Nothing lasts forever, including hairstyles. Now that “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” has wrapped filming, Henry Cavill is moving on. His next role is with Nicholas Hoult ( “X-Men: First Class”) in the military thriller “Sand Castle.”

Set during the U.S. occupation of Iraq, a squad of American soldiers attempt to protect a small village. Of course, the military frowns on copious amounts of hair, so that means one thing: Superman’s coif has got to go.

Cavill captured the moment for posterity in a time-lapse, complete with a glimpse of his new character’s finished look.
