Rachel McAdams is finally joining the Marvel universe.

The True Detective star, who previously turned down the role of Pepper Potts in Iron Man, will play the female lead in the upcoming Doctor Strange movie, according to TheWrap. The publication reports that McAdams, 36, confirmed the casting rumors on Monday (Sept. 14, 2015) during an event at the Toronto International Film Festival.

The actress will star opposite of Benedict Cumberbatch, who was cast as the titular character last December. However, her actual role in the film has yet to be announced.

Tilda Swinton and Chiwetel Ejiofor are also set to star in the comic book adaptation. Meanwhile, Mads Mikkelsen is rumored to be in talks for the villain role.

Doctor Strange will be directed by Scott Derrickson. According to Marvel, the movie will “follow the story of neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a horrific car accident, discovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions.”

Shooting is slated to start shooting in November. The film currently has a Nov. 4, 2016 release date.
