"Southpaw" New York Premiere -  Inside ArrivalsIf Benedict Cumberbatch is an unlikely, but awesome, choice to star in a Marvel comic book movie, then Rachel McAdams might be the perfect foil.

The actress is in early talks to join Cumberbatch in "Doctor Strange," as she revealed in an interview with the Los Angeles 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 said, adding that she's not a "comic book snob."

Her quotes are part of an article about her somewhat-unconventional movie career. After major hits like "The Notebook" and "Mean Girls," McAdams was anointed by some as Hollywood's next Julia Roberts. Instead, she's balanced big studio movies like "Sherlock Holmes" with Woody Allen movies ("Midnight in Paris") and small indies ("About Time"). Now, she's currently starring in HBO's "True Detective."

If she does jump on board "Doctor Strange," due out in November 2016, the Marvel movie would be an acting showcase. Aside from Cumberbatch, the film already boasts Tilda Swinton and Chiwetel Ejiofor in the cast.

"I try to shut out ideas about why you should do things," McAdams said of her career choices. "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."
