    Exactly. We get the 'later versions' of these characters in the sequels, except Dr. Strange but he's getting other side heroes

    I think she'll be Spectrum or Photon.

    The first movie already introduced Strange's sidekick with Wong.

    Weird thing is, in the sequel he gets America Chavez, who has nothing to do with him at all in the comics!

    Wong is more of a Happy Hogan type character, although in the MCU he has powers

    Yeah, that was a little out of left field

    Well, Happy's kind of a sidekick too.

    Haha, I meant sidekick as in non-powered side character, vs. someone with powers like War Machine or Robin. Wong was the former in the comics but then got powers in the MCU

    Well, in as far as magic counts as powers .

    Bad example. Robin doesn't have powers!

    Personally, I think it does. It achieves the same effects. So do suits & tech.

    You're right. I meant powers or gadgets. Basically, what I mean is the sidekick an actual superhero, like Robin, or not, like Alfred

    Hmm...I guess because it's something you innately need to learn and practice it doesn't feel the same to me.

    I think the point he's making is that having magic powers means MCU Wong can go into the action alongside Dr. Strange, whereas Happy Hogan running into a fight alongside Iron Man is likely to get Happy killed pretty quickly. War Machine (or Rescue) is Iron Man's "sidekick" in the fight scenes - Hogan is not.

    happy is a mascot not a sidekick. He serves comic relief.

    Sidekick is usually for people who actively get involved in the action

    Brie Larson will reprise her role for ‘AVENGERS: QUANTUM ENCOUNTER’ with Ross Marquand set to voice Ultron. This will be an immersive cinematic technology event for the Disney Wish cruise, launching in 2022.

    They really can't get James Spader back?
