‘Would like to hang out with the X-Men’: Benedict Wong Wants To Team Up With Nightcrawler For a Wong Spinoff

Benedict Wong Wants To Team Up With Nightcrawler For a Wong Spinoff

Benedict Wong’s completely serious-looking character in the MCU, literally named Wong, has slowly risen to the top of characters that fans have come to adore over the years. Wong first made his debut as Wong in the 2016 movie called Doctor Strange, in which his character is the Sorcerer Supreme of the Masters of the Mystic Arts.

The love for Benedict Wong is very apparent in the MCU itself too, he’s shown up in a majority of the Phase 4 projects, and he plans on showing up for more! The Sorcerer Supreme of the MCU has recently expressed a desire to see some certain Marvel characters crossover with his, and they’re great choices.

Benedict Wong Would Love To Have Nick Fury And Nightcrawler Around

Benedict Wong was already a pretty successful actor even before making an appearance in the MCU. The Manchester-born British actor has starred in numerous movies and TV shows over the years, these include Prometheus, Marco Polo, The Martian, and so on.

You get what we mean, he’s already been a big-time hotshot in Hollywood before making his first steps into the MCU as the Sorcerer Supreme of the Mystic Arts.

Just like every Marvel fan in the world, we all love crossovers, and Wong is also one of us. The 51-year-old actor recently spoke to JOE about two certain characters in the Marvel Universe that he’d like to have a crossover with-

“Oh wow… I’d love to work with the Samuel L. Jackson… which other worlds are we… I mean, if ever the X-Men are around, I’d like to hang out with the X-Men… I’m a big Marvel comic fan back in the day and obviously, I always remembered the Secret Wars, where everybody was involved… Who else? X-Force, Nightcrawler, all of those. What I love about this and I thank the MCU… [I have] portal world travel… so the more, the merrier.”

Nick Fury and Wong already seem like a perfect match since both of them take things very seriously while also maintaining a certain sense of humor. As for Nightcrawler, the mutant’s playful personality probably won’t bode too well with Wong in the MCU, but they might share a good chuckle once in a while.

Benedict Wong Wants To Fully Expand His Character In The MCU

Franchises usually capitalise on the opportunity of expanding a character’s scope further if their audience seems to dig said character a lot. And it would only make sense for Benedict Wong’s character to receive the same treatment.

The Marco Polo star is pretty interested in the idea of a solo movie for Wong as he discusses about one in his latest interview with The Hollywood Reporter-

“You know, a lot of people have said that. Yeah, I could certainly think of some ideas. But hey, it’s not for me to push that. If you ever see anyone, send the question over there. I mean, look, I love playing this role, and I think there’s so much more scope that we could go into with a series, yeah.”

It’s a no-brainer that he’s loving his role as Wong, don’t we all? It’s pretty much a yes from Wong’s side about a solo movie for the character, and Marvel has to play its cards quickly if they want to cash in on some big bucks with Wong’s popularity!

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is currently available for streaming on Disney+.
