Character Summary: Wong
There’s a lot of hype and interest going on right now with the Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness film, set to be released in the upcoming weeks, but it is important that we get familiar with some of the characters that are going to play a big role in this movie. And one of them is Doctor Stranger’s assistant and second in command, Wong.
Who is Wong? And what is his role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? We’ll tell you everything you need to know right now.
Wong is the Sorcerer Supreme and protector of the New York Sanctum. His first appearance is in the first Doctor Strange movie and he assists Stephen Strange in his studies so he can also become a Sorcerer Supreme. After they, along with the sacrifice of the Ancient One, defeated Dormammu at the end of the first movie, Wong joins Strange in their quest to protect the New York Sanctum.
He shows up again during Avengers: Infinity War and him and Strange join Iron Man when they were attacked by Thanos’ Black Order. After Strange disappears because of Thanos’ snap, Wong stays as the one in charge of protecting the New York Sanctum and he is the one that teleports the Avengers and the rest of their allies in the Avengers: Endgame epic battle against the Mad Titan.
During the Shang-Chi movie, Wong was involved in the Golden Daggers Club in China and had a confrontation with the famous Hulk villain, the Abomination, which resulted in one of the highlights of the film. He also has an appearance in Spider-Man: No Way Home, explaining to Peter that Stephen is no longer Sorcerer Supreme due to the blip and they eventually cause the events that lead to the film’s main plot with the universes colliding.
Personality wise, Wong has proven to be quite a stoic and serious man and he is 100% committed to fulfill his duties, which is something that definitely makes a very stark contrast to Strange’s more lighthearted approach to things in many different moments. He is also one of the Ancient One’s best students and one of the best when it comes to the use of the Mystic Arts, which is something worth taking into account.
