Rachel McAdams’ new MCU outfit is revealed in fresh pictures from Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, in which she will reprise her role as Christine Palmer.
McAdams made her cinematic debut in filmmaker Scott Derrickson’s Doctor Strange (2016), a film that explored the concept of the universe, which would later play a key role in Phase 4 of the MCU.
McAdams will reprise her role in Sam Raimi’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness after voicing her character in Disney+’s What If…?
Rachel McAdams’ New MCU Costume
Benedict Cumberbatch, Benedict Wong, and Chiwetel Ejiofor, in addition to McAdams, will reprise their roles from the original film. Elizabeth Olsen, as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch, and Xochitl Gomez, as heroine America Chavez, will join them.
The sequel will start up after the events of WandaVision, Loki, and Spider-Man: No Way Home and see Doctor Strange attempt to reclaim the power of the Time Stone following its destruction in Avengers: Endgame, with a script penned by Loki creator Michael Waldron. Strange, on the other hand, accidentally unleashes an unspeakable evil when Baron Mordo reappears. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness concluded production this month.
Disney/Marvel Studios has provided the first look at McAdams in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, following the release of the first trailer for the film. Strange, Chavez, and Palmer appear in a new image, which exposes Palmer’s new MCU costume (as Night Nurse?).
Take a look at the following:
Palmer was Strange’s former lover turned friend in the first Doctor Strange film, and he continued to support him following his accident and journey into the world of the mystic arts. What If…? showed a universe in which Strange lost Palmer instead of his hands in the tragic accident, driving him crazy as he sought the power to undo her death.
Doctor Strange Supreme/Evil Strange, the resulting character, would go on to play a big role in the first season of What If…? and appears in live action at the end of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. It’s possible, however, that this is just another Strange variety.
