Rachel McAdams, who’s my dream casting for Lois Lane and has been for about 10 years, has confirmed recent chatter that she’s been approached to enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Our buddy El Mayimbe first reported it as a hot rumor over on his site a few weeks ago, and now the actress has gone ahead and told the L.A. Times that she’s in early talks to join Benedict Cumberbatch in Marvel’s Doctor Strange.

When asked about the rumors, all the actress would say is, “It’s still super-early days, and I don’t know where that’s gonna go, if it’s gonna go anywhere at all.” So it’s definitely in the works, but too early to tell. 

Doctor Strange is thought to be a centerpiece of Marvel’s Phase III plans, as the studio prepares a new roster of heroes to base its future Avengers films on. It’s also expected to help usher magical and supernatural elements into the MCU, to go along with all the cosmic fun that’s on the way, as the studio continues to expand and stretch out its storytelling possibilities. 

Would you like to see McAdams as the female lead of Doctor Strange? Are you getting hyped for the film’s November 4, 2016 release date? Sound off.
