Actress Rachel McAdams will return for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness after months of speculation, Deadline reports. She’ll join a host of other returning actors, including star Benedict Cumberbatch.

Palmer acted as a grounding character for Strange as he left behind his career as a brain surgeon to become Sorcerer Supreme.
