Doctor Strange: Benedict Wong Cast As Wong!

In a tale of two Benedicts, we’ve finally seen the addition of a key role in the story of Marvel’s Dr. Stephen Strange. Joining the cast of Scott Derrickson’s Doctor Strange  is Benedict Wong, playing the Doctor’s most trusted ally and companion, Wong.

Heroes to Inspire Hairiness; Movember and No-Shave November, Comics-Style

November is almost like a silver-age DC character when it comes to being a theme month for men’s health issues. Representing “Earth One” is the Movember Foundation, which since 2003 has been encouraging men to grow their mustaches during November in an effort to raise awareness and money to combat prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health, and physical inactivity.

Representing “Earth Two” is No-Shave November, which concentrates its fund- and awareness-raising efforts on cancer prevention, research, and education. Rather than the ‘stache, No-Shave November merely wants participants to quit shaving completely.
