A longtime Marvel casting favorite for fans and critics alike, McAdams is the next actor to be confirmed in what appears to be a very powerhouse ensemble; Cumberbatch, Swinton & Ejiofor. Fingers crossed that Mads Mikkelsen signs that contract for an even crazier acting ensemble. No info yet on who she’s going to play but all bets are on famed Doctor Strange love interest, Clea.
The film is set to hit theaters in November of 2016. What do you think of Rachel McAdams joining Doctor Strange? Sound off in the comment section below!
