Elizabeth Olsen confirms Daniel Craig was meant to be in Doctor Strange 2

Elizabeth Olsen confirmed that Daniel Craig was set to play Balder the Brave.

Elizabeth Olsen has confirmed Daniel Craig was supposed to appear in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

The 34-year-old actress, who plays Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch in the Marvel franchise, confirmed rumours that the James Bond actor was set to appear as Balder the Brave in the 2022 movie.

“Yes, that’s what I thought was going to happen,” Olsen told host Josh Horowitz about the cameo on the Happy Sad Confused podcast. “I saw the art. They made a costume. They had a design.”

Horowitz then revealed that when he asked Craig about it recently, the actor insisted he had no idea what he was talking about.

“Well shoot, I should have done that. I’m so bad at this thing, I’m like an open book, it’s horrible,” Olsen replied.

The WandaVision star explained that the star-studded line-up of superheroes in the Illuminati sequence “changed a lot” during production and insisted that she didn’t lie when she denied shooting scenes with John Krasinski as Fantastic Four’s Reed Richards.

“I didn’t shoot with him but I knew he was going to be in it, but he wasn’t there when I was there,” she shared.

Elsewhere in the interview, Olsen joked that she gave up reading new drafts of the script because they kept changing so often.

“There’s a point in making the movie where I just stopped reading drafts,” she laughed. “I was just like, ‘This is going to change again. Just keep me posted with the information I need and you guys fill in the blanks that you need. But I’ll just keep (in) my lane.’ That one was a wild ride.”
