Tom Cruise wanted to kill hitler: Tom Cruise always dreamt of killing Hitler. “I always wanted to kill Hitler, I hated him,” Cruise said. “As a child studying history and looking at documents, I wondered, ‘Why didn’t someone stand up and try to stop it?’” And that’s exactly the reason why he took up Valkyrie.

In the film, Cruise plays Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg, the key figure in a botched “bomb in a briefcase” attempt, code-named Valkyrie, to assassinate Hitler in his lair in 1944.
