Mission Impossible 7: Tom Cruise Faces ‘Cheap Harley Quinn’ Knock-Off in Pom Klementieff’s Mystery Villain With Ex-Girlfriend Hayley Atwell

This is the film the Mission: Impossible fandom has been waiting for since the franchise’s advent in 1996. Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt becomes the best superspy that the modern era has faced in recent times. But even as the actor sets out to end the franchise in the most epic showdown of all time, the fans await another’s arrival with even more exhilaration than the return of Ethan Hunt: that of his new, improved, and more cunning enemy.


As it turns out, that coveted role goes to the semi-familiar face of Marvel actor, Pom Klementieff who is set to impress the audience in her maniacal turn as the Big Bad in episodes 7 and 8 of the Mission: Impossible saga.

Tom Cruise Prepares Himself For Dead Reckoning Part One

While the mention of Tom Cruise gains enough clamoring for his role in bringing the theatrical distribution business out of the black hole of oblivion and extinction, the actor himself has been busy prepping for the seventh and eighth installments of his most beloved movie series, Mission: Impossible. And he has been getting ready to don the spy suit for the final two laps on the big screen, which of course, should be expected to come with their fair share of extraordinary stunts, each crazier than the last.

In the short intervals during which Tom Cruise does find the time to promote his movie, the audience can see him hanging outside a World War-era fighter jet or jumping off from cliffs riding a motorcycle, and free-falling into a cavernous gorge of certain death and harrowing consternation. As Cruise inches closer to the end of his Mission: Impossible tenure, his stunts have been getting ridiculously more unbelievable by the minute and the fans are all here for it.

Pom Klementieff Readies Herself For the Big Bad Debut

While everyone awaits the next chapter in the saga of Ethan Hunt’s globe-trotting adventure, a wiser faction of the fandom has revealed that the anticipation lies more in the discovery of Pom Klemetieff‘s new role as the villain against Cruise’s hero. But with the release of the first look at the new villain, some concerns have taken shape in the fandom’s mind given the look and the feel of the character so far.



Tom Cruise’s mega-stardom in the industry has given the actor and his contemporaries from the Mission: Impossible franchise the leeway to act out their wildest dreams and fantasies with the added benefit of having the world’s biggest star as their leader. But despite the daring attitude with which most of the MI cast gets set on their globe-trotting adventure, none can come close to the wildly imaginative thrill of impossible stunts that Cruise is most famously known for.

And now, as the latest villain of the franchise takes her seat at the front row before the epic showdown can begin, fans await a battle of the sexes as the franchise’s alpha meets his villainous counterpart in Pom Klementieff’s Harley Quinn-like Big Bad who is destined to stand as the ultimate adversary the IMF agent has ever faced.
