In a groundbreaking move, Warner Bros Discovery CEO David Zaslav, along with Motion Picture Group’s co-chairs and CEOs Michael De Luca and Pam Abdy, has forged a strategic partnership with Hollywood icon Tom Cruise. This collaboration, effective this year, will see Cruise develop and produce original and franchise theatrical titles, positioning him back under the Warner Bros banner after his last venture with the studio in 2014’s Edge of Tomorrow.

Notably, this partnership isn’t an exclusive deal, as Cruise continues to work with Paramount on Mission: Impossible 8 and Universal on a $200 million space-themed film directed by Doug Liman. However, the return of Cruise to Warner Bros has ignited speculation and excitement among fans, particularly those anticipating his potential involvement in the DC Universe.

Here’s Instagram post:

For years, fans have clamored for Tom Cruise to don the green power ring as Hal Jordan, the iconic Green Lantern. With the confirmation of his collaboration with Warner Bros for franchises, including potential DC projects, the anticipation for Cruise’s entry into the superhero realm has gained traction. His star power and proven box office success could be a game-changer for DC, especially as it undergoes a rejuvenation under the helm of James Gunn.


Tom Cruise’s unparalleled appeal and track record, marked by the recent success of Top Gun: Maverick, could inject new life into DC’s cinematic ventures. The partnership aligns with Warner Bros Discovery’s mission to revitalize the studio and leverage its extensive resources, storytelling IP, and talent. In the words of De Luca and Abdy, bringing Cruise back to Warner Bros is a crucial step toward reclaiming the studio’s glory days.


Cruise’s return to Warner Bros could signify a pivotal moment for the DC Universe, as the studio aims to regain its dominance in the box office. His potential involvement in DC projects, whether as Green Lantern or another iconic character, could elevate the franchise to new heights. As the cinematic landscape evolves, the collaboration between a Hollywood legend like Cruise and Warner Bros Discovery holds the promise of an exciting chapter for both the studio and the DC Universe.
