The upcoming sequel to 2016’s Doctor Strange is shaping to change the Marvel Cinematic Universe in some very big ways. With the inclusion of Wanda Maximoff and rumors of Nightmare appearing, the Sorcerer Supreme will need all the help he can get. As first reported by The Illuminderi, fan-favorite Marvel hero America Chavez may appear in the film.
Debuting within the pages of Marvel Comics in 2011, Chavez AKA Miss America is the first Latin-American LGBTQ character to star in an ongoing series. She often appears alongside the Young Avengers, The Ultimates and the West Coast Avengers. Her abilities include superhuman strength, speed, durability, flight, and inter-reality transportation. Moreover, the character is voiced by The Fosters star Cierra Ramirez in Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors.
The initial report notes that casting calls have gone out for a teenage Hispanic female to be supporting lead in the film. However, there isn’t a litany of Marvel Characters who could fit that description, making Miss America the most likely option.
Recently, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness made headlines after director Scott Derrickson dropped out of the project. No new director has been named at this time.
With a script from Miller’s Girl scribe Jade Bartlett, the sequel will follow Benedict Cumberbatch’s Stephen Strange as he travels the multiverse alongside Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlett Witch, who can next be seen in WandaVision. Additionally, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 that the Disney+ series will lead directly into In the Multiverse of Madness.
