Just in time for Comic Con. Some Marvel news to drop before the con gets going.

According to my sourcing here in Los Angeles, the rumor I’m hearing is that Rachel McAdams, currently starring in the second season of True Detective, has been offered the female lead in Marvel’s upcoming Doctor Strange. Scott Derrickson is directing the film based on the screenplay by Jon Sphaits. Benedict Cumberbatch is headlining as the Sorcerer Supreme.

Stay tuned as more develops and I will update the story as I find out more.

Before he met the Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Stephen Vincent Strange was an unlikeable egotistical neurosurgeon. Everything changes when a car accident limits Strange’s use of his hands, sending him on a maddening quest for a miracle cure. This origin story introduces the magical and mystical realms of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Doctor Strange is scheduled to be released in theaters next year on November 4, 2016.
