Xochitl Gomez has been cast in an undisclosed role in Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness we suspect its America Chavez
As per Deadline Xochitl Gomez, has joined the cast of Marvel’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. The young star recently starred in Netflix’s The Baby-Sitters Club reboot. She will star alongside Benedict Cumberbatch under the direction of Sam Raimi. The report further states,
Plot details, as what has become de rigueur for Marvel entries, are being kept under wraps, so it’s unclear what role Gomez will be playing in the comic book sequel.
America Chavez In Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness
At the start of the year, an audition tape surfaced that showed a young girl explaining the concept of Multiverse to possibly Doctor Stephen Strange and Wong. Back in January while Marvel Scooper, Charles Murphy had dug the audition tape another credible source Illuminerdi acquired a casting note that matches Xochitl Gomez’s description. The report noted,
The most surprising is the casting call for a teenage Hispanic female who will be a supporting lead in the film.
The Baby-Sitters Club star Gomez fits the bill perfectly. While Marvel Studios would like to keep the character under wraps. What makes Gomez’s casting very interesting is the fact that America Chavez can actually break open star-shaped portals that allow her and others to travel across space, time, and even the entire Multiverse.
The audition tape leak further cements the fact that character being auditioned can travel the Multiverse. By the look of the tape Gomez is going to be pretty badass in the MCU just like the comics.
