Xochitl Gomez Joins Doctor Strange 2 in an Unknown Role

Xochitl Gomez

Deadline is reporting that Xochitl Gomez is joining the cast of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Benedict Cumberbatch returns in the title role with Sam Raimi taking over as director. Marvel Studios has not commented on the casting.

It is expected that Benedict Wong and Chiwetel Ejiofor will also return to their roles for the sequel. New to the film will be Elizabeth Olsen who will reprise her role as Scarlet Witch, aka Wanda Maximoff. That character will get the spotlight in the upcoming television series WandaVision which will tie into the Doctor Strange sequel.

Due to Gomez’s ethnicity, age, and the fact that the film has to do with the multiverse, speculation is Gomez will play America Chavez. Speculation is fueled further by Chavez being a member of the Young Avengers, a team that Scarlet Witch’s kids are a part of as well. Those characters are expected to debut on WandaVision. Chavez is an extra-dimensional character who can hop through dimensions, has super strength, and flight as part of her powers.

Xochitl Gomez most recently starred as Dawn Schafer in The Baby-Sitters Club television series. She’s appeared in numerous shorts and on television shows with 19 credits so far.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness Loses its Director

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

Scott Derrickson won’t be directing Marvel StudiosDoctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Marvel confirmed the departure citing “creative differences.” It was a mutual decision. Derrickson will remain on as an executive producer.

In a statement to Variety, Marvel Studios said:

Marvel Studios and Scott Derrickson have amicably parted ways on ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ due to creative differences. We remain grateful to Scott for his contributions to the MCU.

Derrickson also released a statement via Twitter:

Marvel and I have mutually agreed to part ways on ‘Doctor Strange: In the Multiverse of Madness’ due to creative differences. I am thankful for our collaboration and will remain on as EP.

The film was to begin production in May and there’s not expected to be delays for shooting. A search for a replacement director is underway.

The film company has had issues when it comes to directors having multiple leave projects, or not even start, due to “creative differences.” In 2014 Edgar Wright stepped down from helming Ant-Man after years in development. Joss Whedon seems to have had a more amicable split after Avengers: Age of Ultron and Tweeted support to Wright hinting at his own negative experience which he’s talked a little about. Ava DuVernay was in talks to direct Black Panther but passed because “she couldn’t make it her own.” DuVernay is now playing in DC Comics/Warner Bros. sandbox on multiple projects.

The first Doctor Strange was released in 2016 and earned $677.7 million worldwide.
