The Martian and streaming Netflix series Marco Polo actor has just been cast to star alongside Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Tilda Swinton, Rachel McAdams, Michael Stuhlbarg, Scott Adkins, Amy Landecker and Mads Mikkelsen in the upcoming “Phase Three” superhero film. Word was brought officially from the Hollywood Reporter that Wong will be playing the role of a character also named Wong.
Known in the earliest days of the comics as the ‘faithful manservant’ of Doctor Strange, Wong is — in a perhaps more dignified title — the loyal assistant and adviser to Strange in the mystic arts.
Directed by Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Deliver Us From Evil) and boasting a script by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus, Passengers), Doctor Strange is slated for theater release on November 4, 2016.
