If you didn’t know (’cause I just found out yesterday evening) DC Comics is working on bringing a new Green Lantern movie to theaters in 2020 which would be its nine year rebirth after the incredible DC Comics flop version of Green Lantern seven years ago which starred Ryan Reynolds. Ryan Reynolds, however, teamed up with Marvel to play the role of Deadpool and that would turn out to be a SERIOUS upgrade. But, as the newest Green Lantern film starts getting ready for production the casting ballot is out and it seems that Tom Cruise may become the man for the job.
Armie Hammer, who you may know for his role in the Oscar-nominated Call Me By Your Name, is supposedly in the running to play the role of Green Lantern in this upcoming superhero revival but it’s been reported that the production company wants a big name actor to potentially play Green Lantern. And that’s where Tom Cruise comes in.
He has been approached about the rumor and he says he will gladly take on the role, on one condition which is that he doesn’t want Green Lantern to die in the movie. If they don’t kill off Green Lantern then he really may take the role! Can you imagine that? Tom Cruise taking his resumé to the next level by playing a DC Comics superhero? That sounds kind of awesome but it could also be a tad bit ridiculous at the same time.
Marvel has been geniuses behind their casting for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man. Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange. Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther. Tom Holland as Spider-Man. The list goes on and on. DC Comics, however, hasn’t made the best casting decisions except to cast Henry Cavill as Superman (he truly looks like Superman) and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. Tom Cruise as Green Lantern could be a really awesome decision or a really bad one at the same time.
And to validate that this may actually happen the director for the past few Mission: Impossible movies, Christopher Mcquarrie, has been in talks with the production of the Green Lantern movie. So, yeah, we may really see Tom Cruise become a superhero within the next couple of years. Wow!
How does this news sound to you? Would you like to see Tom Cruise play Green Lantern or do you think that would be a bad idea? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.
I saw Mission: Impossible-Fallout a week ago and I can tell you, it’s still blowing my mind. I’ve seen a LOT of action movies but I’ve never seen an action film quite like this before. It was astounding to watch and an absolute treat. But this doesn’t dissuade from the other Mission: Impossible movies’ awesomeness. For over two decades Tom Cruise has taken the character, Ethan Hunt, to new locations, new heights (literally,) and new insane obstacles that seem, well, impossible to complete. And yet Ethan Hunt still finds ways to save the world, even if it comes at the last. Possible. Second. It’s the best!
But how do these films rank in this action-packed franchise? That’s what I’m here to share with you. Enjoy!
Mission: Impossible II
I watched Mission: Impossible II a few years ago and while it did possess one of Tom Cruise’s most jaw-dropping stunts in the franchise the movie was really, really bad. There was WAY too much slow-motion and a little bit too much smooching for my liking. It was so bad in fact that I’m kind of surprised they made a third Mission: Impossible film…but I’m glad they did. 🙂

This past Sunday I finally got the chance to see Mission: Impossible-Fallout and I was beyond excited. The critics were claiming it to be one of the greatest action movies ever made and, surprisingly, the Rotten Tomatoes score was gradually climbing over the past week. I had to see what all the praise was about. I can honestly tell you it’s true. Mission: Impossible-Fallout, in my humble opinion, is the greatest action movie that has ever hit the big screen.
Literally from beginning to end this film delivers thrills and suspenseful moments left and right while still being able to provide an understandable and compelling story. Think of all of the great action movies you’ve ever seen (Speed, Mad Max: Fury Road, Die Hard, and The Fugitive, just to name a few.) This movie is better than all of them combined!
I mean this movie has edge-of-your-seat, heart pounding, chill-inducing, giddy-laughter creating, eye-widening, I-can’t believe-this-movie-is-this-good kind of action in it.

