With Adams’s return to Doctor Stranger In The Multiverse of Madness, we have a chance to see her take on the role of Night Nurse possibly. Or she will be there for moral support. Regardless we are excited to see her return in any capacity. Marvel has yet to comment on Adams’s return nor where she fits into the new film’s storyline. Benedict Cumberbatch will be reprising his role as Dr. Strange alongside Benedict Wong, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Elizabeth Olsen and Xochitl Gomez. Sam Raimi will be directing and Scott Derrickson will be serving as executive producer.
