In addition, The Wrap’s insider mentioned that the actor will have multiple action sequences where he will be able to make use of his hand-to-hand martial arts skills.
Adkins’ role has yet to be determined, but based on multiple speculations, Adkins will either be playing a wicked henchman; one of the disciples of the Ancient One; or a version of Wong, a martial arts master who would eventually end up loyally serving Doctor Strange.
Adkins is best known for his role as Hector in “The Expendables 2”. He also appeared in “Dangerfield Hollyoaks” and “The Tournament” TV series. The actor also played a super spy in “The Bourne Ultimatum”.
Adkins will be starring alongside Chiwetel Ejiofor as Baron Mordo, Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, Tilda Swinton as the Ancient One, Michael Stuhlbarg as Dr.Nicodemus West, Rachel McAdams, and Mads Mikkelsen.
Directed by Scott Derrickson (of “Sinister” and “Deliver Us From Evil” fame), the movie is based on the screenplay written by Jon Sphaits. It will begin shooting in the UK this November before its release on 4th November 2016.
