Doctor Strange’s principal cast has been known for the better part of the year: Benedict Cumberbatch as the eponymous protagonist, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Baron Mordo, and Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One. Rachel McAdams was then added a few months ago, and last week brought us two new pieces of character information: Boardwalk Empire star Michael Stuhlbarg reportedly playing Dr. Nicodemus West and Baron Mordo’s minion from the comics Kaecilius possibly playing a role in the opening minutes of the movie. These are certainly good additions, but there’s plenty of room for other big characters from Doctor Strange’s supporting cast.

Now that the movie has begun production, we’ll be hearing more character announcements in the coming months, and like the other Marvel movies, most (if not all) will be pre-existing characters from the comics. Among the players who are often seen in Doctor Strange’s adventures, we’ve selected the five most important people that the Marvel Cinematic Universe needs to introduce, be they ally or enemy. Granted, we’re not expecting all of these individuals to appear in the first movie, but each of them is too good not to be used at some point in the Sorcerer Supreme’s film series.

Doctor Strange is the master of the mystic arts, but even he can’t protect the world on his own. Fortunately, he has his manservant Wong to help him out. After Stephen Strange completed his training with The Ancient One, the elderly master sent Wong to serve as Strange’s servant in the United States. In addition to being a skilled martial artist, Wong has accumulated a deep knowledge of magic while being with Strange, though he isn’t actually able to harness it. Beyond simply helping Strange around the Sanctum Sanctorum, Wong has become one of Doctor Strange’s closest allies by helping him in several key battles. If fans are lucky, Doctor Strange will have Wong play an important role as well, though perhaps his relationship with the Sorcerer Supreme will be on more equal footing in live action. Strange can handle the magic side of things, Wong can handle taking out any non-magical bad guys that happen to come their way.
