While Steven S. DeKnight doesn't mention Doctor Strange specifically by name, Linda Carter does have a connection to the character in the comics. The Night Nurse originally had her own comic book series in the 1970s, but she was re-introduced in Brian Bendis' run of Daredevil comics in 2004. Linda Carter was then brought over to Brian K. Vaughan's 2006 comic miniseries entitled Doctor Strange: The Oath. It's worth noting that the first issue of that series will be reprinted over the Halloween season.
Rachel McAdams confirmed to The Los Angeles Times earlier this week that she is in talks with Marvel, but it's still, "super-early days," and she doesn't "know where that's gonna go, if anywhere at all." She didn't confirm which character she is in talks for, but it's certainly possible that she could be playing Linda Carter. If she does sign on, the actress will join a cast that includes Benedict Cumberbatch as the title character, Dr. Stephen Strange, Tilda Swinton as the Ancient One and Chiwetel Ejiofor as Baron Mordo.Read More
We're sure to see some gigantic movie news hit as Comic Con kicks off this Wednesday for Preview Night, but we're already starting to hear some rumblings that may surface over the next few days. Marvel is not bringing any of its movies to the San Diego Convention Center this year, but that doesn't mean they won't confirm some of their impending casting as the event rolls on. They may even do so during, or right after, Warner Bros. and DC's big planned Q&A on Saturday morning just to steal some of their thunder. One of the items Marvel might confirm during SDCC? The female lead for their 2016 superhero adventure Doctor Strange. It seems Heoric Hollywood already has the scoop, claiming that Rachel McAdams has been made an offer.
Unfortuantely, no further information about the role is revealed. It is speculated that Rachel McAdams, who is currently starring on HBO's True Detective Season 2, is wanted as the love interest. There is no mention of the character at this time, though many believe it will either be Clea, or possibly Morganna Blessing. If she agrees to the contract stipulations, which would see her appearing in a number of Marvel movies, Rachel McAdams will be starring opposite Benedict Cumberbatch as the title character Doctor Stephen Strange, aka The Sorcerer Supreme.Read More
While breaking up with a significant other is certainly hard to do, for Brian Gilcrest (Bradley Cooper), it's even harder to remember why, in a new clip from Aloha. Aside from the first trailer released back in February, we haven't seen much from director Cameron Crowe's romantic comedy, but with the May 29 release date exactly one month away, we can be sure to see even more footage. This scene features Brian reuniting with his ex-girlfriend Tracy (Rachel McAdams), as he casually mentions that he can't remember why they broke up, which leads to Tracy giving him a brief refresher about the events that transpired.
The story follows Brian, a celebrated military contractor who returns to the site of his greatest career triumphs and re-connects with a long-ago love (Rachel McAdams) while unexpectedly falling for the hard-charging Air Force watchdog (Emma Stone) assigned to him. Earlier plot descriptions hinted at mysterious "island forces" also coming into play, which are teased in this scene when, during their brief argument, Brian notices a door swaying open on its own. We haven't seen much about the mystical nature of this story in this clip or the trailer, but perhaps we'll see more in the weeks to come.Read More
If you were driving through Downtown Los Angeles yesterday, and suddenly felt like you'd entered an episode of HBO's hit drama series True Detective, it's because maybe you did. The three principle players in True Detective Season 2 were in the heart of the city this week, shooting new episodes for Nic Pizzolatto's acclaimed crime saga. And we have a first look at stars Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch and Rachel McAdams.
True Detective Season 2 is an all-new story not tied to the first season, and will center on crime and the occult in some of the lesser known areas of California. This time, we will follow three very different police officers and one career criminal as they become entangled in a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder.Read More
