Rachel McAdams is believed to be eyeing up a role in Marvel's 'Doctor Strange', although she hasn't confirmed anything yet

The 'Southpaw' actress has a tight schedule, but hinted "it's still super-early days" with regards to playing the female lead in the film, which she would star alongside British actor Benedict Cumberbatch, if she agreed to take on the part.

She told the LA Times: "it's still super-early days, and I don't know where that's gonna go, if it's gonna go anywhere at all."

She added: "I try to shut out ideas about why you should do things. Trying to do good architecture and really designing a career? There's some attention to be paid to that, but I don't think it's everything."

The cast of 'Doctor Strange' includes the 'Sherlock' actor and 'Trainwreck's' Tilda Swinton and will begin filming in November.
