Henry Cavill is now confirmed on being the part of the upcoming "Mission: Impossible 6," alongside Tom Cruise and the rest of the cast. The "Man of Steel" powerhouse still has an unconfirmed role, but could very well be aligned to the protagonist angle.

According to IGN, Henry Cavill was first mentioned on Instagram by director Christopher McQuarrie. In the post, McQuarrie makes a simple, civil offer to the actor for a part in the sixth installment of the franchise, without rushing the actor. The director was quoted, "Say, @henrycavill. Had a thought. Curious if you're interested in a role in the 6th installment of Mission: Impossible. No pressure," below his recently posted image.

Henry Cavill then responded to the message, saying that he cannot seem to say no to the man, especially with "such perfect hair." With that, the affirmation of Cavill's role truly is confirmed, despite the lack of concrete spills on his character. While this may be a truly interesting take, some characters from the previous "Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation" are returning, starting with actress Rebecca Ferguson. Jeremy Renner is said to also reprise his role, but Alec Baldwin's part-or return-is still to be announced.

As per NME, Henry Cavill could very well be the right hand man of Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt in "Mission: Impossible 6," coming from one role that required him to be of the secret agent caliber-"The Man from U.N.C.L.E." Despite such conditions, Cavill is still more primarily known for playing Superman in the existing DC Universe, and is expected to return as the caped Kryptonian in 2017's "Justice League."

No release date has been announced yet for "Mission: Impossible 6" nor for Henry Cavill's start of shooting. What do you think of the casting choice bestowed upon Cavill? Stay posted for more news and updates.
