Exclusive: Tom Cruise appeared on the set of Doctor Strange 2. Possibly Cruise will be playing the role of Iron Man’s Variant. A new leaked photo from the set shows Cruise exactly look-alike RDJ’s Iron Man. Check out the image below.
Tom Cruise was previously offered the role for Iron Man before Robert Downey Jr., the latter of whom was considered a huge risk at the time. However, he earlier said he didn’t feel ‘it was gonna work’, so he passed. Tom Cruise said no to film – because he wanted a few changes to the script and the makers didn’t want to compromise.
Doctor Strange 2 recently went for a lengthy reshoot to add new characters and cameos like Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, Patrick Stewart’s Professor X, Michael Fassbender, and Ian McKellen’s Magneto, not to mention Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool and maybe even Ioan Gruffudd’s Mr. Fantastic.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will hit theaters on May 4, 2022.
