The 'True Detective' star Rachel McAdams has finally confirmed her role in Doctor Strange, an adaptation of the Marvel comic.

She is all set to star as the female lead opposite Benedict Cumberbatch, although Marvel has not yet confirmed the role the actress would be playing in her first super hero flick.

The title character, Doctor Strange, made his appearance in the comic in 1963. He is said to be a Neurologist whose career was destroyed and later serves as the Sorcerer Supreme— the primary protector of Earth against magical and mystical threats.

Tilda Swinton and Chiwetel Ejiofor are also going to be a part of the film which is scheduled for release by November 2016.
