Viewers have been certain that actor Tom Cruise will appear in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness ever since the teaser was revealed. Rumors are circulating on media platforms that Cruise will portray Superior Iron Man, an alternative version of Tony Stark/Iron Man. However, according to a new, clearer trailer, there are very low chances of superior Iron Man/Tom Cruise featuring in the upcoming film.
All about the upcoming Doctor Strange movie:
With little over a week until the release of Doctor Strange, their marketing effort is already teasing events like the Illuminati’s arrival and the Scarlet Witch’s magical progression. However, there are still many mysteries to be discovered. Along with Patrick Stewart’s Professor X, fans just saw the first preview for the originally animated Captain Carter from What If…? This is only the beginning of the Multiversal sequel’s madness. Doctor Strange 2 will go farther than any other project into the notion of Variants, which was initially presented in Loki and expanded upon in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
What sparked Tom Cruise’s Superior Iron Man rumours:
Fans caught sight of a hazy figure during the Super Bowl TV ad and teaser of the upcoming movie. This grainy, low-resolution photograph began circulating on social media. This figure might have been either a Superior Iron Man variant or a Captain Marvel variant with Maria Rambeau behind the mask. However, people began to suspect that it was Cruise, wearing a motion-capture outfit. The expectation was that he will play an alternate universe Tony Stark in Doctor Strange 2.
The Theory of Tom Cruise in Doctor Strange 2, Debunked:
As Doctor Strange 2 release approaches, Marvel unveiled a new advertisement which provided a good look at this enigmatic guest. This figure emerges in this scene, flying through the headquarters of the Illuminati and firing photon blasts from her hands. It’s also clearer then ever before that this is a different Captain Marvel, featuring Maria Rambeau instead of Carol Danvers. As a result, the figure previously considered to be Superior Iron Man is actually Captain Marvel. Furthermore, KC Walsh, a writer who is known for being accurate when it comes to rumors about casting, narrative, characters, and other aspects of superhero films, has also stated that Cruise will not appear in the film.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is set to hit the theatres on May 6.
