According to a report by The Illuminerdi, America Chavez could make her MCU debut in Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
The outlet reports that casting notes for the Doctor Strange sequel reveal the filmmakers are searching for a teenage Hispanic female to play a supporting lead opposite Benedict Cumberbatch. As the outlet notes, Marvel Comics heroine America Chavez perfectly fits the description of the aforementioned casting notes for Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange sequel.
Created by Jow Casey and Nick Dragotta as a new version of Miss America, America Chavez became the Marvel’s first Latin-American LGBTQ character to take the lead in her own comic series. Raised in a dimension that is disconnected from other realities, America Chavez lost her mothers when they sacrificed themselves to close a part of black holes that posed a threat to their alternate reality.
Later, America Chavez mastered several powers due to the presence of ambient magical forces during her youth, including the ability to open star-shaped portals that allow her to travel across the multiverse. In hopes of proving herself as a hero, America Chavez ran away from home and traveled across different realities before taking on the Miss America moniker.
