Benedict Wong Wants Nightmare As Villain In ‘Doctor Strange’ Sequel

Benedict Wong named Nightmare as the villain he would like to see in Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

In July, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige announced Benedict Cumberbatch will reprise his role as the eponymous sorcerer in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Expected to join Benedict Cumberbatch in the Doctor Strange sequel is co-star Benedict Wong, who portrayed Wong in the first film and the previous two Avengers projects.

Of course, details on what foes Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange and Benedict Wong’s Wong will face in the sequel are currently unknown, though the latter seems to at least one contender in mind. During an interview with ComicBook.com, Benedict Wong noted named Nightmare as a villain he might like to see go up against Benedict Cumberbatch in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness:

“I don’t really know, to be honest… I think there’s Nightmare, isn’t there? I don’t really know that many to be honest, I just kind of allow it to appear. Whatever happens, I just allow it to happen.”

In the comics, Nightmare is the ruler of the dream dimension and acts as the personification of nightmares. Known as one of the Fear Lords, Nightmare has the ability to influences the dreams of living beings as they sleep and feed on humanity’s psychic energies in particular.
