Perhaps the most joyful story in moviemaking for the past year has been the ongoing delight of stachegate — the absurdity of a spat between Henry Cavill’s reshoots on last year’s Justice League and filming the just-released Mission: Impossible — Fallout, a tale of impressive follicles and dodgy CGI. And now we know it all started with some good old-fashioned studio pettiness.
