In the first episode of Esquire UK’s new series ‘Fake News’, Benedict Cumberbatch corrects some outrageous falsehoods and blatant untruths that are floating around the internet about his life, career and impersonation skills.

In one of the many questions, it was asked if Strange is one of the smaller superheroes. At first, he was puzzled but continued to read, chuckled a bit as he realized that fans were talking about his height in the context rather than him being a literal “Marvel Superhero” as we all know how amazing our protagonist is!

While he clarified that it’s not true, he started again and then  Tom Cruise was mentioned. The answer was a bit puzzling. He told that the latter isn’t in the movie Multiverse of Madness. Though, the answer’s not clear as he might be keeping some secrets as he’s Doctor Strange.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is coming with the concept of multiverse and variants and this is why there are possibilities of various cast lineups that are making cameos either as variants of existing characters or returning to play fan favourite roles from other franchises. One of the rumoured cameos is Iron Man by Tom Cruise.

In a recent interview, Benedict was asked if Tom is in the film and he responded, “Tom Cruise? Yeah, he is in every scene you haven’t seen in the trailer. It is the biggest kept secret.” Now whether the response is serious or a joke is a top-notch secret until we see it with our very own eyes.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is all set to release on May 6 which is rumoured to feature several other starry cameos, including John Krasinski as Mr Fantastic, and Ryan Reynolds, Tobey Maguire, and Halle Berry reprising their roles as Deadpool, Spider-Man, and Storm, respectively. However, none of these is confirmed.
