After having been rumored for the role long before it looked like a legitimate possibility, Tom Cruise is apparently back in the running to play the lead, Tony Stark, in Jon Favreau's comic book adaptation, Iron Man.
Rumors have resurfaced that the couch-jumping Scientologist is again mulling a star turn as "Iron Man." Jon Favreau just signed to develop and direct the flick, to be produced by Marvel Comics' new movie arm, about a billionaire industrialist who fights crime in a super-powered suit.
Tom Cruise already hurt the Mission: Impossible 3 box office because of his crazy antics, so I find it hard to believe a seemingly sane man like Favreau would bring him on-board this project. The only advantage I could see to using Cruise is that the production could save a lot of money on costumes, since he probably already owns a few specially-designed power suits. Like the suit he uses to communicate with Xenu, and the suit he uses to impregnate women without have to touch their "gross holes." He loves that suit.
