Blind Items Revealed #5

March 8, 2018

This diminutive A+/A list mostly movie actor is the front runner to portray the lead in a new superhero movie. The thing is though, the script calls for the superhero to be killed. The actor wants no part of that and says if he is playing the role, that part of the script needs to be changed.

Tom Cruise/Green Lantern

Heroes die, Timmy. Get over yourself.

AJ said...

Imagine seeing little Tommy standing next to Ben Affleck and Jason Momoa in the next Justice League movie.

cebii said...

AJ - he'd be on a box.

the leprechaun lantern

totaji said...

I like Cruise but jeez, he doesn’t need to be in everything. Plus I miss stuff like Magnolia and Collateral.

riffer73 said...

Edge of Tomorrow 2? Oblivion 2? If he wants another franchise there are two right there.

Nutty_Flavor said...

Cruise should do a film about an ageing superhero trying to figure out how to deal with a decrease in his superpowers.

Still, you have to hand it to him for sticking around through a fair number of bombs, waiting for the MI franchise to cycle him back to the top again.

I see they no longer bother making up rumors about his love life.

Freckles said...

The Oompa Loompa Lantern. There has to be someone better for the role...thousands of someones

Sara, Making It Work said...

I agree. Magnolia and Collateral are how I like my Tom Cruise.
But I'm not likely to see Green Lantern regardless of who's in it.

B626 said...

I’d watch Knight & Day2
Bring Cammy out of retirement too

Mhdz said...

So is Abin Sur the lead in this one?

Unknown said...

This is gonna bomb so fucking hard.

I wonder if this is the huge super secret script/project Kevin Smith has been hinting at for a couple of weeks, that's he's attached to.

No Wuckin' Furries said...

Hello, spoiler alert?

Mrs Meat said...

What about if he dies off screen? After running away. From his gay thoughts

Nonya Bidness said...

That movie would bomb. Tommy is no RDJ. I dunno how people can stomach him, he's so 1-dimensional.

Sal Salington said...

That would have been a mistake for both Cruise and the movie. Good thing it's not happening.

Just Paige said...

Great group of comments on this one!

Thank you @AJ for the actual laugh out loud at the visual of Tommy Boy with the 6+ Ft crew.

I met Cruise when I was about 14, and was very disappointed I was taller than him.

Unknown said...

Kevin Smith? The fat sack of shit who wrote the worst movie ever made Chasing Amy, a movie about a guy who can’t over his lesbian girlfriend being a slut? That Kevin Smith?
The only thing he is attached to is the vending machine.

nancer said...

tom hasn't been hot for years. 'top gun' was his peak for me. i don't know why anyone wants to see him at all anymore.

Itttt said...

BWAAAHAHAHAAAA, although I guess he IS the right age to play the old, golden age Green Lantern or the older version of Hal Jordan.

He's also the right height to play the Guardians of the Universe, that created and run the Green Lantern Corp. They're a bunch of alien blue midgets.

Love the leprechaun lantern comment (along with propping him on a box. His power ring can also generate solid energy projections, so it could make magic green shoe lifts, stepladders, etc. for him to be propped up on.

Is he going to try to tie the Green Lantern Corps alien origin into Zenu/Xenu and Scientology???

Jane Hanoi said...

green lantern was already done with ryen reynolds. why bring it back again?

Itttt said...

Green Lantern Oath - Tom Cruise version

"In brightest day, in blackest night,

No evil shall escape my sight.

Let those who mock my diminutive height

Beware my power - Green Lantern's light!"

Neal M said...

A 60 year old Green Lantern? Ummm… ok...
I am going to go out on a limb and say - aint going to happen.

Adrastia said...

Oh come on Tom. You can turn it into your Titanic moment.

VDOVault said...

And people laughed at Clooney Bale & Kilmer as Batman...this is hilarious.

I say do it so we can be done with Cruise. It will be the superhero version of Battlefield Earth.

David R said...

Theres a Green Lantern comic when the old GL (Hal Jordan) goes mad and kills a lot of people, and a new GL (John Steward, the Black one, from the Justice League Cartoon) is appointed, and has to kill him.

I would pay $10 to see Idris Elba kick Tom Cruise's ass

Cee Kay said...

LOL +1!

Cee Kay said...

@Unknown You clearly don't know much about Kevin Smith.

“Wheeee but i dun wannna dieeeeee...” —Tiny Tim

🖤🤷🏻‍♀️

Scandi Sanskrit said...

🎌 Yes but is it a JAPANESE vending machine. 🎌

Scandi Sanskrit said...

Why tho? It makes me so sad.

Everytime I tell people that “Batman & Robin” was the first film I saw in a cinema without parental supervision people just LOL at how “terrible” it supposedly was. I don’t remember much of it TBH, I just wanted to pee the whole time because I had had too much soda with that level of Air-conditioning.

It’s a part of my dark past that I can’t ever erase...

Life. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Fairylights said...

LOL David R.! I can't see this one.

Aoife said...

I'm stuck on the visual of Cruise standing with Momoa and Affleck.

Lindy said...

Why would they want the lead in a tent pole movie to be killed? That doesn’t seem likely. Maybe the writer wants it for “artistic” reasons but no one else will be on board.

dear god NO!!! everything is all about him. nothing gels for the 'scenes' he wants set up for him to look manly / emotional / action man. .......he ruined Jack Reacher for me too.

Unknown said...

Kevin Smith has said several times that he doesn't think he's appropriate to direct a big superhero film.

And the comics / superhero film fan blogs have picked up this blind and are running with it like crazy.

BRAD PITT said...


he died in that hitman movie he did with jamie fox

Viking Song said...

Tammy Cruise had his day in the 80s and 90s. He could have transitioned into millennial film making had he dropped playing the action hero, but unfortunately he didn't.

Skyler the Weird said...

He will be Hal Jordan. He'll die and either John Stewart or Kyle Rayner will be the Film GL for Justice League II.
