It may have taken almost two months, but we can now confirm that Rachel McAdams has made an appointment and will join the cast of Marvel Studio’s Doctor Strange.
Rumored to be in talks at the end of July, The Wrap solidly says that McAdams will act opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in the first major supernatural thriller from Marvel’s film branch.
No word yet in exactly who McAdams will play but the good money is on Clea, a major character who not only has a sizeable influence on the good doctor’s life, but can also hold her own on a mystical level with him as well. She also happens to be the daughter of one of Doctor Strange’s most formidable foes, the dread Dormammu.
McAdams is currently coming off of the second season of HBO’s True Detective, which didn’t get quite the rave reviews the first season did.
Scott Derrickson is directing and the tone of the film has been likened to films like Fantasia and Inception in terms of visuals and storytelling style.
Doctor Strange, which will also star Tilda Swinton and Chiwetel Ejiofor, is set to hit theaters on November 4, 2016.
