As per Comicbook, Nicholas Hoult revealed that he almost starred in three massive projects, including The Batman, Top Gun, and Mission Impossible. “I screen-tested for Batman and didn’t get it,” Hoult revealed in the interview. “Screen-tested for Top Gun, didn’t get it. Then I got the call from Tom Cruise: ‘Hey, how about Mission Impossible?’ OK. Got it. Then I had to drop out because I was already attached to doing some more of The Great.”
