As Superman fans know, Henry Cavill (and his mustache) are part of the next chapter in the “Mission Impossible” film series.
During an appearance on “The Graham Norton Show”, fellow cast members Tom Cruise and Simon Pegg revealed that they had a bit of fun with Henry and his connection to Superman.
Simon Pegg: We were shooting a car chase in Paris and it was me, Tom, Sean Harris, Ving Rhames and Henry. So it’s a very cramped car, particularly with Ving and Henry who are both big guys, and me in the middle. Bombing around Paris, and every time we finish the shot, we have to reset the shot, drive back to the start point so we can do it again. Henry has had enough of sitting in the cramped car, so he says, ‘Can I run back, I’ll run back.’ So Henry took off and ran back to position one whereas we just drove next to him going, [mimics classic Superman theme song].
Tom Cruise: He was doing the score, we’re just driving, he did the whole thing the whole way, right next to him.
Henry Cavill: It’s one of the coolest moments of my life is having Tom Cruise do that driving next to you. You know you’ve made it.
“Mission Impossible: Fallout” will be released on July 27, 2018.
