MCU fans have been hoping ever since this movie’s initial announcement that the studio wouldn’t hold back any punches, and if this proves to be true, this could mean that absolutely massive things are coming when the MCU Multiverse is finally fully explored. So far, the only non-Doctor Strange use of this expansive world was from Mysterio in Spider-Man: Far From Home, although it was proven to be completely fake before the end of the film.
In a new release from insider Daniel RPK’s Patreon account, Marvel Studios is reportedly considering using a number of different cameos to show multiple versions of Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange through the course of 2022’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. While nothing is confirmed to be happening yet, the post reveals something interesting about actor Tom Cruise:
I have they are considering a bunch of interesting cameos for Strange to play different versions of chatacter we know. One example I heard of they are considering is Tom Cruise as Tony Stark from another Earth (At one point Cruise almost got the role of Stark before RDJ)
The Tom Cruise information is such an exciting prospect for Marvel Studios, and it could open the door for many potential Marvel actors to have even a small moment in the next magical adventure. This also isn’t the first time this theory has been crossed, with another rumor from January mentioning the idea of different versions of MCU characters in this movie as well.
