Concept art from Spider-Man: No Way Home has revealed that one of the heroines from Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was originally set to appear in the film.
The pandemic has turned Marvel Studios’ plans for Phase IV MCU upside down, both in the series on Disney + and in feature films, forcing Marvel to review certain plots and rearrange its release schedule.
These changes notably affected Spider-Man: No Way Home, which was originally scheduled to hit theaters after Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. And a new concept art unveiled on social networks proves that Marvel studios had very different plans for the third installment of the adventures of Spider-Man embodied by Tom Holland.
Posted by artist Maciej Kuciara on Twitter, but later deleted, the concept art in question reveals that America Chavez aka Miss America was originally meant to appear in No Way Home! We see the superheroine on a track of bumper cars with Peter Parker, MJ (Zendaya), Ned (Jacob Batalon) and other classmates.
She levitates a book and seems to use her powers, surely in connection with the Multiverse. It wouldn’t have been surprising for the superheroine to appear in Spider-Man: No Way Home since she would have been introduced in Doctor Strange 2 before and is able to make her way to other universes through portals.
Miss America doesn’t appear in Spider-Man: No Way Home, but will be introduced as actress Xochitl Gomez in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the first trailer of which served as the second post-credits scene. No Way Home. The superheroine will then have plenty of time to help Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) with questions about the Multiverse.
