During a recent episode of The Graham Norton Show, the women of Marvel took the stage and shared some hilarious behind-the-scenes moments from filming their superhero movies. Elizabeth Olsen, who plays Scarlet Witch in the Avengers franchise, revealed a quirky talent that both intrigues and grosses people out – she lacks an opposable thumb. While not exactly a superpower, Olsen admitted that it does make opening champagne a bit challenging. However, her bendy hands definitely make up for it.

Speaking of Scarlet Witch, Olsen’s co-star Jessica Chastain revealed a mischievous side. The two actresses teamed up to play a prank on James McAvoy during the filming of a scene where he was suspended by wires. Just as McAvoy was about to perform his serious acting, they played the Macarena over the speakers and made him do some hilarious magic moves. McAvoy’s reaction started with amusement but quickly turned to discomfort as he realized he was stuck in a harness.

Sophie Turner, who plays Jean Grey in the X-Men series, shared her not-so-super superpower – the ability to sleep anywhere at any time. Her co-stars confirmed that they’ve witnessed her dozing off in the middle of scenes, even in uncomfortable director’s chairs. Turner attributed her ability to her flexibility, which she acquired from her past experience in circus skills.

Tom Hiddleston, best known for his role as Loki, opened up about his journey to becoming part of the Marvel universe. He admitted that there were some roles he turned down before landing the iconic Loki character. Hiddleston also highlighted the secretiveness surrounding the scripts and costumes in the Marvel universe. The actors often have limited access to scripts and only get a glimpse of their costumes during the first fitting. Hiddleston described his Loki costume as “swooshy” with a tail that made him appear larger in stature.

The conversation then shifted to action figures, with the talk show host revealing action figures of the actors on display. The figures closely resembled their real-life counterparts, much to the amusement of the guests. The actors had fun playing with the mini versions of themselves, and the audience couldn’t help but laugh along with them.

The episode also featured a surprise meeting between Timothy Chalamet and Meryl Streep, who had previously worked together. Chalamet shared a funny anecdote about mispronouncing the actor’s last name when they first met, and it has now become a running joke in his family. It seems Streep’s presence has a transformative effect on the set, making everyone on their best behavior and setting up cameras quickly.

Overall, this episode of The Graham Norton Show was filled with laughter, behind-the-scenes stories, and a glimpse into the lighter side of the Marvel and Hollywood world. The chemistry between the guests and the host made for an entertaining and lively conversation, leaving fans excited for future episodes of the popular talk show.
