Don't tell Paramount Pictures, but while filming Mission: Impossible — Fallout, director Christopher McQuarrie and co-star Henry Cavill were apparently working on ideas for a sequel to WB's Man of Steel.

Director Christopher McQuarrie's name first surfaced as a potential director for WB's Green Lantern Corps. film, which will star Hal Jordan and John Stewart. However, the Mission: Impossible - Fallout helmer created a stir not too long after when admitted that he'd actually be game to direct a Man of Steel sequel.

It was that very acknowledgment that McQuarrie was questioned about recently while out promoting the latest installment of Tom Cruise's Mission: Impossible franchise.

"Henry Cavill knows what it would be like. We had a lot of time hanging out on set, and Henry’s a huge fan of Superman," began the screenwriter-turned-director, who also has (unofficial) writing credits on the first X-Men film, The Wolverine and Star Wars: Rogue One

McQuarrie went on to add, "I can’t help but talk story to people, so he told me his take on Superman and I thought it was really great, and I gave him my two cents.
