According to a recent article by IGN, Tom Cruise was so impressed with the upcoming DC film ‘The Flash’ that he felt compelled to make a surprise call to its director, Andy Muschietti.
‘The Flash,’ scheduled for release in November 2022, is a key installment in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU). The film centers around Barry Allen, portrayed by Ezra Miller, who first made his appearance as the Flash in ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ and later in ‘Justice League.’ The movie is set to delve into the multiverse, bringing together beloved characters from different timelines and universes. Both Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck have been confirmed to reprise their respective roles as Batman from their individual film franchises.
Cruise’s attendance at the exclusive screening was unusual, as actors not affiliated with the franchise are typically not invited to such events. However, it has been suggested that his presence might be connected to his ongoing professional relationship with Warner Bros., as the studio is producing several of his upcoming films, including ‘Mission: Impossible 7,’ ‘Mission: Impossible 8,’ and the sequel to ‘Edge of Tomorrow.’
Following the screening, Cruise was reportedly so taken by the film that he decided to cold-call director Andy Muschietti to express his admiration for the project. This unexpected gesture highlights Cruise’s genuine enthusiasm for the movie, and it has ignited speculation among fans about potential future collaborations between the actor and the DCEU.
While there is no official news of Tom Cruise joining the superhero universe, his presence at the screening and subsequent phone call to Muschietti have fueled discussions about what roles he might take on if he were to join the franchise. In the meantime, fans eagerly await the release of ‘The Flash,’ which promises to be a thrilling and innovative addition to the DCEU, and look forward to Cruise’s upcoming projects.
