For including an LGBT+ character, ‘Doctor Strange 2’ is banned in Saudi Arabia


Published on:

Just like what happened in 2021 with the movie ‘Eternals’, it has been revealed that Saudi Arabia is against the release of ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ after Marvel Studios refused to remove content depicting the LGBT+ community in history, which could represent millionaire losses for the house of ideas.

Given that this is not the first time that something like this has happened with Saudi Arabia, rumors had already been reported about its possible ban unless Marvel decided to remove the scenes with LGBT+ representation, as Warner Bros did with ‘Fantastic Animals’ : The Secrets of Dumbledore’, but this has not been the case.

According to a report by The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel Studios has not given in to pressure from Saudi Arabia to remove this type of content from the film, for which “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” will not have its premiere in said country, causing a loss for the company of superheroes.

It must be remembered that in this and other countries, homosexuality is a crime, so the reproduction of LGBT+ themes is totally prohibited, which is why ‘Eternals’ did not have its premiere in Saudi Arabia either, and given that the sequel of ‘Doctor Strange’ also includes a non-straight character, the fate of the tape will be the same.

‘Doctor Strange 2’ includes an LGBT+ character

Among the few details that have been revealed about the multiverse of the madness of the new Marvel movie, it is known that the story will include a new superhero named America Chavez, who in the comics is called Miss America, and in the film is taken to the big screen by actress Xochitl Gomez.

In the Marvel comics, América Chávez is a Latin American girl who identifies with a bisexual sexual orientation, which means that she is attracted to men and women, and although it is not an important detail to be a superhero or not, it seems that it will be represented in some way in the film.

It must be remembered that in “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”, superheroes must do everything possible to save the day, so the time for love is reduced, so it is unlikely that America Chavez will be present in a romantic relationship with a man or a woman, but it will be clear that she is part of the LGBT+ community.
