Deadline dropped some exclusive MCU casting news on us today. Xochitl Gomez will be joining the cast of Doctor Strange 2. Marvel currently has no comment on the casting at this time. Deadline did not have any news on her role in the film. I expect that once Marvel has offcially announced her casting they just might share her role as well. Xochitl Gomez will be joining Benedict Cumberbatch who is reprising his role along with director Sam Raimi.
This is the first casting news outside of those returning from the first film or other MCU films. Plot details, like Xochitl Gomez’s role, are being kept under lock and key. We did learn that Doctor Strange 2 will be bit on the scarier side, capitalizing on Sam Raimi’s love for horror. We also can’t forget that he is a huge fan of Marvel comics and knows his stuff.
Xochitl Gomez will also be joining returning cast members, Benedict Wong and Chiwetel Ejiofor. Elizabeth Olsen will also be joining the cast as Scarlet Witch. Marvel Studios Kevin Feige has shared that the storyline between both Doctor Strange 2 and WandaVision. How it will do that? Guess we will just have to wait and see. Filming will begin once Benedict Cumberbatch wraps on Spider-Man 3.
We can’t wait to see Xochitl Gomez’s official start in the MCU! Keep checking back in with us for more news on Doctor Strange 2 and other MCU films!
