In the MCU, Benedict Wong portrays a character named Wong. Wong made his film debut in Doctor Strange before making a second appearance in Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame.
However, it seems like Wong is everywhere now that MCU phase 4 has started. He made his debut in Spider Man: No Way Home, followed by appearances in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, and most recently She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.
Being the one character that unites all of these motion pictures and television shows, it appears that Wong is playing a similar function in phase 4 of the MCU as Nick Fury did in phase 1 under the direction of Samuel Jackson.
In addition, a number of the projects that Wong has been a part of have featured newcomers. For example, in Shang Chi, the entire cast was brand-new; in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Xochitl Gomez made her debut; and most recently, Tatiana Maslany made her debut in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.
People have begun to speculate that Wong may be the actor tasked with orienting new actors to the MCU and teaching them the ropes as a result of this.
In an interview with THR, Wong addressed the duty he has taken on. The way he put it was as follows:
“Yeah, it’s funny, because I remember that with Simu. When they were filming, I think when they saw me arrive, they finally realized that they were in a Marvel film. I kind of put my wax seal of approval. I mean, obviously, what can I do but say, ‘Welcome to the MCU’…And whatever learning curves and curveballs that I can add or any sort of advice, I’m always there. Especially with Xochitl as well, being just a very wide-eyed rabbit in the headlights. I think it’s kind of a duty really, being a member of a big ensemble company, to steady people and reassure them.”
Fans of Wong Ha are not upset because he appeared in practically all phase 4 productions and had excellent roles.
