Tom Holland might be a face Spider-Man: There is no room for homeBut fans are celebrating Benedict Wong’s Marvel Cinematic Universe character Wong as the film’s breakout star. He only has a small part in There is no place for home, although we find out that Wong has become the new Supreme Wizard in the five years since Blip caused Dr. Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) to cease to exist. Wong is also the only person against Stephen Strange casting a spell to make the world forget that Peter Parker is Spider-Man. Fans are now celebrating Wong’s growing role in the MCU, calling him one of the most prominent characters Spider-Man: There is no room for home.
Seeing how Peter Parker and Doctor Strange essentially unlocked the multiverse in Spider-Man: There is no room for homeWong was proven right in his assessment of the dangers created by the spell. Fans immediately embraced this aspect of Wong, cheering him on as Spider-Man: No Way Home scored the third biggest global opening ever. Of course, had the spell not gone wrong, we wouldn’t have gotten the lucrative royalties of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, two of the movie’s highlights.
The second trailer for Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings It included a quick scene of Wong fighting abomination in A fight clubSquare style. He also had a slightly extended role in the actual movie, appearing in a post-credits scene with Shang-Chi (Simu Liu), Katy (Awkwafina), Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), and Captain Marvel (Brie Larson). The group is shown studying the Ten Rings that Shang Zhi has confiscated from his father Wennu. Before the post-credits scene ends, Wong tells Shang-Chi and Katy to prepare for the wild journey they are about to embark on, because becoming a hero in the MCU is no small task.
There are even invitations for Wong to star in his own Disney+ series. Fans X 2019 star Doctor Strange asked what the Wong series would look like, forcing him to think about the project himself. “I’m spoiled for choice. I guess training other magicians?” He said. “It’s definitely a load of weapons, yet to be discovered, powers and what we can do. I think Wong can go ahead and settle the job somewhat, perhaps?”

Who has money on an advertisement for the Wong series in the next few years?
I predicted at SJU a few weeks ago that Wong would eventually get the Disney+ show and he still thinks so. It’s showing a ton and will allow them to expand into this magical, MCU’s Doctor Strange segment without Cumberbatch. I bet this will happen in the next couple of years. https://t.co/U431fGVtsB
