It’s learned that Rachel McAdams is returning for Doctor Strange 2 possibly reprising her role as Dr. Christine Palmer. No specific details are known about McAdams’ involvement in the movie or how big a role her character will play in the sequel. The cast for Doctor Strange 2 also includes Benedict Cumberbatch, with it said …
A while back it was rumored the Doctor Strange movie would not feature an origin story with it also put out there that Marvel was not going to do any more origin stories for their movies.
Well, Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige shoots down the rumor citing Doctor Strange‘s origin is pretty cool.
“For some reason people sometimes talked about how we’re not doing an origin story, we’re bored of origin stories,” Feige told IGN. “I think people are bored of origin stories they’ve seen before or origin stories that are overly familiar. Doctor Strange has one of the best, most classic, most unique origin stories of any hero we have, so why wouldn’t we do that? That was sort of always the plan. How you tell that origin, perhaps there are ways to twist it or play with that, but for the most part, it’s a gift when the comics have something with such clarity of story and of character. That doesn’t always happen in the comics, and when it does, you use it.”
Rachel McAdams also has an unknown role in Doctor Strange, which Feige touches upon.
“She plays a very, very big part in the movie and represents a certain point of view of the worlds that we experience in that movie, but Doctor Strange, without a doubt, is the character we follow through the movie.”
Doctor Strange has a November 4, 2016 release directed by Scott Derrickson also starring Tilda Swinton as the Ancient One (Feige confirmes the Ancient One is a female).
Having been rumored for weeks and recently confirming talks with Marvel, now Rachel McAdams has come out with it and confirmed she has been cast in Doctor Strange.
Rachel McAdams confirmed the news to The Wrap while appearing at this weekend’s Toronto Film Festival, which sees her join Benedict Cumberbatch as Stephen Strange and Tilda Swinton as the Ancient One.
McAdams’ character remains a mystery and no specific details are known; Marvel has yet to officially announce the news.
A previous report mentioned Rachel McAdams is up to play the female lead, which may be Clea, Doctor Strange’s lover and disciple.
“Doctor Strange” begings filming this Fall and has a November 4, 2016 release directed by Scott Derrickson.
Updated: with video:
True Detective‘s Rachel McAdams confirms she is up for the female lead in the Doctor Strange movie.
McAdams, however, tells the LA Times she is unsure if she’ll get the part.
She is considering playing the female lead in Marvel’s “Doctor Strange,” which is set to star Benedict Cumberbatch, though she is careful to note, “it’s still super-early days, and I don’t know where that’s gonna go, if it’s gonna go anywhere at all.” But she’s not a “comic book snob.” (Or a reality TV snob, for that matter: She says she’s been watching this season of “The Bachelorette.”)
It’s unknown what role McAdams may be up for, but a possibility is Clea, Doctor Strange’s lover and disciple.
Doctor Strange begins filming in the Fall so casting announcements should be coming soon enough; probably at next month’s Disney D23 Expo.
