Why wasn’t Tom Cruise’s Iron Man in Doctor Strange 2?

While the top-tier cameo assassin, Wanda Maximoffwent to town with some of the most powerful figures in Marvel in “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness“, included John Krasinski as Reed Richards, aka Mr. Fantastic, there was one guest appearance that she never broke. sweat for

As much as the internet was in a frenzy theorizing that Tom Cruise would step in as the Illuminati variant of Tony Stark, it wasn’t meant to be. The new face of Stark Industries was absent from the movie, no matter how many Ultron bots were on display.

In the lead-up to the film’s release, many fans believed that the shot of a super-powered being taking on the Scarlet Witch was actually Superior Iron Man, a version of Tony who went a little power-mad in the comics.

Of course, by now, it’s been confirmed that it was actually Lashana Lynch as Maria Rambeau, who in that universe became Captain Marvel. While some may be disappointed in the reveal, it seems that according to the film’s writer Michael Waldron, we really only have ourselves to blame.

As a result, when asked if Cruise ever got a call, Waldron revealed that Feige and Marvel never did. “I don’t think so. I just don’t think it was ever an option, because of availability.”

It’s a shame it never happened, but there’s a good chance it took the limelight out of a handful of other great appearances already in the movie. Also, let’s face it: this is Tom Cruise after all.

He wouldn’t sign anywhere unless he could fly around in a functional iron suit while fighting a real Scarlet Witch. Maybe next time, folks.
