The deleted role for America Chavez in Spider-Man: No Way Home has been revealed.

Recently, concept art for Spider-Man: No Way Home featured the character of America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez). Ultimately, the film did not feature the character, who will instead make her debut in the upcoming Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Now, we got some context regarding how her role could’ve been in the film.

America Chavez co-creator Joe Casey, who publicly declined what he described as Marvel’s “pittance” of an offer ahead of the character’s appearance in the Doctor Strange sequel was interviewed by THR, and the interview featured this excerpt explaining the following regarding the character’s potential involvement in Spider-Man: No Way Home:

“It is unknown where America Chavez will end up next, but it’s safe to say there’s much more in her Marvel Studios future. For a time, she was even considered for a part in Spider-Man: No Way Home, in which she would have played the sorcerer’s apprentice type role that ultimately went to Ned (Jacob Batalon), according to a knowledgeable source. No Way Home, which stands as the No. 6 movie of all time globally, was initially supposed to open after the Doctor Strange sequel and so her No Way Home part was cut.”

America Chavez will make her MCU debut in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Here is the synopsis:

The MCU unlocks the Multiverse and pushes its boundaries further than ever before. Journey into the unknown with Doctor Strange, who, with the help of mystical allies both old and new, traverses the mind-bending and dangerous alternate realities of the Multiverse to confront a mysterious new adversary.

Directed by Sam Raimi from a script written by Michael Waldron, the upcoming movie stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Elizabeth Olsen, Benedict Wong, Xochitl Gomez, with Michael Stuhlbarg, and Rachel McAdams.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness hits theaters on May 6, 2022. Meanwhile, Spider-Man: No Way Home will be available to own on Digital HD on March 15, 2022 and on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray, and DVD on April 12, 2022.
