With Rachel McAdams joining Marvel’s Doctor Strange, many believed she was playing a character named Clea, Stephen Strange’s main love interest in the comics. Now Latino Review is reporting that McAdams is actually playing Christine Palmer, also known as “Night Nurse”. After Rosario Dawson’s character (Claire Temple) appeared on the Netflix series Daredevil, many believed she was Night Nurse.
However, on July 28th, 2015 Daredevil’s showrunner, Steven DeKnight said “The feature side had plans for her down the road,” DeKnight explains (via /Film), “so that was the only time we ran into a conflict. So we just used another name.”
With the news that Rachel McAdams is possibly playing Christine Palmer (Night Nurse), it seems that this is what DeKnight was talking about. Christine Palmer is not the original Night Nurse, Linda Carter was the first to appear in the comics. Why McAdams isn’t playing the Linda Carter Night Nurse is still a mystery. For more news, stay tuned.
