Filming continues on the The Man From U.N.C.L.E. where more set images have hit the net of Henry Cavill, as well as Armie Hammer and Hugh Grant.
Cavill plays Napoleon Solo, a CIA Agent who gets paired up with Russian KGB Agent, Illya Kuryakin, played by Armie Hammer. Grant plays Alexander Waverly, the British head of the multi-national intelligence organization U.N.C.L.E.
It's sort of interesting that Cavill gets paired up with an at-one-time-Batman with Armie Hammer, once attached to the Dark Knight in the defunct 2008 Justice League movie, while Ben Affleck was paired up with the younger Justin Timberlake in Runner, Runner, playing an egotistical rich gambling tycoon. Seems some parallels are present for Batman Vs. Superman.
The Man From Uncle Synopsis:
Set against the backdrop of the early 1960s, at the height of the Cold War, “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” centers on CIA agent Solo and KGB agent Kuryakin. Forced to put aside longstanding hostilities, the two team up on a joint mission to stop a mysterious international criminal organization, which is bent on destabilizing the fragile balance of power through the proliferation of nuclear weapons and technology. The duo’s only lead is the daughter of a vanished German scientist, who is the key to infiltrating the criminal organization, and they must race against time to find him and prevent a worldwide catastrophe.
