Wong is said to play the lead role in a new Doctor Strange spinoff show that is based on the Strange Academy comic books and set for Disney Plus.
A new rumor from the Marvel Cinematic Universe seems to indicate that a new Doctor Strange spinoff series based on the Strange Academy comic books is heading to Disney Plus, featuring Supreme Wong, the most popular Sorcerer in the world. In addition, the show might even feature a few other beloved MCU characters returning.
Although this is just a rumor, it is said that the new Doctor Strange spinoff series will look inside a school that helps new magic users improve their skills. This appears to be a little more formal and focused on a legitimate academic setting, in contrast to the more intensive training that Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange himself underwent.
Anyone who happens to be looking for a story about a magical school with no bad beginnings may now have something to look forward to.
This rumor is part of a regular info dump that comes from the Marvel Studios Spoilers subreddit and gives information about upcoming projects. The poster, which claims to have “trusted sources,” states that the new series will likely feature Benedict Wong’s most beloved character in a lead role.
America Chavez, played by Xochitl Gomez, who made her acting debut in Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness, will be there with him. This makes sense, especially considering how amazing her Multiverse-jumping abilities were in that movie. The rumor seems even more plausible given that she stayed on to study the mystic arts in the conclusion of Doctor Strange 2.
In addition to America Chavez, the post claims that the series, which is yet to be named but is based on Strange Academy, will also feature Zelma Stanton, who is reportedly set to make her debut in the upcoming Disney Plus series Ironheart.
Although nothing has been confirmed on that front, it has been heavily suggested that not only will the character make an appearance in Ironheart, but that BF for Hire star Regan Aliyah will allegedly take on the role. Another connection makes sense because Zelma is an ally of Doctor Strange in the comics.
Already, the idea of a magical school is definitely appealing. For a story like that, it almost seems natural to include a beloved character like Wong. Over the course of the past few years, he has appeared in a number of Marvel Studios films and television shows.
His role in Shang-Chi and his memorable performance as She-Hulk are still very much in the minds of fans. The actor Wong has even expressed interest in starting his own MCU series. As a result, the stars appear to be aligned quickly.
Again, this is just a rumor that hasn’t even been officially confirmed. It’s just one rumor among many others, including rumors of a World War Hulk movie and the transformation of Thunderbolt Ross, played by Harrison Ford, into Red Hulk.
Even though everything seems plausible, it should be taken with a grain of salt. This is a lot of information to sort through, so drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.
