There will most certainly be many cameos of heroes and villains from different realms in ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,’ but one figure we know will appear is America Chavez. Doctor Strange 2, Stephen Strange, and America Chavez explore the multiverse.
Doctor Strange 2 depicts America as 14 years old, which is younger than the comics describe her. She is also from the Utopian Parallel, an alternate universe that exists outside of the multiverse. America is on the run from a Doctor Strange version when fans first meet her.
Are her parents alive in Doctor Strange 2?
Strange and Chavez pass across a shop that allows them to recall memories of when they first visited the 838 realms, and Chavez plays a memory of her parents. She had been playing outside with her two mums when she was startled by a bee and opened a portal by accident. Her parents have been rescued. Since then, Chavez has been unable to locate them. Strange’s conviction in Chavez’s abilities suggests that the couple could still be alive. He tells her at one point that she always delivers individuals to the correct universe so that they can live happily ever after in another. Chavez is expected to return to the MCU, thus this may be something that is explored when she does. For the time being, we’ve left her learning in Wong’s capable hands.
Who Plays America Chavez?
Xochitl Gomez plays America Chavez. Her special combination of skills will come in helpful as Strange strives to put the crazy of the multiverse back in the bottle. She is a teenager with the power to punch holes into the multiverse and so enter multiple realms.
America Chavez is not only key to the plot of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, but she is also a significant step forward in terms of representation. “This character was important to me for many personal reasons, but it was also important that we make an effort to have every kid in this world represented in our universe, and she represents both the LGBTQ+ and Latinx communities,” said Victoria Alonso, President, Visual Effects, and Animation Production at Marvel Studios.
