Doctor Strange 2 TV Spot Debunks Tom Cruise / Superior Iron Man Theory

The latest TV spot for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness debunks rumors that Tom Cruise’s Superior Iron-Man will feature in the movie.

The latest TV spot for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness debunks a popular theory regarding the live-action debut of Superior Iron-Man.

The brief trailer, which features a collection of clips from the film, provides a better look at some of the footage featured in previous videos, including a clearer shot of the now notorious glowing character. As pointed out by The Direct, the entity appears to be Monica Rambeau aka Captain Marvel, albeit in a very different costume. Many fans were convinced that the character was actually an evil variant of Tony Stark, dubbed the Superior Iron-Man in the original comics, played by Tom Cruise.

While it’s currently unknown whether the Captain Marvel in the trailer is the same Monica Rambeau who featured in WandaVision, some fans believe her to be a multiversal variant of the hero. Many have pointed to the character’s markedly different costume and hairstyle as evidence that the Multiverse of Madness incarnation of Captain Marvel is one that has yet to be seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The identity of the glowing figure spotlighted in some of Multiverse of Madness’ earlier trailers has been a contentious point among fans despite producer Richie Plamer shutting down Superior Iron-Man rumors. “I would love to see Tony again, but some rumors are just rumors,” Palmer said.

While Superior Iron-Man may not feature in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the film is set to include a multitude of other MCU characters. Another recent TV Spot confirmed that Captain Carter, a variant of Peggy Carter who takes the Super Solider serum, will make her live-action debut in the movie. The character first joined Marvel Studio’s sprawling cinematic universe in the animated series What If …? and was voiced by Haley Atwell. At the time of writing, Captain Carter’s live-action actor is unknown but fans suspect that Atwell will reprise the role.


Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will take the Master of the Mystic Arts on a journey across multiple universes. Following his meddling in Spider-Man: No Way Home, Doctor Strange must confront the consequences of his actions, coming face-to-face with several dark versions of himself.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness hits theaters on May 6.
