Benedict Wong has revealed he'd love to share more screen time with Jacob Batalon in future Marvel Cinematic Universe movies.
The 50-year-old British actor returns as Sorcerer Supreme Wong in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, but he's keen to possibly chalk up a solo outing for the character.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness in in IMAX and cinemas from 5 May.
TOM BEASLEY: I wanted to ask because, obviously, there's yourself and Benedict. And then you now have another magic wielder in the equation with Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda. Is there a rivalry between you as actors over who looks the coolest when you're doing the magic scenes?
BENEDICT WONG: No. You know, I think everybody has their own special brand of magic, you know? Yeah, I think everyone's got their own kind of sorcery or wave teacher, you know. Mine's a mixture of my kind of kung fu school days, you know?
I think I first developed it in "Infinity War." So I was doing this. And I kept telling the VFX guy, like, I'm doing it now. I'm doing it now. And so it's amazing. You know, you always got to buy him a drink.
TOM BEASLEY: I think we all want to see a Wong solo series or movie. Is that something that you think is on the cards?
BENEDICT WONG: 68. Thank you.
TOM BEASLEY: [LAUGHS]
BENEDICT WONG: Thank you so much. I would love that. You know, I like the idea of-- I was talking to Ned-- his name has just escaped me-- from "No Way Home." Jacob. And he can now open a portal. And I said, we should do the sorcerer and the apprentice. So, you know, who knows?
