Over the last month or so, we’ve been graced with new details about the new sophomore Doctor Strange film. Today, The Illuminerdi has learned that America Chavez may be making her Marvel debut in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. They learned this information from some casting notes, so we’re crossing our fingers if this is true.
Here’s a quick run down on the character by the website: “America Chavez was created in 2011 by Jow Casey and Nick Dragotta as a new incarnation of the Miss America character. Chavez really came to prominence as a member of the 2013 Young Avengers series by Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie. She’s a brash and confident brawler with a soft side, but she only opens up when she’s with her closest friends. She’s also an openly gay young woman, which would be a major step forward towards representation in the MCU to feature her in a lead role.”
No official word has been said, but more info should be coming soon.
Benedict Cumberbatch will return as the sorcerer supreme, along with Benedict Wong, as Wong, and Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch as her Disney+ series WandaVision will lead directly into Multiverse of Madness. It is unknown who the main villain is at this time but reports surfaced that Doctor Strange villain Nightmare would cause havoc in WandaVision, so it’s possible he could carry over into Multiverse of Madness.
The film was written by Jade Bartlett, who wrote a draft of the upcoming horror film The Turning for Universal Pictures. Marvel Studios CCO Kevin Feige will produce.
Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness hits theaters on May 7, 2021.
