After a bit of speculation, “True Detective” and “Mean Girls” star Rachel McAdams admitted that she is currently in negotiations with Marvel Studios for the female lead role in their upcoming film, “Doctor Strange.” McAdams initially revealed the information in a quick interview with the LA Times, saying that the talks are “still [in the] super-early days, and I don’t know where that’s gonna go, if it’s gonna go anywhere at all.”
After that quote was picked up by news sites, LA Times writer Amy Kaufman tweeted McAdams’ full response to the “Doctor Strange” question (h/t to Newsarama for spotting it), which reveals that she definitely knows a thing or three about the world of comics and graphic novels.

Considering how much Neil Gaiman plays with mystical elements in comics like “Black Orchid” and his long-running “Sandman” series, which is currently getting transformed into a feature film produced by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, it makes sense that McAdams would be attracted to Marvel’s master of magic. McAdams has yet to officially sign on for the film, and it’s not yet been revealed which character she would be playing — although new information hints that the role could be that of the Night Nurse.
“Doctor Strange” opens on November 4, 2016.
