If they ever do another sequel, though, I say they promote the Ethan Hunt character to more of a Team Leader role, and focus on a new supporting cast. Tom Cruise might not go for that, though.
This film was meant to be Cruise's last, which was why it spent so much time establishing Jeremy Renner's character (who was supposed to take over as the series lead). But Cruise changed his mind about quitting because he enjoyed making this one too much (IIRC).
