Benedict Wong being cast as Wong was a perfect move for Marvel. Even better than that is how Wong has become Doctor Strange’s mentor, with him delivering a drill sergeant vibe to the character. Now, he could be set for his own solo series.
Rumors are unfurling of the beloved character finally getting the solo spin-off many had been dreaming of since he first debuted in 2016. Out of almost nowhere, Wong saw a massive rise in popularity, likely a result of scene-stealing performances in both Avengers: Infinity War and Spider-Man: No Way Home.
The speculation sees Wong headline a Strange Academy series, with Xochitl Gomez who debuted in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Understandably, Wong’s army of dedicated soldiers is ecstatic with the news, as the disco ball nears the dance floor.
