See Tom Cruise as Green Lantern Hal Jordan joined by Henry Cavill’s Superman and the other members of Justice League in this epic new image.
The new Green Lantern film has been in development for some years now. It seems that DC and Warner Bros. still haven’t quite cracked how they can reintroduce this character after the first film’s massive flop. One of the solutions they might be looking into is to cast a very big star in the role of Hal Jordan. Tom Cruise was previously rumored to be a contender, and now we can see him join Henry Cavill’s Superman and the Justice League in this amazing new image. Check it out:
Aside from the fact that we still don’t know if Tom Cruise will be selected to portray Hal Jordan, Henry Cavill’s future is also still unknown in the DCEU. There have been rumors doubting Henry Cavill’s future involvement in the DCEU as Superman, but his social media posts indicate that he’s still very much involved with Superman. In the post-credit scene from Shazam!, Superman appeared but without showing Henry Cavill’s face. On top of that, there have been no announcements regarding a Man Of Steel sequel featuring Henry Cavill. Henry Cavill is currently wrapping up Netflix’s The Witcher. Aside from all of this, Henry Cavill is one of the fan-favorite Superman actors ever to be featured on the silver screen and many are expecting him to keep going.
The long-in-development Green Lantern Corps is rumored to be a buddy-cop movie with an older, experienced Hal Jordan training the young recruit John Stewart in the ways of the Green Lantern Corps. Tom Cruise has been rumored to play this experienced version of Hal Jordan while several other actors have expressed their interest in playing John Stewart such as Ricky Whittle, Common, Trevante Rhodes, Sterling K. Brown and of course Tyrese Gibson. Although Tom Cruise isn’t a young actor that could reprise his role as Hal Jordan in future DCEU films, it would be interesting to see the original Green Lantern symbolically passing on the baton to a younger Green Lantern. It certainly wouldn’t be an easy task to get Tom Cruise on board with this film, but if DC and Warner Bros. pulled it off, it would be a major step forward for the DCEU.
