Ever since he debuted as Wong in 2016, Benedict Wong quickly became one of the MCU veterans, even though his character is always a supporting one. Wong first appeared as Wong in 2016’s Doctor Strange, and he reprised the role in Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Spider-Man: No Way Home, and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. He also starred in an animated series What If…?, and now he’ll return in the forthcoming series She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.
After revealing the first official trailer, Disney revealed the official press release of the series, in which it was confirmed that the series will consist of nine episodes (it was set to have 10 initially), and they confirmed the casting list, which also features Benedict Wong in his most known role. You can check the press release down below:
“Directed by Kat Coiro (Episodes 1, 2, 3, 4, 8, 9) and Anu Valia (Episodes 5, 6, 7) with Jessica Gao as head writer, “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law” follows Jennifer Walters as she navigates the complicated life of a single, 30-something attorney who also happens to be a green 6-foot-7-inch superpowered hulk. The nine-episode series welcomes a host of MCU vets, including Mark Ruffalo as Smart Hulk, Tim Roth as Emil Blonsky/the Abomination, and Benedict Wong as Wong. The cast also includes Ginger Gonzaga, Josh Segarra, Jameela Jamil, Jon Bass and Renée Elise Goldsberry. Executive producers are Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Brad Winderbaum, Kat Coiro, and Jessica Gao. Co-executive producers are Wendy Jacobson and Jennifer Booth.”
We watched Wong in last year’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings in which he had a fighting scene with Tim Roth’s Abomination. The scene ended with two of them going through the portal who knows where, but it seems that is somehow connected to the upcoming She-Hulk series.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is set to premiere on August 17, exclusively on Disney+.
