Warner Bros. Film Studio did try to get Tom Cruise into the adaptation of the Green Lantern comic series. According to the Comic Book, the popular Hollywood actor was asked to play the main role, but in the end the negotiations came to a standstill.

The actor considered such a development of events uninteresting for himself. According to anonymous sources, negotiations took place in the spring of 2018, and the first rumors that Cruz may receive a corresponding offer from Warner Bros. appeared at the beginning of the year. Potential candidates included Bradley Cooper, Jake Gyllenhaal, Armie Hammer and Joel McHale.
