Henry Cavill took off his “Superman” cape for a while and is set to return to the big screen in the much-awaited spy film “Mission Impossible 6.”

After Jeremy Renner confirmed he will not reprise his role as IMF Field Operations Director William Brandt, due to filming schedule conflict, the production staff found another superhero star for the series by bringing Cavill into Cruise’s next adventure.

Closer look to Cavill’s new spy look

The appearance of the “Superman” actor in the series was confirmed after director Christopher McQuarrie revealed a photo showing Cavill and Cruise while filming.

He teased fans with Cavill's photo for the upcoming movie.

Cavill has a new look that is very unlike his clean shaven, “good boy” aura as Clark Kent in “Man of Steel” and “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.” Take a look at his photo still below:

The actor appears to be in the back of a vehicle or an open helicopter.

It can be recalled that McQuarrie updated fans about the film, saying that they are now shooting in New Zealand after Paris.

This is not the first time that Cavill has appeared in a spy genre movie. He previously starred as Napoleon Solo in the 2015 movie, “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.”

Henry Cavill’s character in “Mission Impossible 6” has been kept under wraps but based on the photos revealed, some speculate that he will be playing a part as a spy and comrade to Tom Cruise’s character, Ethan Hunt.

Screen Rant wrote,"It’s assumed that Cavill will fulfill that role, but there’s also the chance that Mission: Impossible 6 will surprise us and have him in some sort of antagonist role."

When is the movie’s release date?

Even though the plot of the movie has not been fully disclosed, it is slated for release on July 27, 2018, by Paramount Pictures.

The movie will be the sixth installment of the “Mission Impossible” film sequel which stars Tom Cruise, Ving Rhames, Rebecca Ferguson, Michelle Monaghan, Simon Pegg, Sean Harris, Alec Baldwin, Vanessa Kirby, Angela Bassett, Henry Cavill and Sian Brooke.

According to Cruise, the fans can expect another breathtaking movie as he and the rest of his team prepared for over a few years to deliver the new spy movie sequel.

“It’s really crazy. We’ve shot some of the stuff in Paris already and it is going to be really wild and thrilling for the audience,” Tom Cruise said, according to Screen Rant. He added that he went through a lot of training and did a lot of testing to get the best possible results for the next “Mission Impossible” movie.
