Director Christopher McQuarrie took to Instagram to break the news that the Superman star will be joining the American action spy movie with Cruise in the lead.

He offered him the role by posting his picture:

And this is how Cavill replied to the director:

The director-actor duo had a humorous exchange when McQuarrie said, "Just a few caveats: must enjoy extreme heights, high speeds, motor vehicles of all varieties (especially aircraft), practical stunts, firearms, and sporadic exposition. All good?"

To this Cavill replied, "Oh ok... Im in!" and the director wrote back with, "Outstanding. Welcome aboard. Your social media account will self-destruct in five seconds."

Mission: Impossible 6 will hit the US theatres on July 27, 2018.
