One of the most fantastically absurd things about the 1960s Batman television show is the way Cesar Romero, who plays The Joker, does so defiantly with a moustache in place. Known in his youth for playing a Latin lover, the actor – who could, it is said, rival Fred Astaire on the dance floor – refused to shave his moustache, and thus the man who played The Joker on screen the most often did so with white facepaint barely hiding his hairy upper lip. This is patently silly, but it worked because that loony show was in on the joke.
In Justice League, a behemoth of a film which features some of the most iconic heroes of all time, Superman has a moustache. Only he doesn’t.
