On April 19 the new film The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare opens in theaters. The latest film from Guy Ritchie stars Henry Cavill in the lead role. If you’re excited about this new film, like me, you might be looking to watch some of Cavill’s previous work. Below are five previous features starring Cavill you can check out in the next week to scratch the itch! Features appear in chronological order.

Man of Steel (2013)
About: This was the first film of the D.C. Extended Universe, which ended last year with Aquaman: The Lost Kingdom. In it, Cavill takes the mantle as Superman. We saw him play the part in four other films after this. He’s great in the role and this film does a nice job of laying out the world. If you want to embrace Cavil’s run as Superman, the films are streaming on Max.

The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015)
About: Our upcoming film wasn’t the first time that Cavill and Ritchie worked together. Here, the director sought to bring the classic series to the big screen. Cavill takes the lead role and the film is a lot of fun. It was likely meant to kick-start a franchise that never came to fruition. But I enjoyed this pairing.

Mission Impossible: Fallout (2018)
About: Cavill joined the Mission Impossible franchise for this sixth installment of the Mission Impossible film franchise. He plays a fun role that’s right in the middle of the action, leading to some great clashes with star Tom Cruise. If you’re wanting to dive in, this film like the rest of the franchise is now streaming on Paramount+.

Enola Holmes (2020)
About: Here, Cavill isn’t the lead. This is largely Millie Bobby Brown’s film, but Cavill plays an important role as the iconic Sherlock Holmes. He and Brown have some great rapport, and this film and its sequel—released in 2022—are a lot of fun. Both are now streaming on Netflix!

Argylle (2024)
About: Just this year, Cavill had the lead as a suave spy from some famous novels in this wild film from Matthew Vaughn. It has a sprawling cast and ends up with a complex story. But the sequences with Cavill are quite fun. If you missed the film in theaters, you can now catch it at home! It’s streaming on Apple TV+.
