Cameos, cameos, cameos. Everyone seems to be talking about it now Dr. Strange in the multiverse of madness it reached theatrical screens around the world. The multiverse epic has finally arrived after years of work and is already earning a dime at the box office. Directed by Sam Raimi (of Spider-Man and Evil dead fame), this sequel brought together elements of horror at MCU for the first time, while the Scarlet Witch unleashed her rage over reality.

However, before the film, there was a lot of talk about the potential to enter Multiversal The multiverse of madness. It was teased that Patrick Stewart would come back and repeat his own X-Men the role of Charles Xavier (aka Professor X), but it just felt like a drop in the bucket when it came to the potential for these surprises.
One name that fans threw away before the release was Tom Cruise as a potential variant of Tony Stark. Cruise was in the race to bring Stark back before Robert Downey Jr. got the role in 2008 Iron Man. That would give the veteran actor a chance to finally play the character, albeit in a minor episodic role.
Well, Cruise didn’t appear as Superior Iron Man, and Marvel is finally talking about rumors that have spread The multiverse of madness in the race to release.
Tom Cruise is considered a multiverse of madness
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Dr. Strange in the multiverse of madness screenwriter Michael Waldron addressed the now-missing rumors that Tom Cruise should appear in the film.
Asked about Cruise and fan speculation about the actor’s appearance below, he said – Yes, it was completely fabricated. He said he remembers talking to the head of the Marvel studio “Kevin [Feige] at one point “ if they could “Take Tom Cruise’s Iron Man,” but none of that ever happened:
“Yes, it was completely fabricated. I mean, there’s no cut-out footage of Tom Cruise! But I love Tom Cruise and I said yes [Marvel Studios president] Kevin [Feige] at one point, I thought, can we get Tom Cruise’s Iron Man? I remember reading about it a long time ago in Ain’t It Cool News, that Tom Cruise would be Iron Man. “
The screenwriter then said how “cool” there would be Cruise in the movie, but “He fired Mission Impossible 7 and 8. “ He explained that it was considered bringing Cruise, but in the end it never happened “due to availability:”
Rolling Stone: “To be perfectly clear, has anyone contacted Tom Cruise?”
Michael Waldron: “I don’t believe it. I just don’t think it was ever an option, because of availability.”
Superior Iron Man will have to wait
As much as Patrick Stewart’s return to the role of Charles Xavier seemed certain The multiverse of madness, and Tom Cruise as an alternative version of Iron Man. Many even believed, as it would eventually turn out, that Captain Marvel Lashane Lynch was seen in the early trailer for the Tom Cruise movie in Iron Man armor.
As already mentioned, Cruise was originally in negotiations to play Tony Stark at the beginning of the MCU, and the role eventually went to Robert Downey Jr. So this would be a great place for an actor to live his Marvel dream. But that did not happen.
And that doesn’t mean it will never happen. With the Marvel Multiverse in the game, anything seems possible. Just a week ago, many felt like a dream that John Krasinski would ever appear on screen as Reed Richards, and look what happened! Thus, the Multiverse can operate in mysterious ways. This Cruise dream seems perhaps a little unattainable.
One has to remember how crowded this man’s schedule is these days. Whether to fly fighter jets in the next Top Gun or saving the world as Ethan Hunt u Mission Impossible franchise, Tom Cruise always seems to have something on the go.
So, if Marvel Studios ever seriously wants to include an actor in the MCU, they will have to either book it years in advance or wait until things slow down; though, it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen anytime soon.
Without Tom Cruise Dr. Strange in the multiverse of madness it can now be seen in cinemas.
