Top Gun: Maverick grossed $1.486 billion and became the highest-grossing movie of 2022. There’s a chance it’ll continue to hold that title if Avatar: The Way of the Water doesn’t work well enough. But anyway, you imagine that everyone involved in maverick would reap the rewards of its enormous success. And yet, there’s Glen Powell who still doesn’t feel famous enough for people to remember his name. Well, he’ll probably have to star in a big-budget superhero movie like Green Lantern to become a household name.
Glen Powell is more than just a “hangman”
Powell recently appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote his next war film, Dedication. But when asked how he felt about being in a billion dollar blockbuster, he said it had completely changed his life. And yet, people still don’t really know him by name because they remember him as his gallant pilot of maverickHanged.

Watch the interview right here if you haven’t already:
Lt. Jake ‘Hangman’ Seresin was a pretty cool character and Powell played the role in the best way possible. But even he would agree that he will have to star in at least 2 or 3 other big movies to become a household name. He’s the co-lead alongside Jonathan Majors in Sony’s upcoming war movie Dedication. So if this movie is successful (which it should be), it will surely start getting a lot more offers.
Glen Powell as the next Green Lantern perhaps?
A few months ago, the DCEU Home The Twitter account reported the rumor that another Green Lantern movie is in development with Top Gun: Maverick director, Joseph Kosinski at the helm of the project.
