Rachel McAdams has been reportedly offered to play a major role in the upcoming Marvel movie, “Doctor Strange,” Heroic Hollywood cited. While details about McAdams’ role in the movie are still unknown, the outlet noted that the 36-year-old actress is being offered the female lead.


Cinema Blend began speculating several theories as to which character “The Notebook” actress may play in “Doctor Strange” should she accept the offer. The outlet noted that McAdams could play the role of Clea, the niece of and disciple of one of Dr. Strange’s (Benedict Cumberbatch) enemies, Dormammu.

According to the outlet, Clea will end up betraying Dormammu and choosing to go on the Sorcerer Supreme’s side. Aside from being the doctor’s closest allies, Clea will also turn out to be Dr. Strange’s love interest.

While all these are still nothing but mere speculations, the outlet noted that “Doctor Strange” will be McAdams’ first comic book film if she lands the role. The “True Detective” actress, however, has already done action films apart from romance movies in the past, including “Sherlock Holmes.”
