Go ahead and officially add Rachel McAdams to the ranks of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After being rumored to take a role in DOCTOR STRANGE and even confirming some early talks with Marvel Studios about the picture, McAdams has now cemented her status in the mystical realm of Phase Three.

While at the Toronto International Film Festival, McAdams confirmed she will be starring opposite Benedict Cumberbatch, although she wasn't quick to offer up any other details about the nature of her role or the specific character she'd be playing. One would assume she'd be the love interest of the Sorcerer Supreme, making Clea a strong possibility for her involvement, but you know what they say about assuming, right?

McAdams has long been one of those actresses you wish you'd see more of. Any time you catch her in something, she's fantastic, and then when you think about the last thing you saw her in, you think to yourself, "I wish Rachel McAdams was in more stuff." Well, hot on the heels of the coming SPOTLIGHT in addition to her roles in SOUTHPAW and TRUE DETECTIVE Season 2, that's now happening and in a big way, too. McAdams is always a great addition to any film she signs onto, and DOCTOR STRANGE can only benefit from what is now her definite casting.

Scott Derrickson's take on DOCTOR STRANGE will magically appear in theaters on November 4, 2016.

and i'm still not sold on Cumberbatch as Dr. Strange.

in an alternate universe, Cumberbatch is the definitive MCU Reed Richards.

Dr. Strange's love interest?

that's a shame. seems like waste.
unless... she's actually playing a pre-Captain Marvel Carol Danvers in this one?!!?

YES!!

This woman is SO SEXY, and she was the exact person I was thinking for this, she deserves to be hugely successful.

Dormammu might be in the Dr. Strange movie; therefore, Clea is likely to accompany him. Also, fans hope to see Clea in this movie, and Marvel Studios knows that expectation. Otherwise, McAdams might play characters named Morgana Blessing, Sara Wolfe, or Madeleine St. Germaine. They are also women in Stephen Strange's life. St. Germaine plays a part in his origin.

Fantastic cast for Strange! But looking at most MCU movies, they pretty much all have impressive casts when you really think about it. They either cram a crapton of A-listers in their films (a la Age of Ultron and Civil War), have Oscar-worthy talent (Winter Soldier with Redford & Jackson), or introduce / further introduce stars like Pratt and Bautista in GOTG.

Awesome news. She's been on a tear lately with her career and will be another great addition to this terrific cast; which I agree with SauronsBane, is easily one of the better casts of a Marvel film to date.

Can't wait for a first trailer. Easily my most anticipated new comic book film and character to join the established MCU.

She'll be a solid addition to the cast

and yes, I suspect she'll be playing Clea. With her stature and looks, she'd be a natural in the role.

One of the BEST superhero movie casts?

Benedict Cumberbatch
Tilda Swinton
Chiwetal Ejiofer
Rachel McAdams
Possibly Mads Mikkelsen

Wow. Given that cast and the fact that Feige has said he's been wanting to make this movie since before the MCU became, well, the MCU, I'd say this movie just might be something special.

It's a great cast but I doubt the actual movie will be anything too special.
