Elizabeth Olsen has claimed she has never met any of them Doctor Strange 2 co-stars despite sharing the screen with him.
The actor who plays Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch in the Multiverse of MadnessShe took part in an interview where she performed a lie detector test.
At one point, she’s shown a photo of an actor appearing as one of the surprise cameos in the film – but leaving a contingent of Mavel fans confused after she adamantly said they’d never met in real life.
*Spoilers to follow – you have been warned*
At one stage in the film, as hinted at in the trailer, Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) encounters a secret society known as the Illuminati.
In the comic series, this group consists of a variety of different characters who band together to work together behind the scenes. One such character appearing in the film is Mr. Fantastic, played by The office and A quiet place StarJohn Krasinski.
His appearance in the film is short-lived as he is killed by Olsen’s character. However, when she was shown a photo of him vanity fairShe revealed she had never met him – and the lie detector said she was telling the truth.
When asked if “this man is the smartest man alive,” she laughed and replied, “No! I would never assume that an actor is the smartest man alive.”
She then added: “I don’t know him.” When vanity fair asked her if she definitely didn’t know Krasinski, she said, “I don’t think so. No, I never met him. I have never met this man. I met his wife.”
Krasinski is married to Emily Blunt.
Olsen seems to have had luck with the question. First, she seems to have been trying to keep the secret of Krasinski’s presence in the film, which remained a secret until its release earlier this month.

Second, Olsen himself told the story CinemaBlend that thanks to “movie magic” she didn’t meet any of the actors who played Illuminati members. It is likely that Krasinski filmed his scenes elsewhere, meaning that despite appearing in the same scene together, he would have had no reason to meet Olsen.
That hasn’t stopped fans from expressing their confusion that Olsen and Krasinski never met.
In The IndependentIn his own interview with Olsen, the actor has challenged those who “throw Marvel under the bus,” while also acknowledging that “the magic of the Marvel movie is lost to me now.”
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is in cinemas now.
