First shown during Spider-Man: No Way Home, the Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness trailer is now online.
It’s clear that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is going to be dealing with the opening of the Multiverse for some time now, and things look especially crazy in this upcoming film.
There is a lot to absorb in this trailer, but one of the main things is a very quick glimpse of a woman in a denim jacket with a giant white star on the back. This is our first look at Xochitl Gomez playing a new hero in the MCU, America Chavez, also known as Miss America.
Introduced in the comics in 2011, Miss America comes from a dimension called the Utopian Parallel where she gained powers by absorbing the natural magic essence of her home dimension. She is able to “kick” star-shaped holes in reality that allows her to jump through dimensions at will with friends and teammates.
She also has the powers of flight, super strength, durability, and super speed. Combined with her dimensional powers, it sounds as though someone that would be super useful to have around with all of these multiverse issues on the way.
As to the other version of Doctor Strange at the end, that is indeed the version from the animated What If…? series on Disney Plus. If you haven’t watched that yet, now is definitely the time.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will hit theaters on May 6, 2022.
