Actor Benedict Wong did not rule out the opportunity for the character Wong he played in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) get a spin-off.
“I’ve been asked this a million times. I could have asked them [penggemar] to sign the petition,” joked Benedict Wong to VarietyMonday (9/5) US time.
While appearing in Avengers: Infinity War, Wong’s character leaves Doctor Strange, Tony Stark, and Bruce Banner while battling Thanos’ children in New York.
Wong crosses using the portal to the Sanctum Sanctorum to protect him from the dangers of Thanos’ arrival.
Benedict Wong said a five-year hiatus when the events blip happening in the timeline of the two Avengers movies happening could be an interesting spinoff idea for Wong’s character.
“We didn’t see him for five years when he passed through the portal. So, we could fill in some storylines there,” said Benedict Wong.
“Let’s wait and see what Marvel will do.”
In addition, Benedict Wong also revealed the genre of film he wants to do for the MCU films in the future.
“Maybe it’s more of an action film like the Hong Kong action genre type. I wanted to do something like John Woo’s style of film,” he replied.
Benedict Wong returns as Wong in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. He has risen to the rank of Sorcerer Supreme since the Spider-Man: No Way Home films.
In Doctor Strange 2, Wong again works with Doctor Strange to stop the main enemy’s evil intentions.
In addition to Benedict Wong, Benedict Cumberbatch is returning to star in the film as Doctor Strange alongside Rachel McAdams as Christine Palmer, Benedict Wong as Wong, and Chiwetel Ejiofor as Karl Mordo.
In addition, the sequel to Doctor Strange (2016) also features Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda aka Scarlet Witch, and Xochitl Gomez as America Chavez.
