I think we can all agree that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is one of the most theory-driven Marvel films we've had in quite a while and the amount of fan theories and rumors surrounding the Benedict Cumberbatch and Elizabeth Olsen team-up project is insane, to say the least. Now, one crazy rumor is spreading like wildfire across social media and it concerns a certain actor who almost played an iconic Marvel superhero.
An alleged end credits crawl recently "leaked" online and it features a jaw-dropping list of actors who are rumored to be involved in the project, including Don't Look Up star Leonardo DiCaprio who is said to be playing a variant Spider-Man. To those unaware, Leo was set to star in James Cameron's scrapped Spidey film from the late '90s, a project that would later spawn Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy starring Tobey Maguire.
Other actors included in the list are Hugh Jackman, Chris Evans, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Sophie Turner, Jessica Alba, Ben Stiller, Ben Affleck, and Henry Cavill. Check it out here:

The ensemble of stars included in the said list is pretty darn impressive but at the same time sounds a little too suspicious, even for a project that is said to feature the largest collection of characters of any Marvel film to date. When you think about it though, the entire multiverse concept seemingly makes anything possible but I guess we'll just have to wait and see if the rumored cameos actually happen.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness hits cinemas on May 6, 2022.
