A new image circulating on social media from the sets of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of madness has left the MCU fandom divided. It is blurry but many believe it shows Tom Cruise in a motion capture and he is attempting another reality kind of Tony Stark.
It could just be fake but the person in the image does resemble Tom Cruise and sports a beard that is consistent with Tony Stark of both comics and films, but not everybody is convinced, one user wrote,” it doesn’t match the suits they wore on set. Also the lighting on his face does not match his body.”
Others said that they do not want to see anybody else in the Iron Man suit, not even Cruise. “ I know I’m late to the panic but don’t you ever show us Tom Cruise playing Iron Man. I would rather not see Tony Stark ever again.” While the image might indeed be fake, we have seen in the recent past that even blurry looking leaked pictures portraying it to be from the movie may end up disclosing the truth.
There could be another Tony Stark. Spider-Man: No way home, the most recent MCU film, also had two other Spideys crossing over to MCU. Interestingly, Cruise was approached to essay Tony Stark before Robert Downery Jr. but he passed the opportunity because he didn’t think ‘ It would work.’
In 2015, he told IGN, “ It’s not happening. Not with me, no…They came to me at a certain point and, when I do something, I wanna do it right. If I commit to something, it has to be done in a way that I know it’s gonna be something special, and as it was lining up, it just didn’t feel to me like it was gonna work. I need to be able to make decisions and make the film as great as it can be, and it just didn’t go down that road that way.”
If Cruise is indeed essaying Tony Stark, even for a cameo, would be a great wink to the casting that didn’t happen. Among Marvel fans the artist has often used their imagination to put on paper how Cruise would have looked in the role. Maybe, In a lateral cosmos, Cruise did become Iron Man, but the Mission: Impossible Franchise is likely weakened and ended after 2 or 3 films.
