For many Marvel fans, meeting the mysterious Illuminati was one of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness‘ biggest moments, but as it turns out, none of the cast members were actually on set together at all during production.

Speaking to Esquire in a recent interview, Black Bolt actor Anson Mount revealed that they had to use other body doubles during the shoot and cut together shots that ultimately brought everyone together. No, [Patrick Stewart] was actually not there! He was shooting Picard,” the actor explained.

“That was a very interesting shoot because my role came up in the reshoots. As you can imagine, several of the actors were quite busy. Patrick was not there. Chiwetel [Ejiofor] was not there. [John] Krasinski‘s contract wasn’t even done. He wasn’t there. We had actors playing those roles, knowing that they were going to either be substituting their shots or transplanting faces. I’ve never done anything quite like that, and I was in disbelief of how well it cut together.”

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is now streamable on Disney+.

Elsewhere in entertainment, Julius Onah will be directing Captain America 4, starring Anthony Mackie as the titular hero.
