- Xochitl Gomez and Val Chmerkovskiy won Dancing with the Stars Season 32.
- They scored a perfect 120 marks for their semifinal and final dances.
- Fans are speculating if Gomez will return as America Chavez in the MCU, particularly in the upcoming Young Avengers project and Avengers: Secret Wars.
In 2022, Xochitl Gomez played a role in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, but she recently won a different battle when she emerged as the victor of Dancing with the Stars Season 32 on Tuesday night. Alongside her partner Val Chmerkovskiy, Gomez defeated singer Jason Mraz and his partner Daniella Karagach to clinch the Mirrorball Trophy. The duo were the only pair to achieve a perfect 120 marks across their semifinal and final dances.
According to Deadline, Gomez was thrilled with her victory and joked about returning to the ballroom next week for fun since she doesn’t want the show to end. Upon winning, she stated:
I don’t want this show to end, and I think it’s gonna be really good for me to keep coming back.
Chmerkovskiy chimed in with:
We’ll be back here next week, just streaming on our socials.
For their final performances, Gomez and Chmerkovskiy danced the foxtrot and freestyle routines. The actress credited judge Bruno Tonioli’s guidance for helping her perfect the foxtrot and achieve their impressive scores. However, now that the competition is over, there is some adjusting to reality. Gomez explained:
“The whole night was special. I keep saying it feels bittersweet because, for us, every week that we had a great performance felt like exactly like this feeling. Truly, every time we got called safe, we felt like we were winning. So tonight, it felt like that times 100.”
With Gomez’s Dancing with the Stars journey behind her, fans are curious about whether she will reprise her role as America Chavez in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), especially in the upcoming projects, Young Avengers and Avengers: Secret Wars. Her character, last seen studying under Wong at Kamar-Taj, seems to be headed for a significant part in these projects. As the MCU takes a short break in 2024, it remains uncertain if any announcements about Young Avengers will be delayed. However, it is evident that Marvel Studios is preparing for a reconfiguration, with projects like Young Avengers poised to play a role in the coming years.
