Originally from Los Angeles, 16-year-old Gomez carries emotional weight Dr. Gharib In the multiverse of Madness, being the character pursued by the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and defended by Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), as if it were the great trophy of defense.

“I call Xochitl ‘Chicky Chavez’ affectionately, because in addition to the fact that she is beautiful and has a very cute personality, when the movie started she was 14 years old. We’ve seen her grow up at Marvel Studios, train as an actress and always maintain a very humble attitude.

“For me, Chavez’s America represents the ability to tell new stories from the Latin world, new stories with LGBTQ+ characters and new plots that will be part of our films,” says Argentine CEO Alonso, who has also announced that she is part of the LBTQ+ community.
