Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness left our screens with the Kamar-Taj being under repair. A character who was introduced in the movie, America Chavez, was seen training along with the surviving sorcerers under the guidance of the current Sorcerer Supreme, Wong.
The movie ended with Doctor Strange following Clea, A sorceress, into the Dark Dimension to help fix the “incursion” he had caused. Thanks to the cliffhanger mid-credit scene, we know that Multiverse of Madness isn’t the last that we saw of Stephen Strange. However, what about the Sorcerer Supreme? If a new report is to be believed, Wong is finally getting his own spotlight and the spotlight will also shine a light on the fifth Avengers film, The Kang Dynasty.

Reddit’s r/MarvelStudiosSpoilers has once again brought quite a few reports for the upcoming MCU projects with “Tales From The Mod Queue.” According to the subreddit, the reports come directly from their trusted sources.
According to the recent Tales From The Mod Queue, Wong, who is played by Benedict Wong, will be getting a Disney+ series sometime in the future. The supposed series is said to be inspired by one of the Marvel Comics – Strange Academy. Xochitl Gomez, who made her MCU debut with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness as America Chavez, is also said to be a part of the reported series.
Strange Academy is the name of the school created by Doctor Strange who becomes the Sorcerer Supreme in Marvel Comics. The special school was made to train the new and younger sorcerers in the arts of magic. This means that in the rumored series, America Chavez could be one of the students of the Academy, with Wong leading the school, perhaps as the headmaster. Since the series is said to be focusing on Wong, Doctor Strange’s appearance might be limited to the Acadamy’s name or a few cameos.
In another interesting report given by The Cosmic Circus, the series is an important story that will tie into Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and will also tie into other parts of the MCU, magic aside.
“Strange Academy is meant to be one of the more important tie-in stories leading into The Kang Dynasty, as it will also tie into multiple aspects of the MCU aside from the supernatural.”
This means that the Strange Academy-based show is going to be incorporated into the bigger picture for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If the report is true, fans can expect the series to be released sometime before May 02, 2025, before the release of The Kang Dynasty. According to another report, the third installment of the Doctor Strange series is supposedly being fast-tracked by Marvel Studios. Insider Jason Kane stated that the movie is being hurried to release before The Kang Dynasty.

A Character to be Expected in the Series
According to Tales From The Mod Queue, Zelma Stanton will also be seen in the Wong-centric series. Zelma is a magic user and a librarian who works for Doctor Strange, eventually becoming his apprentice. The character is all set to appear in the Disney+ series Ironheart.
Since Zelma already has her connection to Stephen Strange, the report might not be too off in suggesting that she shows up in the Strange Academy-based show as a student. Photos from the sets of Ironheart confirm that Zelma is indeed a part of the show thanks to the photos showing a bookstore. The bookstore is called “Stanton’s Sweets, Reads, & More.” Regan Aliyah is confirmed to be a part of Ironheart and is rumored to be playing the character.
Owing to all these reports, it does look like magic has a strong hold on the upcoming phases of MCU. We can’t wait to see what Marvel has planned for the fans!
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is available to stream on Disney+ and Ironheart will be released on Disney+ in the Fall of 2023.
