With everyone focused on all that Ant-Man drama, Marvel pulled a fast one and has apparently locked down a director for its long-rumored Doctor Strange flick. So, with that business out of the way, the big question becomes, who should play the Sorcerer Supreme?

There have already been a few names bandied around the rumor mill, from Johnny Depp to (most recently) Jared Leto, so we’ve decided to break down a few of the contenders — plus some actors we think should be contenders.

Whenever Marvel does get around to locking down an actor, this casting decision will prove to be a big one. Much as Guardians of the Galaxy plans to open up the cosmic edge of the Marvel Universe, Doctor Strange will be a doorway into the mystical corner that has yet to be explored. So they really have to get this right.

Check out our list below, and let us know who you’re pulling for in the comments.
