"After weeks of rumors and theories, the truth finally falls on the table: Rachel McAdams has confirmed that she will star opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in the upcoming installment to the Marvel franchise, Doctor Strange.
According to TheWrap, McAdams confirmed Monday what all fanboys have been hoping to see for so long. Hosting a star-studded cast ranging from talents such as Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton, and Chiwetel Ejiofor, and with the rumors of Mads Mikkelsen being cast as the villain, McAdams will be a great addition to the team, bringing to the table her great acting chops with her award-winning smile.
McAdams has been no stranger to the rumors, and has been more than open about mentioning discussions with Marvel back in July. When asked about the Doctor Strange, and the talks with Marvel, McAdams merely replied, “I don’t have much to say about it right now. There’s not really anything to comment on. But if there is, I’ll let you know.”
Now that we’ve found who will play the female lead, the next question is, who will she be portraying in the film? Obviously, the largest consensus is that she will play longtime love interest in the comics, Clea, but to be honest, the role could go in any direction, from Clea, to Donna, his sister. Only time will tell what character Marvel has in mind for McAdams to portray in the film."
