Top Gun: Maverick star Tom Cruise suits up as the Hal Jordan version of Green Lantern for the DCEU in this cool artwork.
Thanks to a star-making role in Top Gun, where he played Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, a cocky but gifted air force pilot, Tom Cruise has been commonly fan cast as the Hal Jordan version of Green Lantern, who shares some of those traits, but is mostly just a really great pilot. While Tom Cruise is older than most actors that would typically be up for this kind of a role, he infamously ages really slowly, so as long as he’s in shape, fans imagine that he’d suit the role of a superhero just fine.
Digital artist “HJXArt” has come up with a new photoshop job that has Tom Cruise entering a different kind of “Danger Zone” as Green Lantern. The artwork reveals what Tom Cruise could look like wearing tights and a mask as Hal Jordan for the DCEU. It features a design that has elements that were missing from the Ryan Reynolds iteration of Hal Jordan in the Green Lantern adaptation that — as the two Deadpool movies constantly remind the audience — he’d rather forget. You can see Tom Cruise as Green Lantern for the DCEU below.
Tom Cruise previously tried his hand at cinematic universes with the lead role of The Mummy, and that ultimately led to some problems down the line as he, the director, and the studio couldn’t come to an agreement on the kind of movie that they wanted to make. Hopefully, if he were cast as Green Lantern for the DCEU, things would go over much more smoothly for Tom Cruise.
Green Lantern Corps is one of many DCEU projects currently being developed at Warner Brothers. The list also includes The Batman, The Flash, The Suicide Squad, Birds of Prey, Black Adam, Supergirl, Batgirl, and New Gods. Geoff Johns, known for his work with the character through stories like Green Lantern: Rebirth, Blackest Night, and Brightest Day, is writing and producing the Green Lantern Corps movie.
The DCEU continues with Margot Robbie’s Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) on February 7, 2020, followed by Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman 1984 on June 5, 2020. A Joker film set outside of the DC Extended Universe starring Joaquin Phoenix as the Clown Prince of Crime is also set to open on October 4, 2019.
Stay tuned for the latest news on Tom Cruise, Green Lantern Corps and the future of the DCEU!
