Actor Henry Cavill will be seen as an antagonist in the forthcoming film MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE FALLOUT. He says it was fun to explore darker side of his personality.

"I don't think of it as a risky zone. For me, it was once in a lifetime opportunity to play with other parts of my character," Cavill told IANS.

"I try to put a little bit of me in every character I play or at least draw (something) from me. And it was just an opportunity to enter something different, have a different angle to it and cast a different light on me -- that for me is fun," added the actor, popular as Superman from the MAN OF STEEL franchise.

Cavill, who has big superhero films like MAN OF STEEL, BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE and JUSTICE LEAGUE added to his resume, loves telling stories.

"I don't love telling just one kind of a story. I want to tell multitude stories and this gave me an opportunity to do so," he said.

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE FALLOUT -- a Paramount Pictures movie -- will be distributed in India by Viacom18 Motion Pictures. It is set to release in India on July 27 in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
