As audiences continue to ponder the future of both actors’ franchises, Elizabeth Olsen shares how she made it through the film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness John Krasinski lie detector. The Marvel Cinematic Universe sequel picked up the thread of WandaVisionwhich ended with Olsen’s titular character in possession of the Darkhold, and Spider-Man: No Way Homewhose wizard Benedict Cumberbatch struggled for breaking open the multiverse. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness saw Strange take on the Scarlet Witch as she hunted America Chavez to use her multiverse jumping skills to reunite with her sons in an alternate universe.
As the film took its characters through a variety of universes, new and alternate versions of beloved MCU heroes emerged, including Lashana Lynch’s Captain Marvel, Hayley Atwell’s Captain Carter, and Anson Mount’s Black Bolt. Two of ‘s most speculated and anticipated cameos Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of MadnessIlluminati were Patrick Stewart’s Professor X, who was teased in trailers, and John Krasinski’s Mister Fantastic, a casting fans had been asking Marvel to make happen for years. Krasinski’s appearance was largely kept a secret until the film’s release, even though almost one star was pressed to reveal the truth early on.
In a recent interview with VarietyElizabeth Olsen looked back on her recent history with the MCU, including: Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. When asked about the lie detector test, in which she successfully kept John Krasinski’s cameo a secret, the Wanda actor shared how she passed the test. See what Olsen explained below:
I was very confused when she asked me those questions. I also had a terrible cold while pushing so I feel like I didn’t have a filter because I was so sick. I didn’t have COVID, but I was sick for 14 days and it was great to be press sick. You just don’t care! But I had never met John Krasinski either. I didn’t lie! We filmed it separately. I was there. I don’t even know if they realized he was doing it.
How John Krasinski’s Mr. Fantastic Death was filmed
Krasinski’s appearance in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness proved to be short-lived for MCU fans, as Wanda quickly tore him apart during her assault on the Illuminati headquarters. Such large-scale productions as the Doctor Strange sequels sometimes see actors who don’t really share scenes, be it scheduling conflicts for one, or in the case of the MCU movie, COVID protocols can prevent stars from being together. Given the majority of Wanda and Mr. fantastic in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness consisted of back-and-forth shots with the other’s back in front of the camera, it makes sense that Olsen could pass the lie detector test regarding Krasinski’s well-guarded cameo.
Though he met his end in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madnessmany MCU fans hope Krasinski returns as Mr. Fantastic for the in-development Fantastic four movie. The lack of casting announcements at this year’s D23 Expo caused some confusion, as rumors circulated ahead of the event that Krasinski would appear before the Marvel panel to confirm his return, but with director Matt Shakman not was confirmed just before D23, stating that Kevin Feige wants input from his director on casting decisions. While the public awaits Krasinski’s possible return, they can watch his MCU debut with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness streaming now on Disney+.
