76205 Gargantos Showdown’s minifigure line-up and packaging not only fully confirms America Chavez (or Miss America) will feature in the sequel, but also gives us our first look at her live-action character, portrayed by Xochitl Gomez. Marvel’s first LGBTQ character to star in a regular comic book series will be joined in the 264-piece set by new versions of Doctor Strange and Wong.
Initial images of 76205 Gargantos Showdown – which will likely be listed on LEGO.com later today – first appeared through the LEGO Building Instructions app, giving us a clear look at all three of those minifigures and the beast they’re duelling. That in itself is a spoiler, because until now we had no confirmation that the sea monster would be part of the Multiverse of Madness.
Gargantos originally debuted in 1969, but hasn’t appeared since 1989, so this is a seriously deep dive into Marvel Comics history for both the new movie and the LEGO Group. Exactly what role the villain will play in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has yet to be revealed, but we’ll find out when the movie hits cinemas in May 2022.
