Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is an upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe movie that will tell about the new adventures of Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) as he faces a bigger multiverse problem, after previously helping Peter Parker in Spider-man: No Way Home. . The movie, which is directed by Sam Raimi, is predicted to feature various Marvel characters, from the main characters to the multiverse variants.
Besides Cumberbatch, the second Doctor Strange movie also stars Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Rachel McAdams as Dr. Christine Palmer, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Karl Mordo, Xochitl Gomez as America Chavez, and Benedict Wong as Wong. Based on what has been seen in the remake trailer, this movie is also certain to present many variants of the main character. And now, a souvenir or toy product from the movie has revealed a variant of Wong.
As can be seen in the image above, apart from the main Doctor Strange and Defender Strange variants of the main Doctor Strange, it turns out that there is also a “Defender Wong”. This product, which is a key chain from Monogram International, has revealed the figure of the Defender Wong variant, which looks more or less the same as the main version, where the only difference lies in the Defender Wong costume which is darker in color.
In the Marvel Cinematic Universe itself, Wong’s character has recently been getting a lot of attention from fans, after he was confirmed as the new Sorcerer Supreme to replace Doctor Strange after Thanos’ snap in Avengers: Infinity Wars. In addition, not a few fans are also speculating that Wong’s character will play a very important role in the Multiverse of Madness movie , where there is a possibility that he will die to make Strange’s story more interesting.
If this variant of Defender Wong will actually appear in the movie, it makes sense that one of these Wong variants will be told to die. Because so far there is no other reason that makes more sense than that.

Some time ago, Campbell had hinted at his involvement in the movie, which was produced by his best friend. As one of the actors who quite often makes cameos in Raimi’s movies, it’s not surprising that he actually appears in Doctor Strange 2
