She-Hulk Reveals Wong To Appear In Another Show?

The She-Hulk: Attorney at Law Season 1 finale could hint that Benedict Wong will be showing up in more Disney+ Marvel series.

In the She-Hulk: Attorney at Law Season 1 finale, Benedict Wong once again appears as his signature Marvel character and drops a big hint that he’ll be returning soon in another Disney+ series. As he’s liberating Emil Blonsky (Tim Roth) from prison, the man once known as the Abomination comments that Wong took a while to show up. After Wong apologizes, Blonsky says, “You got sucked into another show, dintcha?”

Wong smiles, nods, and answers, “We really are living in an era of peak TV.”

The She-Hulk mid-credits scene lets us know not only that other Marvel characters like Wong and Blonsky are able to get in on the fourth wall breaking in the series, but that the Sorcerer Supreme is on his way back to the small screen. The question then remains exactly which show will benefit from the head of Kamar-taj. From what we know of the Marvel shows officially on the way, the most likely series would be Ironheart.

While Riri Williams, the eponymous hero of Ironheart, is much more on the tech side of the superhero world, recent reports suggest in her series she’ll be facing some serious mystical threats. In August photos surfaced from the set of Ironheart including Anthony Ramos (In the Heights) seemingly dressed as the mystic villain The Hood.

And if The Hood isn’t enough of a heavy hitter to get the Sorcerer Supreme to make the jump from She-Hulk to Ironheart, another casting may get Wong’s undivided attention. Reports have surfaced in just the past few days that Marvel is courting Sacha Baron Cohen to play the demonic bad guy Mephisto–the same guy Marvel fans have been theorizing was the “real” villain of just about every MCU project since WandaVision. If one of the most powerful mystic Marvel antagonists ever is showing up in Ironheart, Riri Williams (Dominique Thorne) would be well-advised to get a consultation or two with Wong.

Of course, Ironheart isn’t the only possibility for whatever the She-Hulk Season finale was hinting at in terms of Wong’s future appearances. Considering the main character’s own mystical background, Season 2 of Loki could always use a Wong appearance; and perhaps even a variant of Wong from another corner of the Multiverse. Oscar Isaac’s Moon Knight is also steeped in the world of magic, and if rumors of a Season 2 of his series are to be believed, Wong could certainly find a place there.

Then there’s Charlie Cox’s upcoming revival series Daredevil: Born Again. Matt Murdock’s crime-fighting world occasionally bumps up against the mystical side of things, including in the original Netflix show. Hey, maybe She-Hulk could go visit Matt and Wong could make for a full-fledged third wheel reunion.

There’s another possibility: with the She-Hulk Season 1 finale mid-credits scene, Wong may have been hinting at his own show. Fans have been clamoring for a Wong series for a while, and earlier this year the actor said he was open to the possibility.
