Rachel McAdams confirms starring role in Doctor Strange


After months of speculation, Rachel McAdams seems to have finally confirmed that she is set to join the mystical world of Marvel’s upcoming standalone, Doctor Strange.

According to The Wrap, The True Detective actress revealed her definite involvement with the project on Monday (14th September), in the midst of promoting her latest film – Every Thing Will Be Fine – at the Toronto Film Festival. However, Marvel have yet to officially confirm the news with one of their typical casting announcements.

If true, McAdams will be starring alongside the likes of Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton and Chiwetel Ejiofor in an as-yet-unknown role. Some have speculated that the actress could play a Supreme Sorceress called Cera, who is a powerful disciple-turned-love interest of the eponymous Stephen Strange.

McAdams is not the only actor to be courted by Marvel about the film either. Hannibal‘s Mads Mikklesen is also said to be in contention for an unspecified and possibly villainous role.

Doctor Strange, directed by Scott Derrickson, is set to appear in UK cinemas on 28th October 2016.

Meanwhile, you can watch the trailer for McAdams’ latest film below.
