Tom Cruise has established himself as one of Hollywood’s most sought-after stars. He has portrayed many iconic roles in a wide range of movies. There were rumors for Tom Cruise to portray Iron Man in the MCU for a long time. However, it seems those rumors were ultimately unfounded.

Robert Downey Jr gained recognition all over the world due to his role as Ironman in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Before him, rumors spread that Tom Cruise was in the running to portray the role.

While speaking in an interview with Phase Zero, Tom revealed that he actually wasn’t even close to landing the role. This did not come as a shock to many people at all. However, he did not rule out portraying a superhero someday.

“Not close. I love Robert Downey Jr., and I can’t imagine anyone else doing that role, and I think it’s perfect for him.


I look at a movie and think, you know, I don’t rule anything out. It’s “What’s the story? What’s the character.”

The legendary actor recently arrived on set to tape his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Friday (February 24) in Los Angeles. He also has other movies in the pipeline to keep him busy, so that’s all that matters to him right now.
