The recently released trailer for Marvel Studios’ Deadpool & Wolverine, starring Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman as Deadpool and Wolverine, has been met with several Easter eggs by die-hard comic book and movie fans.

One of the most exciting things fans noticed was the MCU sorcerer towards the end of the trailer. In the final shot of the trailer, the two superheroes can be seen jumping off a window into a void. It is then revealed that the two of them are jumping through a magic portal pointing toward the presence of the MCU sorcerer in the movie.

The plot of the movie has been kept tightly under wraps, but eagle-eyed fans have already had discussions and shared their opinions on who could be the one to make a cameo in Deadpool & Wolverine. They noted that it could be either Wong or Doctor Strange, and the majority of them leaned toward Wong.

A user wrote on X, ‘Who do you think opened up the portal for Deadpool and Wolverine? My guess is Wong’. While another user wrote, ‘Imagine Wong and Strange inviting Deadpool & Wolverine to the final battle in Avengers Endgame?’ An excited fan commented, ‘Wong Cinematic Universe is back’ with other people adding that they think it’s Wong too.


Wong is the current Sorcerer Supreme of the Masters of the Mystic Arts and is played by Benedict Wong in the MCU. Earlier, while speaking to the Radio Times, when the actor was asked about his future in the MCU, he said that at some point in the future, he could return. He added,

“I think now that he is Sorcerer Supreme, there’s so much scope and leadership that he has now, and we’ll see where he goes.”

The actor added that one will never know; maybe Strange is the sidekick now. Wong’s comment on his character’s return to the MCU could have been a hint for his cameo in Deadpool & Wolverine, but nothing can be said now.

Benedict Wong shares his reaction to the Wong Cinematic Universe

In his conversation with in 2022, the actor was asked about his initial reaction when Marvel President Kevin Feige dubbed the MCU the Wong Cinematic Universe. He said,

“I’ve got the email; I’m seriously considering getting it as a wallpaper. No, I told the Internet, and now it’s everywhere. But that’s really kind of him to say. For me, I’m just like an overexcited puppy when I get a call from him, you know? Like, ‘hey, would you like to be in X?’ And that comes from me, just personally, being such a Marvel fan.”

Benedict Wong added that while he was growing up, reading Spider-Man comics, and then finding himself in the world where a character named Wong, he was just enjoying playing the role. He mentioned that he is going to see where the role takes him, and in every single kind of project that the studios invite him to, it pulls away another layer of the onion.
