Rachel McAdams Confirmed For Doctor Strange


Back in July, we reported on a rumor that Rachel McAdams was up for a starring role opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Doctor Strange.  Today, via TheWrap, we have confirmation that the Notebook (2004) and True Detective star has been confirmed for the Scott Derrickson-helmed film.

Rachel McAdams is currently one of the hottest names in Hollywood.  After making multiple film and television appearances, McAdams got her big break when she starred as the villainous Regina George opposite Lindsay Lohan in the teen-comedy Mean Girls (2004).  She later solidified her fame in The Notebook (2004) which also starred Ryan Gosling.  McAdams can be seen in the upcoming The Spotlight — slated to be released on November 6, 2015 — which has been given critical acclaim from early screenings.

As of this report, it’s unknown who McAdams will play in Doctor Strange.

Doctor Strange will be in Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and is set for a release date of November 4, 2016.  The film will be directed by Scott Derrickson, and written by Thomas Dean Donnelly, Joshua Oppenheimer, and Jon Spaihts.  Current confirmed cast members are Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Stephen Strange / Doctor Strange, Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One, and Chiwetel Ejiofor as Baron Mordo.
