I don't exactly know what to think of this scoop, but 'Shannon' has alerted us to a rumor sent over to Cinescape claiming that Tom Cruise is on the top of the list for people to play the superhero.

Tom Cruise is Iron Man?

According to, TOM CRUISE is the frontrunner for the role of IRON MAN in Marvel's new live-action film on the comic. Cruise has a relationship with Paramount, who are doing the film, so it makes sense that he'd in the mix.

Cruise has always been a favourite to play Tony Stark in the movie - telling the media numerous times that he loves the character - telling Empire Magazine in 2004 that "He's a fascinating character, but we've got to figure out how it's going to work".

Cruise has a pretty clear schedule - he's rumored to be involved in a "Mission : Impossible 4" and is attached to a couple of films ("The Few", "I Married a Witch") - at the moment, so he may be keeping it free for IRON MAN.

Iron Man is the alter ego of billionaire industrialist Tony Stark, who must wear an armoured breastplate to protect his injured heart.

So now time for some questions: How valid is this scoop? Could Tom Cruise pull off Iron Man? Would the fans of the franchise even give him a chance? We could have another Keaton-Batman issue here. Though I know Cruise can do just about anything on screen, isn't he a couple years too old now for the part?

Questions, questions, questions and, at the moment, no answers.

Iron Man opens to theatres on May 2, 2008.

Stay tuned for updates.
