“Doctor Strange’s” Wong Will Be ‘More of a Drill Sergeant’ Than a Manservant

Wong will appear in Marvel Studios’ “Doctor Strange,” but the character won’t be ripped straight from the comics. “The Martian” star Benedict Wong, who plays Wong in the film, revealed that “Doctor Strange” will take a new approach to the character.

“I’m certainly not going to be the tea-making manservant,” Wong told Den of Geek. “We’re heading in a different direction. He’s more of a drill sergeant.”

“There isn’t any martial arts for Wong in ‘Doctor Strange,’ actually. He’s more of a drill sergeant to Kamar-Taj. He’s one of the masters of sorcery.”

In the comics, Wong acts as Strange’s vastly skilled and versatile sidekick, filling such duties as assisting in occult matters, performing martial arts, tending to Strange’s affairs and watching over Strange’s body while the Sorcerer Supreme astral projects. However, it seems as though the film has a few other ideas in mind for the character.

Directed by Scott Derrickson and starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton, Chiwitel Ejiofor and more, “Doctor Strange” opens on November 4, 2016.
