It Sure Seems Like The MCU Is Going To Kill Wong Soon


Warning: This post contains SPOILERS for She-Hulk episode 4!

The new Sorcerer Supreme might be stealing scenes in She-Hulk: Attorney At Law, but it looks like the Marvel Cinematic Universe is going to kill Wong soon. Benedict Wong’s character has become a fan-favorite part of Marvel Studios’ franchise in Phase 4. His appearance in She-Hulk continues the trend of raising his profile and importance to the universe at large. He is by far and away the character audiences have seen the most since Avengers: Endgame. And while that might lead to speculation about a Wong solo movie happening, it also seems likely that his bigger role will result in him paying the ultimate price.

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

Due to Wong’s larger role in Phase 4, there have been a lot of comparisons that he is the MCU’s new Coulson in terms of him being the character to link the various sections of the sprawling universe together. As Marvel proved in The Avengers, being a fan-favorite character with massive connections to the main heroes is not always a good thing. Loki killed Coulson in a move that helped bring the individual heroes together under a common goal. Wong is even more connected to the wider MCU than Coulson was, as Phase 4 alone has made him the new Sorcerer Supreme and interact with Shang-Chi, Doctor Strange, Captain Marvel, Spider-Man, and She-Hulk.

It now seems that Marvel might be teasing that Wong’s death is inevitable and coming very soon. She-Hulk has not only furthered to show how much like Coulson he is in connecting the MCU, but it has also helped explain parts of Wong’s sudden rise to power and becoming Sorcerer Supreme instead of Doctor Strange. The show went a step further in teasing his possible demise, though. She-Hulk episode 4 includes several references to the iconic TV show The Sopranos, as Madisynn repeatedly spoils major deaths for Wong. This could be a subtle way for Marvel to begin reminding audiences that more characters will die during the Multiverse Saga and that Wong might die soon.

Will Wong Die In Avengers: The Kang Dynasty Or Secret Wars?

If Wong is going to die, Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars are the two most likely possibilities. Both of the movies are sure to feature some major deaths, with The Kang Dynasty likely to make Kang’s presence felt by him taking out some characters, such as Wong. It would not even be all that surprising if Marvel used Wong’s death as a way to help assemble the new Avengers team. He is seemingly associated with the team based on Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings‘ post-credits. But if a formal team has not yet come together, news that Kang killed Wong could be what brings Shang-Chi, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, She-Hulk, Spider-Man, and others together.

Even if Wong survives Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, his fate in Secret Wars would be put into question. One of the main reasons for his possible death is the target Marvel put on his back by making Wong the Sorcerer Supreme. It was thought that Doctor Strange would take that role, but it seems such a duty is still in his future. Wong dying would allow Doctor Strange to finally become the MCU’s Sorcerer Supreme. Wong’s MCU death would even then allow other mystical Marvel characters like Clea or Brother Voodoo to step up. In any case, Wong’s role in She-Hulk: Attorney At Law might be all part of the MCU‘s long-term plans for him.

New episodes of She-Hulk: Attorney At Law release on Thursdays on Disney+.
