Henry Cavill is joining another franchise: The DC superhero is set to face some more unlikely odds in Mission: Impossible 6. The movie’s director, Christopher McQuarrie, shared the secret on Instagram, posting, “Say, @henrycavill. Had a thought. Curious if you’re interested in a role in the 6th installment of Mission: Impossible. No pressure,” to which Cavill responded, “How can I say no to a man with such perfect hair …” Per Variety, Cavill will play a right hand to Tom Cruise’s boss. In addition to Cruise, Cavill joins returning cast Jeremy Renner, Rebecca Ferguson, and Simon Pegg. Quite the league, even if it’s not technically super.
