Watch The Trailer:
Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man
Many fans believed that Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man would appear in the Doctor Strange sequel because Sam Raimi is back at the helm, and Maguire returned as the character in Spider-Man: No Way Home. But that didn’t pan out exactly the way fans wanted it to.
Deadpool Making His MCU Debut
With Fox now being a part of the MCU, Deadpool was rumoured to make an appearance in the film. So much so, that many fans even believed that spotted him in one of the posters. Welp, we all know how that worked out.
Balder the Brave
Bruce Campbell always is a part of Sam Raimi’s movies. Either it be a main role or a cameo, he is going to be there no matter what. Many believed that Bruce would be a member of the Illuminati playing the role of Balder the Brave, but he turned out to be a Pizza Poppa vendor.
Ioan Gruffudd as Mr Fantastic
When the rumour of Mr Fantastic cameoing in the film got out, many people wondered if it would be John Krasinski or Ioan Gruffudd, who portrayed the role in early ‘2000s Fantastic Four films. So fans were quite ecstatic when they saw Krasinski in the role.
Tom Cruise as Iron Man
Coming to the mother of all rumours of this film, Tom Cruise as Iron Man is the one that has been heavily debated. Apparently, Cruise was never supposed to appear in the film, but the rumour mill made it seem so. Fans are actually believing that THE Tom Cruise shot scenes for the movie, but Marvel decided to leave them on the cutting room floor.
