We may just have learnt what Rachel McAdams mysterious role is in the upcoming Marvel movie, “Doctor Strange.” Once McAdams was confirmed for the role, the internet has since exploded with speculation what character she could possibly play. According to the latest reports, McAdams will be the marvel comics character, ‘Night Nurse.’
“Doctor Strange” follows the origin of earth’s most powerful magician, Stephen Strange, sorcerer supreme. The titular role is being played by dishy Brit Benedict Cumberbatch, who will go from neurosurgery to sorcery in the film.
When McAdams was confirmed as a cast, most of us assumed that she would be portraying ‘Clea.” She is another magician in the Marvel universe and long time love interest of Doctor Strange. Not so, says the latest report from Latino Review, who are claiming that McAdams will be Night Nurse, Christine Palmer.
“Night Nurse” is the common moniker for three characters in the marvel-verse. The most famous, Linda Carter, fulfilled a role similar to Rosario Dawson’s ‘Claire Temple’ from Marvel’s “Daredevil.” She is commonly seen in the comics treating injured superheroes, and even had a short fling with Doctor Strange, and helped him recover the cure for cancer.
McAdams purported character, Christine Palmer, will probably fill a similar vacancy in the MCU, although it is anybody’s guess why they won’t call her Linda Palmer and be done with it. Especially when Daredevil showrunner, Steven S. Knight has already confirmed that Marvel has plans to use that character in the movies.
But before you fly off to buy all the ‘Night Nurse’ comics and Night Nurse action-figures, it is worth noting that this speculation is currently on the basis of a single unnamed source from Latino Review, and there was not yet been any official confirmation.
We will find out for sure when “Doctor Strange” enchants his way into theaters come Oct 28, 2016.
