solution was to use CGI to digitally remove Cavill’s whiskers from every shot. The original footage has never been released, but a recent viral video is adding back the stock Justice League to show what it might have looked like.
There is a chance that Cavill is done playing Clark Kent in the DCEU. After years of rumors that he was done with the superhero, it was recently reported that Ta-Nehisi Coates had a Superman reboot for Warner Bros. with a new take on the character. Even when he’s out as Superman, some fans want to see him stay in the superhero genre by moving to the MCU as Hercules. Cavill currently stars as Geralt of Rivia in the hit Netflix series The Witcher, which will debut its second season later this year.
Invincible is based on the comic book series Skybound / Image by Robert Kirkman, Cory Walker and Ryan Ottley. Kirkman’s second longest-running series behind The living Dead, the Invincible comics ended their run in 2018 after 15 years. In addition to the animated series, Kirkman has said there is also a movie version in development with Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg attached.
The first season of Invincible now streams in its entirety on Amazon Prime Video. No release date has been set for Season 2 yet, but it’s good to know that two more seasons are on the way. Cavill’s fan art as Omni-Man was created by BossLogic.
