Henry Cavill chooses to accept a role in Mission: Impossible 6

03.16.2017

Well, this is a surprise! Superman himself, Henry Cavill, has chosen to accept a role in MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 6. Directed by Christopher McQuarrie, the sixth entry will, of course, see the return of Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt (whom McQuarrie intends to explore more in-depth) and is said to be looking to bring back other returning castmembers to some capacity, including Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg and Jeremy Renner (although it's currently unknown if Alec Baldwin will return).

Cavill's role is described as "some sort of right hand to the head of the Cruise’s unit", so don't expect a villainous turn. This sounds like a great move for Cavill, who has already cemented himself as Superman, but has yet to branch out beyond that, despite a great turn in the criminally underrated THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. Cavill has a number of other projects on the way, including Netflix's SAND CASTLE, JUSTICE LEAGUE, and NOMIS, as well as what sounds like yet another adventure in the cape with a potential MAN OF STEEL sequel. Oh, and you can check out McQuarrie and Cavill's Instagram exchange below...

 

Say, @henrycavill. Had a thought. Curious if you're interested in a role in the 6th installment of Mission: Impossible. No pressure.

cool

excellent add to the cast, but I must admit soon as I read it I was hoping for a villain role, someone who could physically beat the hell out of Hunt after the last villain was alot more into the mindgames... one franchise I continue to look forward to

I thought the same thing when I saw his picture above. Personally, I'm rooting for tom hardy, although I don't see him getting the role.

I wouldn't say Henry Cavill is the worst, but there's not another actor I find so uninteresting and none charismatic

have you seen the Man from UNCLE? didn't have such a high opinion of him, but he and Armie Hammer were both pretty damn good in that...

Gave u a thumbs up for the strong opinion. Personally I hate jack black (school of Rock was watchable though). People tend to hate on strong opinions, unless they agree with you.

Quite a surprising casting. An interesting one too - I wonder if Cavill will be the replacement for Cruise that Renner was supposed to be.

I'm also guessing, by accepting this mission, that Cavill is no longer after the role James Bond (he auditioned when Craig got it, he was deemed too young at the time - and has stated it'd be "awesome" to play both Superman and Bond). Unless, of course, he'll be showing M:I-6 as one giant audition for it whilst Craig knocks one more out lol

Yeah, Cavill has definitely been interested in the Bond role for a while now. Craig has been pretty vocal that Layer Cake was more or less his audition tape for Bond, so I could see Cavill or Hiddleston or whoever else replaces him doing something similar.

Not since Sam Worthington have I seen an actor so wooden and emotionless.

This is awesome news. Cavill has made for the perfect Superman so far and was charismatic and charming as hell in The Man From Uncle. Glad to see him getting some more prime roles that will further expand his talents.

I actually think it's super ironic, because I feel like Cavill's Superman is the least charismatic screen version of the character ever, but you're right, he was immensely charismatic in The Man From UNCLE, which makes me think its probably the direction that's to blame more than the actor when it comes to dour Superman. Either way, good to see the guy getting more work.
