The film has two female main characters: The Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) and Dr Palmer (Rachel McAdams). They even 'meet' in that Dr Palmer tries to resuscitate The Ancient One. They never speak.

2 women, one of which the role was initially considered to be a man (Ancient One)- the other is resigned to a half-assed love interest.
Unfortunate failure

It is unfortunate because it could have been so easily fixed with the amount of women training at the magic school and other women in the ER with Rachel McAdams character. At Least both McAdams and Swinton are not relegated to solely typical roles .. but with all the jobs they have on set, they really just need to add one more to look out for this stuff :-p

It's annoying because the ancient one is a great character, who does talk about other things, but sadly Rachel Mcadam's is the one of the worst female characters in the MCU in terms of how underdeveloped she is.
