There's a real magic in Marvel's superhero movie casting so far, and that's going to be especially true in the story of Sorcerer Supreme Doctor Strange.

A-listers like Jon Hamm and Johnny Depp have been rumored to be up for the exciting role of a surgeon whose damaged hands lead him to discover an aptitude for magic.

And now, Jared Leto is on the top of everyone's list after his Oscar-winning performance in Dallas Buyers Club.

So is it a match made in heaven?

Marvel is reportedly close to signing a deal with director Scott Derrickson to bring the comic book to life. This tells us two things:

One- As Scott is known for his horror hits Sinister and The Exorcism Of Emily Rose, this could be Marvel's darkest movie yet.

Two- Once that deal closes, it probably won't be long before the hunt for a star concludes as well. So we guess we'll know for sure soon!
