The cruise was not interested in playing a role that would cover his face for most of the film. In a throwback video clip, the Top Gun actor finally addressed the rumours after years of silence. Tom Downey's Iron Man is one of the most beloved characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Last year, speculation swirled about him appearing in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness as Earth-838's Supreme Iron Man. 

It's only possible to tell what happened if you're a fan. Brandon Davis shared a clip on his Instagram account showing Tom Cruise talking about rumours that he almost played Iron Man in the MCU and his thoughts on Robert Downey Jr. His response to whether he was close to playing Iron Man can be seen in that clip.

In addition, he mentioned that he loved Robert Downey Jr. The video clip was posted recently by Davis with the caption, "Tom Cruise kinda almost played Iron Man? Rumours that have been circulating for a long time are addressed. It was reported that MCU kept Tom Cruise's Iron Man shots for future projects before Doctor Strange 2 was released.
