Ever since Marvel dropped the trailer of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, fans have been speculating about Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool officially entering the MCU. But Ryan had recently refuted the reports. In a recent chat with Variety, he said, “I’m really not in the movie”. Fans, however, believe that he is trying to keep the news under wraps.
Eagle-eyed fans also spotted a variant of Iron Man in the trailer, being convinced that this was Superior Iron Man from the comics. Theories have been building up about Tom Cruise playing a new Tony Stark. Though Marvel writer and Superior Iron Man co-creator Tom Taylor clarified that he didn’t have ‘inside information’ on what the studios was doing with the character, he explained that this seemed to be Tony Stark’s Endo-Sym armor, which has a red and orange glow when this version of Tony is angry.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will bring back actor Benedict Cumberbatch in the titular role. It also stars Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda and her story begins after the Marvel series WandaVision.
The much-awaited movie will hit the theatres on May 6.
