Henry Cavill bids adieu to Mission: Impossible – Fallout

Henry Cavill bids adieu to   Mission: Impossible – Fallout

Paris: Fans may wonder "What is Superman doing in a Mission: Impossible' film?", but Henry Cavill says it provided him the perfect opportunity to ditch the suit and the good guy persona for a while.

Cavill, 35, says he enjoyed exploring a different part of his psyche through the portrayal of August Walker, a ruthless CIA agent, nicknamed 'The Hammer' for his take-no-prisoners approach, who takes an instant dislike to Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt when they are forced to team-up for a mission.

"It, for me, was a wonderful opportunity to play a different character. Just to play around with a character that I have not yet explored and maybe, something different to that part of my psyche as well, which is always fun. Storytelling is fun and I want to be able to tell a variety of stories," he said.

"It also gave me a chance to work with someone like Tom Cruise, which I was not going to pass up. It was really interesting to talk to Tom on the sets everyday, I genuinely enjoyed it. Director Christopher McQuarrie is a great storyteller and I wanted to work with him."

Also starring Rebecca Ferguson, Alec Baldwin, Angela Bassett, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, Vanessa Kirby and Michelle Monaghan, the film releases worldwide on July 27.