Four years ago Edge of Tomorrow premiered in theaters around the world. The trailers and commercials didn’t excite me and I almost didn’t want to see the film. But my family and I decided to take a chance on it and so we went to see it over Maleficent which had also just recently come out. It was one of the greatest movie surprises I’ve ever had.
Edge of Tomorrow is a classic alien invasion story with a Groundhog Day twist as one man (played by none other than Tom Cruise) is forced to relive a traumatic day that leads to a horrendous battle over and over and over again. He acquires the help of an acclaimed warrior, Rita Vrataski, and together they are dealt with the task of defeating the aliens before they take over the world.
It’s an action-packed science fiction film unlike any other alien invasion movie I’ve ever seen and clearly one of my Tom Cruise favorites. If you liked War of the Worlds this film will utterly blow your mind.
It did so well in fact that now a sequel, which will be helmed by the same director, Doug Liman, is in the works. But here’s the catch. The sequel is actually going to be a prequel that once again features Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt kicking some more alien booty. Um…awesome!
How it’s going to work, I have no idea, but Doug Liman has said that he intends this movie to change the way we view sequels. That sounds pretty cool and I can’t wait to see it. 🙂
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.
This movie summer season has been jam packed with exciting blockbusters from Avengers: Infinity War and Solo: A Star Wars Story to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and Ant-Man and the Wasp. Now Mission: Impossible-Fallout is set to hit theaters tomorrow! and I honestly couldn’t be more ecstatic. I am a huge Mission: Impossible fan ever since I saw Mission: Impossible-Ghost Protocol for the first time. I mean, watching Tom Cruise climb the Burj Khalifa skyscraper in Dubai was downright breathtaking.
Now critics are saying this is the best Mission: Impossible movie yet and are also claiming it to be one of the best action movies ever made! Oh my goodness, I’m practically bursting at the seams with excitement for this film.

Every few years there’s a new Mission: Impossible movie to enjoy and this summer’s sixth entry into the spy thriller franchise looks to be the most action-packed installment yet. Here’s the trailer.
I saw Mission: Impossible-Rogue Nation in the movie theaters three years ago and it was positively awesome. This film seems to have taken that sense of exhilarating action to the next level as this trailer contains nonstop action throughout its two minute and thirty-three second run time and that is super exciting. It’s summer time and that means it’s blockbuster season and who doesn’t love thrilling blockbusters? I know I do.
I also like that this trailer provided a better insight into the new characters such as Henry Cavill’s CIA agent, August Walker, who is supposedly the main villain in this film. (Ha! That evil Superman theory is going to come true after all. Lol.)
And it seems that the stakes are kicked up yet another notch as Ethan Hunt’s arch nemesis, Solomon Lane, returns to enact his revenge. *rubbing my hands* Exciting.
All in all, this was a great trailer and now I’m beyond excited to see this film. Especially in IMAX. It’s going to be 100% amazing.
Here’s the official poster for the movie and I love it. It perfectly fits the tone of the movie and it’s just a well configured layout of a poster. It actually may be my favorite poster of the franchise so far which is definitely a good sign for the movie. Did I mention I can’t wait to see this film? 🙂
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.
Earlier this month I wrote a post about all of the movies I was excited to see this year and Mission: Impossible 6 was of course one of those movies. Now we finally, thanks to Tom Cruise, have the name for his next installment in this action-packed franchise. It’s called Mission: Impossible-Fallout.
That’s an interesting name but what does it mean? The last one was called Mission: Impossible-Rogue Nation and it was about a covert organization that were basically the anti-IMF who were using their skills to terrorize the world. Now this film is called Fallout and I can’t wait to see what that implies.
Paired with the name of the movie Tom Cruise also released an image of the movie showing him performing yet another jaw-dropping stunt. Check it out.
Yes, that is Tom Cruise hanging on to the side of a helicopter because he is just that awesome. Who knows what’s going on but I can’t wait to find out. Hopefully, because he just released the title of the movie, a teaser trailer will be coming out soon but until that time this is the latest news about the newest Mission: Impossible film.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.
