Yesterday we got word that Amy Landecker (Transparent, Louie) would be joining the cast of Marvel’s Doctor Strange film in an undisclosed role. Today it appears that yet another actor has come on board as The Wrap is reporting that martial artist and actor Scott Adkins (The Bourne Ultimatum, The Expendables 2) is the latest addition to the cast! The outlet did not report which character the actor would be playing but did reveal that “he’ll have several major action scenes featuring hand-to-hand combat.”
Adkins is set to star alongside Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays the titular character, as well as Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) as the villain Baron Mordo, Tilda Swinton (Only Lovers Left Alive) as The Ancient One and in undisclosed roles, Rachel McAdams (Southpaw, The Vow), Amy Landecker (Transparent, Louie) and Michael Stuhlbarg (Pawn Sacrifice).
Doctor Strange opens in theaters on November 4, 2016.
