Strange’s appeal to the franchise is apparent. The Master of the Mystic Arts and his mentor Wong (played by Benedict Wong) appearing in six Marvel films between them as of No Way Home. Cumberbatch also voiced his character in Marvel’s What If…?, appearing alongside returning cast members Tilda Swinton and Rachel McAdams in the series’ Doctor Strange-themed episode.
