The DC slate has undergone a ton of changes and developments in recent weeks, and one of the most fascinating films to follow has been Green Lantern Corps. With the promise of a "Lethal Weapon in Space" formula, the adventures of Hal Jordan and John Stewart are going to be unlike anything we have ever seen in the silver screen DC universe, and that's worth getting excited about. And our anticipation has officially kicked into high gear, as we have just learned that DC has reportedly narrowed the shortlist of possible Hal Jordan actors down to Tom Cruise, Joel McHale, Bradley Cooper, Ryan Reynolds, Armie Hammer, and Jake Gyllenhaal.

That's seriously an impressive shortlist of actors, and it's hard to know what to make of it. To help you make sense of it all, we have decided to separate each of these A-listers and figure out whether or not they have what it takes to play The Emerald Knight. Now let's get started with the man who will likely be the most polarizing choice for Hal Jordan.

Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise

If DC came out and announced Tom Cruise as Hal Jordan for the DCEU, there's a strong case that such a casting announcement would probably receive an avalanche of backlash. That said, despite the fact that Tom Cruise has become a polarizing figure in Hollywood over the years, it's hard to deny the fact that he's kind of tailor-made for a role like Hal Jordan. Playing a cocky hotshot is second nature for him, and he has a proven ability to nail action-comedy hybrids. Besides, even at 54-years-old the guy still looks as good as he did when Top Gun hit theaters. Leave your preconceived notions at the door; this could work.
