Similar to Marvel Studios’ Eternals, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has been banned in select countries due to the portrayal of an LGBTQ character in the film. The character in question is America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez) who is canonically gay in the Marvel Comics. Censorship laws in international markets mean the film can not be featured in theaters without edits or changes that remove any LGBTQ representation. Marvel and Disney have refused to edit the scenes in question leading to the bans after censorship reviews internationally.
