Henry Cavill thought Mission: Impossible 6 would kill him

Tom Cruise and Christopher McQuarrie

Because of his injury, production had to shut down while he healed. Cruise has since returned to action on the film, and of course has resumed performing stunts. I said, "It's broken".

The 34-year-old actor stars as Reville Smites in the sixth instalment of the spy franchise - which has been handed the title "Mission: Impossible Fallout" - and in one particular helicopter sequence, the "Man of Steel" star saw his life flash before his eyes. After all, he has that impervious superman image to uphold. But it seems like it was worth it because director Christopher McQuarrie got his money shot.

'Tom wants to thank you all for your concern and support and can't wait to share the film with everyone next summer'. "It's not fully healed, but we're shooting", Tom explained during an appearance on The Graham Norton Show. Cruise showed the leap from multiple angles, including a side-view that revealed exactly what happened. See the video above (warning: it's a little painful to watch). Mission: Impossible - Fallout finds Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his International Monetary Fund team (Alec Baldwin, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames) along with some familiar allies (Rebecca Ferguson, Michelle Monaghan) in a race against time after a mission gone wrong. During the segment, Cruise talks all about what went wrong with the stunt that broke his ankle. However, the third camera angle shows Cruise continuing to pull himself up on the roof and trying to run while limping!

"It's still broken, but I'm doing well", Cruise told Norton.

Speaking about the forthcoming movie, Tom said: "There is one big set piece, which has been two years in the planning".

Cavill - who was also on the show along with Ferguson and Pegg - admits that the scene frightened him a bit.

Tom Cruise joined Instagram Thursday and used his first posts on the social media platform to unveil the official title of "Mission: Impossible 6".

And, ever the daredevil, Tom also spilled the beans on some of the film's most incredible stunts, in a bid to top the moment Ethan Hunt clung to the edge of a plane taking off in the fifth film.
