Xochitl Gomez (The Baby-Sitters Club) is set to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe as she has been cast in director Sam Raimi’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
She will join Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange along with Benedict Wong and Chiwetel Ejiofor who will reprise their roles as Wong and Karl Mordo. Elizabeth Olsen‘s Scarlet Witch, aka Wanda Maximoff, will also play a big role in the story. As we’ve previously reported, the events of WandaVision will lead into the events of the Doctor Strange sequel.
There are no details revealed on who Gomez will be playing and it’s hard to speculate on her role in the film, so we’ll eventually find out what they have planned for her.
Out of all the Marvel films that have been announced for the upcoming phase, this is the one that I’m most excited about. I can’t wait to see what Marvel and the creative team are planning for this, especially with and the fact that this movie is going to be a huge turning point in the MCU with it cracking open the multiverse.
