Due of the inclusion of an LGBTQ+ character, theaters in Egypt and Kuwait have become the latest to ban Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Due to the presence of America Chavez, an openly homosexual character, Egypt and Kuwait have become the latest countries to ban Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness from theaters. The film will no longer be shown in the region, according to IMAX Egypt on social media. “During their travel across universes, Doctor Strange and Wanda will not be present! In Egypt, [Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness] will not be released “the business wrote.

The news comes only days after it was reported that Saudi Arabia has banned the film due to its LGBTQ+ content. It has also been reported that Kuwaiti theaters will no longer show the picture, though this has not been confirmed. Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Kuwait all have anti-LGBTQ+ legislation in place. In Saudi Arabia, fines, imprisonment, and even the death penalty can be imposed for same-sex acts, cross-dressing, or merely being transgender. When it comes to LGBTQ+ content, the media is extensively suppressed. In Egypt, similar restrictions are in place, with various human rights organizations claiming entrapment, abuse, and torture of LGBTQ+ people by police.

When Marvel Studios’ Eternals was released, it was subjected to similar censoring. However, a cut of the film was published subsequently that removed LGBTQ+ characters and moments. It’s unclear whether a similarly trimmed version of the video will be released in the next Multiverse of Madness.

America Chavez was first established in Marvel Comics’ Vengeance #1 in 2011 by writer Joe Casey and illustrator Nick Dragotta. Chavez was the first Latin American LGBTQ+ character to get her own solo series as an openly lesbian character. Casey recently spoke on the superhero’s sexual orientation and how it was portrayed in the Marvel Cinematic Universe flick.

“This isn’t unique to America Chavez,” Casey remarked, “but I’ve always believed that our heroic fiction should, in basic ways, represent our own reality.” “Unlike the Marvel Universe that first appeared in comic books in the early 1960s, our current reality is multiracial. So newer Marvel characters like America Chavez, Miles Morales, and Kamala Khan not only reflect the reality of 2022, but they also appear to have bonded with a segment of the fans that, in some way, identifies with them.””This isn’t unique to America Chavez,” Casey remarked, “but I’ve always believed that our heroic fiction should, in basic ways, represent our own reality.” “Unlike the Marvel Universe that first appeared in comic books in the early 1960s, our current reality is multiracial.
