‘Strange Academy’: Rumored Marvel TV Series Would Have Wong Training The Next Generation Of Sorcerers

Normally, a rumor from The Cosmic Circus wouldn’t chart very high for me, but this one is too interesting to ignore. There have been rumblings about a new Marvel Disney+ series that would tie closely to Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. If the rumors are true, that would be Strange Academy, and place Sorcerer Supreme Wong right at its center.

Similar to the Marvel Comics series, Strange Academy would center on a school for the training of students with magical abilities. For the MCU version, it could find Wong training the young sorcerers who survived Scarlet Witch’s attack on Kamar-Taj in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

This could also be the series that marks the return of Xochitl Gomez as America Chavez, who was training at Kamar-Taj when last we saw her.

The report claims Strange Academy “is meant to be one of the more important tie-in stories leading into The Kang Dynasty, as it will also tie into multiple aspects of the MCU aside from the supernatural.”

I don’t know how much stock I put in this rumor, but the comic is a lot of fun and features other powerful mages such as Scarlet Witch, Brother Voodoo, Agatha Harkness, and Dead Girl of the X-Statix. Anything that gets us closer to an X-Statix movie is okay with me.
