They've been selling us on Henry Cavill as the main antagonist of Mission: Impossible—Fallout for quite some time, but this new footage from the film shows that they at least start out on the same side.
The various trailers for the film have been edited in such a way as to make us think that Cavill is out to get Cruise, but it's clearly the trick of some manipulative editing. Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if they were setting him up to take over for Cruise once he's strong-armed into retiring.
Lord knows they've tried it before with Jeremy Renner, who isn't back for this adventure because of scheduling conflicts with Avengers 4. They've got to look to the future, because Cruise isn't Superman. As much as he tries to act like it, he's just not.
Cavill, on the other hand, is Superman. It's a fact. He's also at least twenty years younger than Cruise, so production won't have to shut down for quite so long if he gets injured. Mark my words, Cavill's probably not the villain of this thing and will probably be angling to take over the franchise.
We'll find out one way or the other when Mission: Impossible—Fallout opens on July 27.
