But it failed to transpire, and talking to Jake Hamilton, the British icon appeared to be oblivious of all the rumors.

I’m sorry to disappoint you. That would have been fun, I guess. It would have led to Lizzie’s involvement with [Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness], but that’s all to come.
