Tom Cruise is a Comic Book "Sleeper"

Tom Cruise is a Comic Book

Tom Cruise is in talks to star in the comic book adaptation, Sleeper, for Spider-Man director Sam Raimi, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Written by Ed Brubaker with art by Sean Phillips, Sleeper, which ran from 2003-05, centers on an operative whose fusion with an alien artifact makes him impervious to pain and allows him to pass it on to others through skin contact. He is placed undercover in a villainous organization by an intelligence agency and falls for a member of the group, named Miss Misery.

Cruise, 46, has been looking around for projects in the wake of the departure of his long-term business partner Paula Wagner from United Artists, last week.

Sleeper is a spin-off book from the Wildstorm flagship title “WildC.A.T.s” and features characters from another spin-off book, “Gen 13.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK of Tom Cruise in this comic book adaptation, Sleeper?

  • Bionic

    Oh, I think it would do him good! I think it would be amazing

  • go sox

    Used to like Cruise; not impressed with the man, and who he’s become. He’s looking really old these days, or maybe he just looks so much older than Katie. Maybe he should concentrate on directing or producing movies now. I wouldn’t go see any of them anyway. Don’t want to put money in the Scientology pockets……

  • defap

    Tom is a good man. someones attack him for their secret agenda that they hide them very well. a lot others are just blind followers. I like to use my own eyes and brain.

  • Dani

    Well, he’ll ruin this project! He is no longer an actor on screen, just Tom Cruise. It is hard to watch his movies since he no longer gets in character.

  • Vi

    I won’t go see anything he is in or that Katie is in. As long as they support that cult of $cientology, count me out!
    His time has come and gone.

  • no one cares

    Tom Cruise needs someone to sit him down and tell him he’s too old to play the superhero. He is so blinded by his own hype, I doubt he’d get it. Which other actor feels the need to have google, you tube and banner ads running continuously online for months? EGOMANIAC.

    And I agree with the other poster – I will not support the cult of $cientology via Tom or any other celeb or project connected to them. They’ve ruined enough lives and scammed enough people.

  • where’s the money

    He’s seems to be in talks every week to do a movie that then seems to go to somebody else. Maybe you should wait until he actually signs on to do something before reporting it? Regardless, I won’t be seeing anymore of his movies. The are all hype and stink badly anyway.

  • Ello

    Blechhhhhh!

  • dancer

    I also won’t see anymore of his movies. I go to see a good movie with believable characters that support a good plot. I don’t go to see Tom Cruise playing Tom Cruise. I’ve not seen any of his movies since he divorced Nicole Kidman (just coincidental) and don’t plan to ever again due to his scientology over-the-top attacks on Lauer and Shields. Not to mention those scarey Scientology tapes of him showing his true self: Lunatic.

  • Anonymous

    Weird how his big nose point to the right and his chicklet teeth are off center to the left. Is this a cult sign? What does it mean?

  • Lo

    I’m sure this role will end up going to Angelina.

  • Balletmama

    His PR people are really trying desperately to keep him and his wife in the news to ensure Katie’s success on Broadway and the Nazi movie. So, will he be replaced by Angelina Jolie for this one too?

    Con Mom, Tyler, Libra, What’s up with our site, tomkatiscrazy?

  • help katie

    Who cares, boring phony.

  • gaygay

    Go be gay….. now that kh looks like a boy she can be gay too. What an amazing couple you two are!!!

  • Lillianne

    I think he has a really good toupee.

  • Guchi

    I wouldnt go see it…im bored of his face and his acting.. uhh cuz he’s never been thaat great at it! and honestly I think he’s too desperate to get back in front of the camera…when he def shouldnt

  • defap

    Why is couch jumping a bigger crime than cheating and homewrecking? Did he hurt anyone at all by jumping the couch? Just ridiculous!

  • rescue59

    I agree with #6,9 & 10.

    I don’t like him, and yep, it’s due to the scientology association. I won’t put on penny in that stupid cult, knowingly.
    I won’t even watch shows with known cult members (ie: “My Name is Earl”) because I refuse to give them the ratings, thus better salaries, thus more money to the cult.
    And no, I don’t care how that bothers the paid scientologists that troll over these comment sites, or how it offends the alien-huggers.
    Tom should keep himself in the male bath house on his little spaceship with all the young boys…just like L. Ron loved to do.

