Doctor Strange entered production last week, and since then we’ve gotten our first look at Benedict Cumberbatch and Chiwetel Ejiofor as Stephen Strange and Baron Mordo, respectively. The cast, of which still has yet to be confirmed by Marvel, is continuing to expand. Most recently, it was reported earlier this week that Amy Landecker had joined the cast. As it stands, her role has not been revealed yet, but popular theories suggest Clea, Umar, or Morgan La Fey. And now today, we have yet another cast addition to speculate over.
The Wrap is reporting that martial artist turned actor, Scott Adkins, has joined the cast. Here is how they described the role,
Adkins’ role is being kept under wraps, though insiders suggest he’ll have several major action scenes featuring hand-to-hand combat.
This seems to show that Adkins’ character will be featured during Strange’s training with The Ancient One (Tilda Swinton). Whether he will be a friend or foe to our hero remains to be seen. Share your theories on who he could play in the comments below.
Doctor Strange is scheduled to hit theaters on November 4, 2016.
