Among those theories is that Dottie’s identity could connect to the MCU Squadron Supreme, a newer theory that Caulfield learned about from Looper. Another popular piece of conjecture wonders if she’s really Mephisto. One thing’s for certain: No matter what larger connections Dottie may have to the MCU, Caulfield can’t talk about it. Instead, the actor can only sit back and enjoy taking it all in.
“I’m just watching it because I can’t say anything. I can’t confirm. I can’t deny. I can’t really acknowledge,” Caulfield says. “I just kind of go, ‘Oh, okay.'”
In a parallel universe sort of way, Caulfield says the rumblings about who Dottie might really be has extended beyond the screen to her identity as an actor on the set.
“I’m used to this sort of, ‘I’m not really what I appear to be,’ because even when paparazzi leaked photos of me onset and [I had] a mask on, they thought I was Scarlett Johansson or they thought I was Lady Gaga,” Caulfield tells Looper. “They thought I was anybody, so I’ve literally kind of been anonymous and non-anonymous at the same time… That’s definitely never happened before, so I find it super fun. It’s really interesting.”
