Doctor Strange 2: Marvel fans were treated with the first official trailer of the highly anticipated Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness at the highly regarded Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show, which not only featured Kendrick Lamar and Eminem but also featured the likes of Kendrick Lamar and Eminem. From villains to new variants of superheroes, the portal of the multiverse also led to a number of fan theories and possibly new characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Benedict Cumberbatch plays Dr. Stephen Strange in the film, which continues the plot after Doctor Strange casts a forbidden spell upon the request of Tom Holland’s Peter Parker.
Two iterations of the Sorcerer Supreme were seen in the trailer, including an evil version of Doctor Strange as well as a Defender Strange. The trailer was enough to create buzz for the upcoming film, but this time, fans weren’t only looking for easter eggs, but they were also looking to confirm the major leaks that were going viral online. Fans seem to be hopeful that one of the leaks is accurate.
Is Tom Cruise the ‘Superior Iron Man’ in ‘Doctor Strange 2’?
The new trailer confirms the involvement of characters from non-MCU films in the aftermath of the opening of the portal of the multiverse. A flaming figure battling with America Chavez, portrayed by Xochitl Gomez, caught the attention of many viewers. The brief glimpse was enough to send the internet into a frenzy as many fans are convinced that this is Superior Iron Man.

Tom Cruise, the actor from Mission Impossible 2, was previously pictured from the sets of Doctor Strange 2. Many people took to Twitter to share photos and theories about the figure. One fan wrote, ”I reckon this is Tom Cruise as a ‘Superior Iron Man’ variant and member of Professor X’s Illuminati that Doctor Strange is being taken to for trial. Notice those are iron man/Ultron-Esque robots (sic)”.
So my thinking is that Tom Cruise’s will be Superior Iron Man, one who managed to perfect the Ultron program and has it under his control pic.twitter.com/zkJdkmwoo4
