Things We Saw Today: The Baby-Sitters Club’s Xochitl Gomez Is Heading To Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness!

Recommended Videos

The Baby-Sitter’s Club‘s own Dawn Schaeffer, the talented young actress Xochitl Gomez, will be making her Marvel debut! News broke that Gomez is going to join Benedict Cumberbatch in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. According to Deadline, the young star is joining the movie (which begins filming after Cumberbatch films his scenes for the third installment to Tom Holland’s Spider-Man movies) but doesn’t list who Gomez is going to be playing.

With the inclusion of Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) in the film, Gomez could be playing any number of characters (including any of the X-Men if Multiverse of Madness is going where I think it is). The movie remains a mystery ever in flux, but we’re excited for Gomez.

When I spoke with Gomez (via email) for The Baby-Sitter’s Club, it was clear that she was an exceptionally talented young actor who took her craft seriously. So to see her join the MCU is wonderful. Hopefully, she gets to bring to life someone cool (and with this movie coming right after the third Spider-Man film … what if it was Anya Corazon?).
