i read Wong is a master sorceror in doctor strange is that true? im glad marvel are finally giving us some asian charaters.

Yes, that’s true. Wong will have a substantial role as one of the Master Sorcerers in ‘Doctor Strange’. Elektra is Asian in the Netflix shows and her story is likely going to be a major upcoming plot line based off how the last season of ‘Daredevil’ ended, Jessica Henwick has also been cast as Colleen Wing on Netflix, Mantis will be joining the Guardians of the Galaxy in Vol 2, Ming Na-Wen and Chloe Bennett are still the female leads on AoS, and Kenneth Choi will appear in ‘Spider-man: Homecoming’. It’s not perfect but diversity (not just asian) has definitely improved in a major way since Kevin Fiege took control of Marvel Studios from Ike Perlmutter late last year and should continue to do so going forward. Ike Perlmutter is the one who vetoed a Black Widow movie (Which Fiege has now said he’s committed to), he’s the one who prevented female merchandise (which there is now a lot more of), he’s the one who prevented a female villain in Ironman 3 (There will now be female villains in GotG2 and Thor 3), he didn’t want any female led solo movies (Kevin Fiege fought for Captain Marvel and later added Wasp to the Ant-man sequel), the list goes on and on. The MCU is now 100% in Kevin Fiege’s capable hands and should be better than ever going forward.
