We live in the age of the internet, but more specifically this is an age of social media which is always buzzing with human activity. In the world of entertainment, the social media is particularly important as it allows studio executives, actors, directors, script-writers etc. Recently, the director of MI 6 Christopher Macquarie made the announcement on his Instagram account that Henry Cavill (who played Superman/ Man of Steel) has agreed to be part of the next movie in the Mission Impossible franchise.
He said in the message directed towards Cavill – “Say, @henrycavill. Had a thought. Curious if you’re interested in a role in the 6th installment of Mission Impossible. No pressure.” Cavill replied, “Oh ok…..I’m in!” To this, he responded @henrycavill Outstanding. Welcome aboard. Your social media account will self-destruct in 5 seconds.”
