Marvel Studios Hall H PanelThere are so many fan theories surrounding the MCU that Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige doesn't have time to respond to them all, but thankfully, he does address some.

The exec has finally opened up about speculation that "Doctor Strange" character Christine Palmer (Rachel McAdams) will take on her own alter ego. Some fans expect she'll become Night Nurse, a role from the comic books that involves tending to injured superheroes. It doesn't seem like a huge stretch, after all. The Night Nurse comic book series focused on three roommates who worked at a New York City Hospital, and one of them was named Christine Palmer. The similarities extend to the movie character's skill in healing, though she's a doctor rather than a nurse.

When asked about the idea, Feige gave an interesting but perhaps not altogether surprising answer: "I will say that that story line does not play into the movie," he told Entertainment Weekly.

That's sort of a no, but it's also not. His response only definitively tells us that Palmer won't double as Night Nurse in "Doctor Strange"; however, plans could change beyond that.

Feige admitted as much himself. "It's just as much fun for us as it is for the fans to speculate about that," he said of the character's future.

And speculate we certainly will.

"Doctor Strange" opens on Nov. 4.
