Xochitl Gomez’s America Chavez pays homage to his comic book counterpart on box art for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness toy line.
The Marvel range of toys for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness pays homage to America Chavez’s comic book counterpart in box art.
The box art of the Marvel Legends American action figure shows that the character’s upcoming appearance won’t stray much from the source material. The art depicts America in a comically accurate denim jacket as she claps her hands together and smiles at the viewer. This pose is a clear recreation of Jamie McKelvie’s cover variant for 2017 America # 1, the hero’s first solo title.
In Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Xochitl Gomez plays America Chavez, a young hero with the power to travel between dimensions. Multiverse of Madness follows Benedict Cumberbatch’s Stephen Strange over his actions in Spider-Man: No Path Home, as he apparently tries to mend the fabric of reality.
Many believe America’s debut in the next film could also lay the groundwork for a new team of superheroes, the Young Avengers. In the comics, America allies with Kid Loki, Wiccan, Speed, Patriot, Stature, and Kate Bishop, all of whom have appeared in one way or another in recent MCU projects. However, Marvel Studios has yet to confirm that these characters will cross paths with each other soon.
While Multiverse of Madness will introduce fans to the MCU’s newest hero, the film will also host a returning favorite. Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff would have been a big factor in the film’s plot, following WandaVision. Now known as Scarlet Witch, Olsen has said her turn as Wanda will be unlike anything fans have seen before.
While Marvel Studios has introduced a lineup of starry heroes for the Strange sequel, there’s still a veil of secrecy surrounding Multiverse of Madness‘ bad guys. There are several antagonists currently attached to the project, including a dark Doctor Strange lookalike shown briefly in the film’s trailer.
The appearance of this cosmic counterpart has led many to theorize that What if…?‘s evil Strange will face off against the good doctor in Multiverse of Madness. Additionally, the film will bring Chiwetel Ejiofor back as Baron Mordo, a former ally of Doctor Strange who abandoned Stephen in order to avoid contributing to what he perceived to be an abuse of the mystical arts.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness hits theaters on May 6, 2022.
