During the livestream launch, there were fans' questions given to the cast. There were fan questions that the cast had to answer. To their surprise, there were some celebrities who also gave their questions. The last three fans were the most epic part of the livestream. The first of the last three were from ‘Tom H' from the UK. As it turns out it is Loki actor Tom Hiddleston. His question was directed to Bettany, "When you last saw Vision in Infinity War, he was no longer living, but now he's alive, I was just wondering, do you think that's more of a Loki thing?" Bettany replied, "It's true, I'm totally stealing your thunder, Tom. I'm so sorry about that. I thought the whole thing worked better with me anyway."
The next question was from ‘Anthony M', which turns out to be The Falcon actor Anthony Mackie. The actor proceeded to say that he is excited for WandaVision because the two were his favorite Avenger, and continued to ask, "What makes me your favorite Avenger?" Bettany replied, "[What I love] about your character is his humility, the fact that he never sucks the air out of the room." Olsen replied, "I do have to say that I love your one-offs, you're very good at coming up with them on the spot and they usually make the picture, that I do love about you, Mackie. But you're not in this one so sit down."
The last question came from ‘Ben' from London who was hiding his face at first and revealed after finishing his question. It turns out to be Benedict Cumberbatch, the actor for the titular character of Doctor Strange. His question was, "Can you give me a hint about what's going on here, it looks like you are jumping through time, but we just did that. So, yeah?" Olsen replied, "I'm a very powerful person." Hahn replied, "I would think it's the newbie in this world, and you as someone who was in it for a while would know that we're not allowed to talk about it."
