Because Asim Chaudhry also has about three lines in the new Wonder Woman 1984 movie, courtesy of it having been filmed in London. He is a workmate of Barbara Minerva and Diana Prince at the museum of antiquities where they work and –  minor spoilers – he is the first to use the Dreamstone to grant himself a wish. The wish is that he has a coffee. Which he then gets.

Of course, when the wishlist then goes global, people in the world start doing everything, And they start wishing for huge, amazing, world-altering changes. Which means Asim's character must be wondering why it just doesn't work for him. And then he suddenly realises that maybe just maybe, he wasted his one big chance on a cup of coffee. Might be quite the downer. Why not catch up on some of his best bits?
