With all of the wild Spider-Man 3 news that has been coming out this past week, we know that the film is going to be messing around with the multiverse. Fans have been speculating that director Jon Watts’ Spider-Man 3 and Sam Raimi’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will be connected and Marvel Studios. After all, Benedict Cumberbatch will reprise his role as Doctor Strange in the Spider-Man sequel.
Well, president Kevin Feige recently confirmed that is the case. The events of these two Marvel films will tie in together. Feige also shared that production has started on Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and that it’s shooting in London. He described the project as “a thrilling, scary, and minding-bending adventure.”
It was also confirmed Marvel Comics hero America Chavez, a.k.a. Miss America, will make her MCU debut in the Doctor Strange sequel. This has been rumored for some time, and Xochitl Gomez (The Baby-Sitters Club) will be bringing that character to life.
America Chazez is a Latin-American gay immigrant superhero who was a member of the short-lived New Teen Brigade, the Young Avengers, and the Ultimates. She is a tough, no-nonsense hero who has a genuine desire to help others and do good.
Gomez also joins Benedict Wong, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Rachel McAdams who are all reprising their roles as fellow sorcerer Wong, Karl Mordo, and Dr. Christine Palmer.
The film will also see Elizabeth Olsen back in the role of Scarlet Witch, a.k.a. Wanda Maximoff. The events of the story will also tie in with Marvel’s WandaVision. She is said to play a big role in the film and there’s speculation that she could end up being the villain. I assume that Tom Holland’s Spider-Man will be in the film as well.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will hit theaters on March 25, 2022.