    Maybe Tom could do a movie about an idiot that gives all his money to a cult that uses children as slaves and sex slaves….call it Sea Org. Oh sorry, that’s his pathetic reality that he endorses. What a pile of puke he’s become.

    (calling me names won’t change the truth!)

  • P

    Tom Rocks! He is a hottie too. Who cares about his beliefs, he is an excellent actor. stop picking on him and get a life.

  • Johnny Lane

    How many box office bombs is it going to take for Cruise to realize his career is over? He even drags down movies with an ensemble cast like Lions For Lambs. And for that matter, so does his wife! Hold on to your money Tom, you are going to need it.

  • victoria

    RIGHT NUMBER # 22……. And he ” is to old to play an action hero “? Like Harrison Ford wasn’t? NO!!! What a silly response…. “he is looking his age”.? Well we all are!!! Why shouldn’t he??? Tom once said he would NOT have plastic surgery on his face… He still looks great for his age. ( I can hear it now. you don’t know HOW we look )…. Let him do the movie and wish him luck… Why try and push him down a black hole the minute he wants to do something??

  • Mav

    Being “attached” to a project is just another way to get yourself talked about without actually doing anything. Right now Cruise and his lovely empty wife are concentrating all efforts upon that objective.

  • victoria

    DANCER…. Remember, He DID apologize to Matt and Brooke in person and they accepted and have become friends. They even socialize together now, with their children…. I answered your post on the other ” Katie Stripes ” story>>>> I stand Corrected on that one…

    3: The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?
    4: And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,
    5: And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?
    6: Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
    7: They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away?
    8: He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.
    9: And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.

    12: For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother’s womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.
    13: Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them.

    When did Tom Cruise apologize to Matt Lauer? Because he never did. Why are all Tommy Boy’s fans so obsessed they have to lie? LOL.

    Tom Cruise may have claimed he had regrets in that PR rehab’ing crapfest on Oprah, but he’s never contacted Matt nor has he accepted the open invitation to go back on the show and discuss it.

    I think he’s too intimidated to face a person of actual intelligence who might ask compelling questions instead of just blowing smoke up his arse.

  • Rodi

    Who cares to see him anymore, he is a joke now. That plot seems too similar to the COS. Is that way is is interested?

  • Halli

    Too old to play a super-hero/comic book character.

  • JUST SAY NO

    At this point, Tom Cruise is the most powerful weapon – that is, the most effective recruitment tool – within the cult of $cientology.

    He’s also one of the richest and most “generous” donors to the Cult, most of which goes NOT to support its lowly workforce but directly to to the current leader of the cult, David Miscavage for his own use and for recruitment purposes.

    The people who join $cientology and pay for their services do so in the hopes of gaining increased intelligence and improved personality.

    Unfortunately, $cientology doesn’t deliver.

    Instead, $cientologists (when they finally reach the higher levels) are sold a space opera theology about alien spirits infesting their bodies – after having spent tens of thousands of dollars on $cientology courses and auditing sessions.

    The cost of reaching the highest level of $cientology’s secret knowledge, OTVIII (or Operating Thetan level 8) is estimated to be at least $277,010 and could be up to $376,500.
    It is a “bait-and-switch” scheme.

    Ask yourself: What kind of “church” sues to prevent public discussion of its theology?

    What other cults use thought crime legislation to enforce opinions that cannot win converts by reason and example?

    What other ideologies dismiss disagreement as false consciousness and insist on the power to indoctrinate the children of their opponents?

    BOYCOTT CULT CELEBRITIES

  • defap

    Well there are market rules in place, the rules about Supply and demand and market competition. Let the suppliers compete. We, the consumers, benefit from the competition. Boycott one supplier to benefit the other supplier is just a bad move for the public.

    Someone said he is not aging well. What? I think he looks great at 46! I would love to see this movie. Loved him in Tropic Thunder, he was hilarious!

    c/s Dani; the film will suck because it won’t be a comic book adaptation w/ Tom Cruise in it, it will be a Tom Cruise film w/ comic book setting (a la Stallone’s Judge Dredd)

  • Truman

    No lie, #31. Matt Lauer forgave Cruise. He even said it after the interview. You don;t know if he contacted Lauer or not.

    Why don’t you actually wait and see the movie before make such calls, #37?
