When Doctor Strange's man-servant appears in this November's Doctor Strange, he will be very different than he is in the comic books according to actor Benedict Wong. In an interview with Den of Geek, the Martian actor says that the role was taken "in a different direction."
“I’m certainly not going to be the tea-making manservant. We’re heading in a different direction. He’s more of a drill sergeant," said Wong. "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.”
When asked about the possibility of reprising his role in other Marvel Studios film subsequent to Doctor Strange, the 44-year-old British actor seemed excited.
"That would be nice!" replied the actor. "No, we’ll start off with the first one. I’m just happy nearly completing in Doctor Strange. I’m very excited to see what happens.”
Doctor Strange is scheduled to open in theaters November 4.
