Follow the steps of other Disney productions West Side Story and Eternalsthe next movie from Marvel Studios Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has been banned in Saudi Arabia, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the ban is consistent with the fact that homosexuality is illegal in the Gulf region. As a result, films that simply include LGBTQ characters are often banned in some countries in the region. Although reviewers have yet to see Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madnessthe film features the Marvel Comics character America Chavez, who is gay in the source material.

Although there aren’t many indications of how America (played in Xochitl Gomez’s film) will be portrayed in Multiverse of Madness or how much she will look like her comic book counterpart, the character has long been described as simply proud and proud. It’s a refreshingly nonchalant take on the portrayal – especially compared to the rest of its backstory, which is heavily pieced together and involves multiple universes.

None of this necessarily means that America’s homosexuality will be a major part of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. West Side Story only possesses a trans character, Anybodys (iris menas), and was also banned in Middle Eastern countries despite hardly any mention of their gender or sexuality.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness premieres May 6.
