It's no doubt that when the first Mission: Impossiblefilm was released in 1996, people all over the world fell in love with Tom Cruise's character, Ethan Hunt. Through the use of innovative ideas and iconic stunts, the movie became a success which spawned five sequels and a huge fan base.

The Stages Which Determined The Future Of Mission: Impossible

According to Screenrant, although franchises like Star Wars and Fast & Furious, and other comic book film adaptation gets more publicity and attention in the box offices, the Mission: Impossible franchise still remains a top contender. Their clever use of the balance between action and adventure, coupled with the appeal of the futuristic gadgets, the franchise set a benchmark in the film industry for the next generation of spy movies.

On the other hand, in Mission: Impossible III, they made it in such a way that people would be able to get to know and love the franchise better. However, the third installment would only bring in moderate success in terms of reviews and finance. Furthermore, after the release of the fourth installment, Ghost Protocol, the franchise's future were uncertain as there were rumors of Tom Cruise's departure from the movie, which entails that Jeremy Renner would be taking on the lead role.

However, despite all of the problems and rumors surrounding the franchise back then, Tom Cruise decided to stay and with Ghost Protocol and its sequel Rogue Nation, each earning nearly $700 million. The franchise became stable and would reach the milestone of the eighteenth highest grossing franchise of all time.

What's Next For Mission: Impossible

In an article written by Coming Soon, it was reported that Rogue Nation Director Christopher McQuarrie went on Instagram to cast the Superman actor, Henry Cavill, by asking him if he was interested in a role in the latest installment of Mission: Impossible. This post certainly got the attention of Cavill as he replied to McQuarrie, saying that he'll do it only if he gets to fly for real.

However, this isn't the first time the actor would be playing a spy in his film. Coming Soon has also mentioned that Cavill has already played the role of a spy in Guy Ritchie's film, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. The talent and personality that Cavill brought to his role in Ritchie's film may have been the ones that led McQuarrie to cast the actor.

Furthermore, aside from Cavill that'll be joining Tom Cruise, it was revealed that fans will also see the return of Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner, and Rebecca Ferguson. Production for Mission: Impossible 6 will start on April 10 in Paris and the film is set to debut on July 27, 2018.
