The Mission: Impossible franchise shows no signs of slowing down, and that extends to the upcoming sequel, Mission: Impossible -- Fallout. With the first trailer set to arrive Sunday during the Super Bowl, Paramount Pictures is now teasing fans with a fast-paced, six-second preview.
That's just enough time to see Henry Cavill straight up decking a guy with a punch to the jaw, which, as we might expect from the actor who plays Superman, looks as if it hurt.

Cavill plays the mysterious August Walker in the sequel, written and directed by Christopher McQuarrie. No other details have been revealed about the character, save that at some point, he'll be meet Angela Bassett's character in front of the Eiffel Tower. Cavill's mustache is also on full display here, making its much-needed debut after being (somewhat-famously) digitally removed during reshoots of Justice League. The current Superman is no stranger to spy movies, having starred in the 2015 film Man from U.N.C.L.E. opposite Armie Hammer.
Tom Cruise reprises his role as Ethan Hunt in Fallout, joined by returning co-stars Rebecca Ferguson as Ilsa Faust, Ving Rhames as Luther Stickell, and Simon Pegg as Benji Dunn, along with franchise newcomers Henry Cavill, Angela Bassett and Vanessa Kirby. Christopher McQuarrie, who wrote and directed 2015’s Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation, is also back for its sequel. Also starring Rebecca Ferguson, Michelle Monaghan, Alec Baldwin, Sean Harris, Sian Brooke and Frederick Schmidt, Mission: Impossible — Fallout arrives in theaters July 27.
