Doctor Strange suffers censorship for its LGBT protagonist

  • Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is going to beat Spider-Man No Way Home at the box office

    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will suffer the same (bad) luck as the movie Eternals in those countries where homosexuality is prohibited and persecuted. The new character introduced by Marvel Studios in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of MadnessAmérica Chávez (Xotchil Gómez), in addition to one of the best characters in Marvel comics, born in the series of young avengershas been an LGBT reference for a decade and his mere presence in the film already constitutes a symbol for these countries that “contradicts their values”, which is the argument that was already used in the case of Eternals. Technically the films are not officially censored, but rather do not receive a distribution certificate. So far, it has been confirmed that Doctor Strange will not be distributed in Saudi Arabia or Kuwait, as confirmed dead line and The Hollywood Reporter. Egypt is the next country to join, with IMAX confirming that the film will not be distributed in Egypt. In the case of Eternals It was the chronicle of an announced cancellation, since a year before the film was released it had already been leaked that we would see the first LGBT kiss and the first gay superhero in a Marvel movie. In this case, it is clear what is behind the censorship because it is directly censored that there is a homosexual protagonist, not any scene (or scenes) that could be controversial. Among all the alleged leaks of Doctor Strangethis time it has not been leaked if there will be a scene similar to the one in Eternals in it Multiverse of Madness.

    América Chávez is a fabulous character to work on integration properly understood, without posturing, in a natural way: not only is she a good LGBT character, a character clearly identifiable as a lesbian, but because she is not defined solely by her sexual orientation and her inclusion in the history has nothing to do with their gender identity. She not only has enough features to differentiate herself from heterosexual characters, but she also has weight in the story because of her abilities as a superhero. Of all the Marvel heroes, the one that fit the most in a trip between different universes was her. She is a true representation of an LGBT character and furthermore a young LGBT character who can connect so much with LGBT audiences to help normalize different gender identities in mass consumer products. It’s basically the difference between the kiss at the end of the rise of skywalker in Star Wars, an anecdote and a missed opportunity with Commander D’Acy, and a main character like América Chavez in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. That’s why the kiss of Eternals it was important.


    América Chávez also has a long journey not only in the Multiverse: she is a constant in the new adventures of Captain Marvel, which expands her presence to The Marvels, as well as to the new Ms. Marvel series, but she is also linked to Monica Rambeau, presented in WandaVision (not to mention her relationship with Wanda Maximoff’s children, we still don’t know what will happen to them in the MCU), and in the comics she has always been linked to Loki, who At the moment, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe he is officially the first openly bisexual character. For now, América Chávez is going to become a central character within the Multiverse of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, being the only character that is officially capable of jumping from one multiverse to another (another thing is how the film develops this). ..if we don’t take Loki and the Time Variation Agency into account (we’re still betting that we’re going to see Tom Hiddleston’s Loki in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness). In the comics, Chavez hails from the Utopian Parallel, a realm outside of time and space. When America was small, this Parallel was attacked. To stabilize the parallel, Chavez’s two mothers sacrificed their lives to seal the cracks, scattering their atoms. America created an interdimensional portal to escape and become a heroine that her mothers would be proud of.
