Tom Cruise allegedly turned down an offer to play a villain role in Gal Gadot’s hit superhero movie Wonder Woman.
Tom Cruise was reportedly the first choice to play the role that went to Pedro Pascal in Wonder Woman, according to National Enquirer. However, one should take the report with a grain of salt because there is no evidence supporting the claim.
Tom Cruise turned down Wonder Woman villain role rumor
Tom Cruise starred in various hit movies like Mission Impossible, Jack Reacher, Top Gun, and more. National Enquirer claimed that the Wonder Woman‘s team approached him to play a villain in Gal Gadot’s movie. However, he allegedly turned it down, saying that he wanted a hero role.
Cruise was allegedly sorry for Gadot and director Patty Jenkins, but that was his decision.
Gossip Cop debunked the report. The outlet noted that Tom Cruise already had a lot on his plate at the time when the negotiation for a role for Wonder Woman would have been happening.
The rumor-debunking site stressed that Cruise had no time available for taking another role, let alone as secondary lead for a superhero flick. Cruise had three Mission Impossible movies and Top Gun film from 2017 through 2019.
Also, it is very unlikely that Cruise would give up his passion projects for a genre that is totally unrelated to what he normally does.
Gossip Cop also questioned the legitimacy of the tabloid’s “Hollywood insider.” The outlet added that it wasn’t surprising as the outlet has published plenty of bogus “industry insider” stories in the past.
Moreover, with National Enquirer‘s reputation for publishing articles based on the statements of its undependable sources, this could be another groundless claim waiting to be debunked. So, avid hoping to see Cruise in a superhero movie should not get their hopes up.
Tom’s other rumors
Meanwhile, Globe published a report claiming that Tom Cruise hired a cruise ship in Norway where the cast and crew could stay while they film the movie. He reportedly dropped a whopping $675,000 to avoid further delay.
However, one should take the report with a grain of salt because the report did not even include the model of the ship Cruise rented. Also, renting a cruise ship does not guarantee that they are safe from the COVID-19 virus.
There were 53 people who tested positive from COVID-19 from two voyages. Thirty-seven were among the crew and 16 were passengers, according to the Norwegian Institute of Public Health report read per Daily Mail.
