Henry Cavill wants to prove there's more to him than Superman

Henry Cavill hopes his role in 'Mission: Impossible - Fallout' will prove he's capable of playing characters different from 'Superman'.

The British actor found worldwide fame when he was cast as the superhero in 2013's 'Man of Steel', and he has since reprised the character for 'Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice' and 'Justice League'.

In 'Mission: Impossible - Fallout', Henry plays August Walker, a mysterious CIA agent sent in to keep an eye on Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt and his Impossible Missions Force team, and he was excited to show off a side of himself nobody has seen on screen before.

Henry admits that the August Walker he signed up to play ended up being completely different to the character it became during the shoot, as director Christopher McQuarrie likes to evolve the roles during production.

The production took a hiatus after Cruise broke his ankle while filming a stunt.

'Mission: Impossible - Fallout', which also stars Simon Pegg, Vanessa Kirby, and Rebecca Ferguson, hits cinemas towards the end of July.
