Earlier this month, actress Rachel McAdams revealed in a Los Angeles Times profile piece that she was in "super early" talks to reportedly co-star in Marvel Studio's upcoming Doctor Strange movie, but as it turns out there's more to the story.
The LA Times journalist who wrote the piece, Amy Kaufman, posted on Twitter the actress's full comments about Doctor Strange and her interest in the growing number of comic book characters and series being developed into film -- and one particular DC series in particular.

Although perhaps best known for the Gaiman/McKean miniseries in 1988, the character is a long-time heroine of DC Comics going back to the early 1970s. The character appeared recently in Justice League Dark, as well as Animal Man, Constantine and the Trinity of Sin series.
There's never been any substantial talk of an adaptation of the 1988 miniseries, but the character did appear in an episode of Batman: The Brave & The Bold and was in consideration for the second season of Constantine before it's cancellation.
Bringing this full circle however, at one point in the early 2000s Neil Gaiman was in talks to write a Doctor Strange movie with Guillermo Del Toro directing, but the project fell through.
