Rachel McAdams is to star in Marvel’s Doctor Strange with Benedict Cumberbatch. There is no word yet on the character she will be playing.
The film is based on the Marvel Comics character created by Stan Lee and artist Steve Ditko. Stephen Strange, controlled by apprentice sorcerer Karl Mordo, was rescued by Mordo's mentor, the Ancient One, a sorcerer who protected the Earth dimension as its Sorcerer Supreme, a role Strange was destined to inherit. He offered himself as a disciple to the Ancient One, who accepted, having known of Mordo's treachery all along. The Ancient One spent years instructing Strange in the art of sorcery, teaching him how to tap the mystic powers of both himself and the world around him.
Benedict Cumberbatch will play the title role, joined by Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One and Chiwetel Ejiofor as Baron Mordo.
Rachel McAdams recently starred in Southpaw and True Detective Season 2.
The film is scheduled for release late in 2016.
