I didn't think this could get any stranger!
Ever-since it was announced that Rachel McAdams would soon be joining the 'Doctor Strange' cast, the specific role she'd be playing has been kept a secret from us for a while now. Because of this secrecy, many of us have guessed she'd play the Night Nurse, alter ego of Marvel character, 'Linda Carter' who took care of injured superheroes.
But the time has come for us to find out who she'll be playing! Thanks, Marvel! Kevin Feige spills the beans in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly:
“Rachel McAdams plays a fellow surgeon that has a history with Strange and is his sort of lynchpin to his old life, once he steps into he role of a sorcerer. She is someone he connects with at the beginning, and reconnects with, and helps anchor his humanity.”
“Doctor Strange” executive producer Stephen Broussard also had a bit to say about her upcoming role:
“Rachel McAdams is sort of [Doctor Strange’s] contemporary in the modern-day New York world, before and after he goes on this crazy journey. So, she sees him before, she sees him after. She’s kind of this audience point of view.”
One thing's for sure, is that there'll definitely be some-sort of romance between her and Strange. Perhaps a little flirting, here and there.
Speaking of Doctor Strange, have you seen this AWESOME new concept art Marvel released?
This is pretty awesome, right? What can YOU spot in the picture?
The new concept art shows off the Sorcerer Supreme’s famous home, the Sanctum Sanctorum. Located in New York’s Greenwich Village, Stephen Strange’s townhouse is mystically warded against supernatural intruders, and contains numerous mystical artifacts. - comicbook.com
Mystical artifacts? That'd most likely by the Cloak of Levitation, and the Eye of Agomotto, which has a major role already, in the movie. Feige has teased the significance of these particular artifacts, previously:
“The Cloak of Levitation [and] the Eye of Agamotto are his two signature pieces, in this film, the Eye is a very important relic that can be quite dangerous if used in the wrong hands, because it has the ability to do any number of things, the most dangerous of which is, it can sort of manipulate probabilities. Which is also another way of saying, ‘screw around with time’ — which is part of our story. - Kevin Feige
