An online rumor fed on social media has emerged that Marvel Studios wants Tom Cruise as Iron Man in Doctor Strange 2.
Long before the Marvel Cinematic Universe Whatever the super hit it is now, there were numerous attempts to bring Iron Man to the big screen as rights bounced around various studios. Universal tried it in 1990 with the director Stuart gordon (Baby I've shrunk the kids), while Quentin Tarantino was approached in 1999 when the project was established at Fox. Nick cassavetes The Notebook was signed in 2004 under New Line Cinema, before things fell apart once more and the rights fell into the hands of production company Marvel Studios in 2005. It was always rumored that Tom cruise could be involved in the role. But they were Jon Favreau and Robert Downey Jr. who created one of the most important and influential blockbusters ever made. It also served as a launch pad for what would quickly become the most lucrative and popular franchise Hollywood had ever seen.

Of course, Robert Downey Jr. retired as Tony Stark / Iron Man in Avengers: Endgame with one of the most epic endings in movie history. But that didn't cause speculation about his return to begin immediately. When and where he will make his return remains to be seen, but it seems highly likely that we haven't seen the last of him.
For now, however, it seems that Kevin Feige wants Doctor Strange and the multiverse of madness to be the ideal opportunity to refresh the Marvel Cinematic Universe and is considering bringing in a new actor to play the genius and billionaire playboy philanthropist. Although, in an alternate version of a different timeline. And the chosen one would be Tom Cruise.

This would be one of the most important decisions in recent years.
As reported Daniel RichtmanMarvel wants Tom Cruise to play Tony Stark of the multiverse, after the actor leaves the Mission Impossible saga. This is how he explains it:
“They are considering a lot of interesting cameos so that in the new Doctor Strange movie there are different versions of the character that we know. An example that I heard you are considering is Tom Cruise as Tony Stark from another Earth. At one point, Tom Cruise almost got the role of Stark before RDJ. "
While there's a chance that it won't happen, of course, especially as fans might turn away someone else playing the face of the entire franchise, when it comes to Robert Downey Jr.'s replacements as Iron Man, there are certainly plenty of options worse than Tom Cruise. Also, it seems like this would only be a cameo and not something that lasts long.
In any case, now we just have to wait and see if Tom Cruise, the Hollywood megastar, is open to the idea. Although with the amount of money Marvel would undoubtedly put in his way to get it, we imagine he would at least be willing to consider it.
