As the premiere draws for the Marvel's "Doctor Strange" rumors about actress Rachel McAdams becoming the badass "Night Nurse", the go-to person of wounded vigilantes and heroes, was not confirmed by the executive producer himself. McAdams is playing the role of Christine Palmer who is a colleague of Dr. Stephen Strange, the titular superhero of the movie, who happens to be his love interest and link to the past.

Rumors are wrong

Despite the still ongoing speculations that aside from the expected role of the actress, she might take on a way cooler persona later down the line of the movie. Mcadams has not confirmed anything about the circulating stories about the '"Night Nurse" character, choosing to be mum about it, instead of addressing the issue.

"I will say that that story line does not play into the movie. It's just as much fun for us as it is for the fans to speculate about that." Kevin Feige of Marvel Studio said in an interview with Entertainment Week who was given a no holds barred access to the studio and its stars. When casted as Christine Palmer, the actress's fans immediately speculated about her becoming the "Night Nurse."

Another one of Marvel's high budget film this year

"Doctor Strange" is about an arrogant but talented surgeon who got into a life-altering accident. Needless to say, he lost his ability and it drove him to his knees. Wanting to take a hold of his life again, Stephen Strange, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, went on a trip to gather his wits, there he met an ancient practitioner of sorcery and became a student.

To hit box office

With the movie set to hit the theaters on 26th of October, less than two weeks from now, "Doctor Strange" is in full throttle promotion mode hoping to reach their $60-$75 million marker, hoping to supass Captain America and Thor. The movie also stars Tilda Swinton, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Stuhlbarg, Amy Landecker, Scott Adkins and Mads Mikkelsen.

Big possibility of the actress becoming Frau Badass

Despite these statements, theories of McAdams becoming Night Nurse still will not die, banking on the fact that Feige has not totally slammed the idea. He just said that as of now, that certain storyline does not figure out yet. Night Nurse is about a woman who treats superheroes when they are wounded, she roams the streets at night looking for this defenders of humanity.
