Marvel is hoping to have Canadian actress Rachel McAdams star as their leading lady in upcoming comic book movie Dr. Strange
, according to Variety
Earlier this year, we got excited when news broke that Tilda Swinton would be taking on a traditionally male role
for the upcoming film.
Though they’re still in the early stages of putting together Dr. Strange
, The Notebook
star confirmed to L.A. Times
that she was, indeed, in talks with the studio about this role. The role in which she’d take on as leading lady is still unknown — and everything’s kind of still up in the air. But they have a bit
of time as Dr. Strange
isn’t set to come out until November 2016.
McAdams has taken on all kinds of diverse roles throughout her career — from being a rom com goddess (who seems to love being a time traveler’s wife in both A Time Traveler’s Wife
and About Time
) to taking on more comedic roles like in The Hot Chick
and Mean Girls
to currently starring as detective Ani Bezzerides
in the second season of HBO’s True Detective
Marvel’s Dr. Strange
is not to be mistaken with sci-fi series Dr. Who
— the show that’s also making headlines today as Netflix prepares to offer series 8 on their website in August.
It’s all rather exciting — isn’t it?
