Be­cause there’s noth­ing like a caped cru­sader

Toronto Life - - Culture -

It’s an un­spo­ken Hol­ly­wood rule that ev­ery high­brow Os­car nom­i­nee chases their big pres­tige drama with a frothy su­per­hero spec­ta­cle. Rachel McA­dams— whose right­eous, dish­washer-slam­ming rage in Spot­light earned her a nod last year—en­ters the Marvel Comics uni­verse this fall, star­ring along­side Bene­dict Cum­ber­batch in Doc­tor Strange, a trippy block­buster about a neu­ro­sur­geon turned sorcerer who can bend time and space. McA­dams stars as Chris­tine Palmer, a bril­liant sur­geon and long-time col­league of Dr. Strange who ini­tially keeps him grounded to the real world but even­tu­ally morphs into her own su­per­hero: the Night Nurse, a newly re­sus­ci­tated comics char­ac­ter from the ’70s. If she wields her cape as fe­ro­ciously as she slams a dish­washer door, she’s go­ing to be just fine.
