Rachel’s character hasn’t been confirmed, but it’s expected to be fellow sorceress and love-interest Clea.
Variety previously reported that Mads Mikkelsen, who almost played the villain in Thor: The Dark World, is also being looked at for a villainous role. The character could possibly be Clea’s evil hot-headed father Dormammu.
