Henry Cavill Joins ‘Mission: Impossible 6’

You wouldn’t know it from the dour, lame-as-dark-as-fuck Superman movies, but Henry Cavill is pretty goddamn charming. If you need proof, look no further than The Man From UNCLE. So while I’m a seemingly limitless DCU hater, I’m pretty excited that Cavill is joining M:I6.


“Justice League” star Henry Cavill has signed on to the sixth installment in the “Mission: Impossible” franchise.

Filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie made the announcement Thursday night in an Instagram post directed at Cavill.

McQuarrie posted a photo of himself standing on rocks overlooking a river, accompanied by the message, “Say, @henrycavill. Had a thought. Curious if you’re interested in a role in the 6th installment of Mission: Impossible. No pressure.” Cavill responded, “Oh ok…..I’m in!”

The director finished the exchange with, “@henrycavill Outstanding. Welcome aboard. Your social media account will self destruct in 5 seconds.”
