Marvel is building quite a unique cast for next year’s Doctor Strange. So far we have Benedict Cumberbatch as the titular character, and Chiwetel Ejiofor and Tilda Swinton are all but officially confirmed to play Baron Mordo and The Ancient One, respectively. Now a new rumor says that current True Detective star Rachel McAdams has been offered the lead female role in the Sorcerer Supreme’s cinematic debut. Unfortunately, no other details were provided about her character’s identity, but we have a few guesses.

Over his 50 years conjuring spells on the printed page, Doctor Strange has built up a diverse (if not the biggest) supporting cast. Not many of them have been women, but there have been a few that have left their mark, both as romantic interests and general allies. Then of course we might consider the possibility that Marvel might want to bring someone brand new to the table. Keeping all this in mind, if McAdams has truly been offered a role, here are the characters she could end up playing.

Clea
Doctor Strange hasn’t had a lot of luck in the romance department, but his greatest love without a doubt is Clea, daughter of Umar and niece of Dormammu, the Sorcerer Supreme’s most powerful adversary. When Stephen was traversing the Dark Dimension, Clea betrayed her uncle and became his closet ally and future wife. Although they briefly lived together on Earth, most their time was spent in the Dark Dimension, and eventually Clea decided to stay there to lead the resistance against Dormammu. Like Doctor Strange, she is well practiced in the mystical arts, so if McAdams is playing her, she’ll be busting out a lot of the same magical moves that are in his arsenal. Considering that Clea is the most well known female in Doctor Strange’s supporting cast, if you had to bet on what McAdams’ role will be in the film, you’d be wise to put your money on this sorceress.
