Henry Cavill & Alec Baldwin May Return For Future Mission: Impossible Movies

The duo of Henry Cavill and Alec Baldwin may see a reprisal of their roles in the next two Mission: Impossible films.

Director Christopher McQuarrie let slip on The Hollywood Reporter that he may look to bring the two actors – both of which who starred in last year’s acclaimed Mission: Impossible – Fallout – back into the fray.

Cavill (Man of SteelThe Man From U.N.C.L.E) played as the enigmatic assassin John Walker, while Baldwin (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation30 RockThe Departed) as IMF boss Alan Hunley.


As those who watched M:I – Fallout, both characters perished in the events of that story. As far as speculation goes, the two will most probably return via flashbacks.

McQuarrie looks to continue his stint at the helm of the two future M:I films that are apparently shooting back-to-back. This is hinted further by series lead Tom Cruise on a recent Twitter post, stating that the new films will come out on the summers of 2021 and 2022 respectively.

While Cavill himself has yet to confirm this news, he is currently wearing a different hat – or in this case, wig – in the form of monster-slaying hardass, Geralt of Rivia, in the upcoming Netflix series The Witcher – an adaptation of the dark fantasy novels (not the games, despite the popular opinion) by Andrezj Sapkowski.
