Marvel Studios Casts THE MARTIAN Star As 'Wong' In DOCTOR STRANGE

Well, this is unexpected! Most of us had assumed that Marvel would avoid including Wong in Doctor Strange due to an Asian man being portrayed as a manservant to a rich white doctor in 2016 is all sorts of f***ed up, but they've found an actor for the role, and you can get more details here...

Calling Wong a fan-favourite character might be a stretch, but a lot of people would have been disappointed if he'd been left out of Doctor Strange. It's a good job then that The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Benedict Wong (The Martian) is set to take on the role of the Sorcerer Supreme's manservant and best friend. While details about this version of the character haven't been revealed, you have to believe that we'll be getting a contemporary version, and not the racist sterotype seen in many of the character's earliest adventures (he knows kung-fu!). Doctor Strange: The Oath - which seems to have inspired quite a bit of this movie so far - is a good place to look for an example of how great seeing Wong on screen could be, and Wong - that's confusing - joins a cast which also includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Rachel McAdams, Tilda Swinton, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Mads Mikkelsen. He's also starred in Netflix's Marco Polo, Prometheus, and Kick-Ass 2.
