Fans are clamoring over her role, guessing that it will be one of two roles (best summarized by Screen Rant.)

“Clea, daughter of Prince Orini and mistress of the Dark Dimension, who becomes the pupil (and lover) of Strange after he takes on the title of Sorcerer Supreme. The character was introduced into Doctor Strange comic book mythology in 1964 and has been a key part of its mythos ever since. It’s also worth noting that Clea is also the niece of Dormammu (likely played by Hannibal star Mads Mikkelsen), the demonic tyrant and natural enemy to Strange…”

or

“Morgana Blessing, who in Doctor Strange comic book mythology (where she debuted in 1981) has varied from being a friend and foe to Strange, over the years. A longtime lover for Stephen Strange, the character also has connections to Baron Mordo (reportedly, the character Chiwetel Ejiofor is playing in Derrickson’s film), which have fueled rumors that she will be portrayed by McAdams in the MCU…”

The film as written by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus) based on an earlier script draft by Joshua Oppenheimer and Thomas Dean Donnelly (Conan the Barbarian) and will also star Tilda Swinton, who’s playing the version of The Ancient One that instructs Cumberbatch’s Stephen Strange in the ways of magic. 

Doctor Strange arrives in theaters on November 4, 2016.
