A Marvel fan and a talented artist has imagined an alternate Marvel Cinematic Universe and recreating Iron Man as Tom Cruise for the movie Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. In the last film of MCU, Avengers: Endgame, Tony Stark aka Iron Man played by Robert Downey Jr. died in the climax. However, in the upcoming movie of the Marvel Universe, Doctor Strange, there is a possibility for the return of Iron Man. Hence, fans are speculating a different actor in character.
Doctor Strange 2 is one of the biggest and most awaited movies. It is an integral part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s fourth phase. The multiverse could lead to infinite opportunities and possibilities of storytelling in this movie. However, most of the plot is still a mystery and wrapped under the cover. Doctor Strange will most probably explore the multiverse with Scarlet Witch played by Elizabeth Olsen and Mordo played by Chiwetel Ejiofor. However, it is still a question whether he will play the role of the villain in the movie or as the ally.
The opportunity of exploration by the MCU will lead to a dizzying sequence of alternate realities, and spdrmnkyxxiii has taken the advantage to create the illustration of Tom Cruise in the attire of another universe’s Iron Man. Spdrmnkyxxiii’s art shows Cruise in the famous Iron Man red and gold suit with an Arc Reactor glowing right in the center of his chest. He made no helmet for Cruise to showcase the goatee and haircut of Cruise just like Tony Stark.
Along with the illustration, he wrote: Read a rumor that Doctor Strange 2 will have alternate realities and @tomcruise was being looked at to play #TonyStark and be one of the alternate realities #Ironman in a cameo.
Though this rumor isn’t from a credible source (wegitthiscovered) I definitely wouldn’t mind this area. Casting different actors as alternate versions of superheroes we already know seems like an exciting idea.
What do you think?
In the post, spdrmnkyxxiii says that he was inspired to create the art after reading that Tom Cruise might be an alternate reality’s Tony Stark. The fan was excited but advised his viewers and followers to take the rumor with a pinch of salt, adding that the rumor is not from any credible source. Additionally, Downey Jr. confirmed that he would no longer appear in any Marvel Cinematic Universe projects. So fans are speculating if Robert Downey is not Iron Man then Tom Cruise is the right choice for Doctor Strange’s Iron Man.
