Xochitl Gomez, the young actor known for Netflix's The Baby-Sitters Club, has joined Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

Character details are being kept under guard in the Sanctum Sanctorum.  Marvel had no comment.

Benedict Cumberbatch once again stars as Doctor Strange, who will also appear in the upcoming Spider-Man Far From Home sequel. Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch is also in Multiverse of Madness, which will be affected by Olsen's upcoming Disney+ show WandaVision, which bows in December.

Sam Raimi is in the director's chair for the film, which Marvel Studios has set for March 25, 2022. Raimi steps in for Scott Derrickson, who directed 2016's Doctor Strange, which introduced the Sourcer Supreme and opened up the mystic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Gomez is repped by Savage Agency.
