Marvel Studios Is Reported To Have Added Tom Cruise To The MCU

It’s been reported that Tom Cruise is now part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) with more projects.

There were tons of rumors of Tom Cruise being in the upcoming Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Websites report that he appears as a Tony Stark variant.  This is mainly because the studio originally asked him to take the role before Robert Downey Jr. Cruise declined because he did not like the script they gave him. If you would remember, even during the production with Downey, they did not actually follow any script and winged the shoot by scene. Iron Man was Marvel’s first self-produced project under their film division.

It’s presumed that his appearance in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will be Superior Iron Man. And that would only be a one time gig. Neither Marvel nor Disney confirms, but speculation of his participation is very high.

Giant Freakin Robot has reported that Tom Cruise has signed for an upcoming project for Marvel Studios. What his role is, or how many movies he will be in is still a big question. But it’s presumed that it might be one more film after Doctor Strange.

If he’s a Tony Stark of another universe, and is now in the MCU, does this mean that the Multiverse will have a longer effect beyond the Doctor Strange sequel? It would be interesting to see Tom Cruise as a villainous version of Iron Man.

If Tom Cruise is Iron Man in Doctor Strange, I do think he’s there trying to protect the multiverse. So, he might not be villainous after all. What I do like about the MCU characters is that the villains are not just evil. They have a purpose. They are only perceived as evil because of their actions, not because of what they are trying to do.

We have presumed that the multiverse will have a longer effect which will be felt in several movies. Ms. America, who will debut in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, can move from one universe to another. Her power actually proves the existence of the multiverse even without Doctor Strange’s botched spell. On top of this, we know that the movie Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will also deal with the multiverse. Considering that their main villain is Kang The Conqueror, it’s a big sign about the Multiverse. Kang himself can travel through time and show up in any universe he wants to.

Who or what character Tom Cruise will be will definitely play a larger role in the MCU. If in fact he is Superior Ironman, will he be included in the Secret Wars? If there is a separate movie, then there will be a character focus film.

So, what do you think of Tom Cruise joining the MCU? Do you think he will be the new Iron Man?
