RUMOR: Rachel McAdams' DOCTOR STRANGE Role Revealed And It's Not Who You Think

The cast of Doctor Strange is shaping up to be something very special indeed, with True Detective's Rachel McAdams a definite highlight. However, while most of us have assumed she's playing Clea in the Phase 3 movie, you may be surprised by the direction Marvel has taken...

With Benedict Cumberbatch set to play Doctor Strange, Tilda Swinton cast as The Ancient One, Chiwetel Ejiofor chosen as Baron Mordo, and Mads Mikkelsen rumored to be up for Dormammu, the cast of the Scott Derrickson helmed release is looking incredible to say the least. However, we still have no idea who Rachel McAdams is playing, but a new report claims that it won't be Clea! Instead, she's been chosen to take the role of Christine Palmer, a.k.a. Night Nurse. This is the role it was thought that Rosario Dawson had been cast in for Daredevil, but it was later revealed Marvel Studios had said no to that, hence why she ended up being Claire Temple. 

Oddly, this Night Nurse isn't the one from Brian K. Vaughan and Marcos Martin's critically acclaimed Doctor Strange: The Oath (Linda Carter). Instead, McAdams will be playing the version from 1973's Night Nurse #4, a switch which may have been made because she was a surgical assistant and Stephen Strange is obviously a surgeon. It's possible then that we're getting some sort of amalgam of both characters, and that's no bad thing. The Night Nurse from The Oath was a great strong female lead and that story is one of the best Doctor Strange tales of all-time, so it's a good place for Marvel to be borrowing material from and it could be that Marvel has chosen Palmer's name and backstory because it makes more sense than a nurse who patches up the MCU's superheroes.
