“He adds an exciting youthful vibrancy. He’s a newcomer to his power and our world. I think he brings a sense of lightness and youth. Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange can be a very selfish and rigid, know-it-all character. He just flies in the face of it,” said Raimi, launching from ScreenRant.

“He’s much more humble and one of us, and he doesn’t take his stand. I didn’t think he liked it at first. So he creates a contrast.”

In the comic version, the character America Chavez does have the ability to open portals and travel from one universe to another with ease. In addition, he also knows the concept of the Multiverse that Doctor Strange does not know much about.

As a result, his presence in Doctor Strange 2 is claimed to help Stephen, who is overwhelmed when he faces chaos due to the Multiverse gate he accidentally opens. At that time, Strange cast a spell wrong when Peter Parker asked for his help to erase everyone’s memory of Spider-Man.

On another occasion, Sam Raimi also explained that Strange would learn a lot about the Multiverse concept from America Chavez.

“Strange is still learning about the Multiverse. And here’s a character who can really get through it. He knows everything very well all the time, and has to learn from a child maybe smart,” Raimi said.
