The solicitation for a set of Doctor Strange Minimates figures has revealed the identities of both Mads Mikkelsen's villain, and Rachel McAdams's female lead. 

Per the solicit, which was released to Newsarama in advance by Diamond Select Toys, Mads Mikkelsen's villain is Kaecilius, who in comic books is a henchman of Baron Mordo and a servant of Dormammu. Whether this reveal was avoided because his connection to Mordo - who is ostensibly Strange's ally in the film, despite being his comic book enemy - might give away too much about Mordo's role in the story is unknown.

Meanwhile, Rachel McAdams will play Christine Palmer, A.K.A. the Night Nurse, a nurse who helps heal superheroes and who has occasionally been a love interest to Doctor Strange. McAdams was seen as a nurse in the first Doctor Strange trailer.
