Director Scott Derrickson Will 'Bring Some of His Horror Element' to "Doctor Strange"

When "Doctor Strange" wends his way to movie theaters this November, director Scott Derrickson will maintain the character's sense of mysticism and horror -- at least according to star Scott Adkins, who appears in an as-yet-unknown role in the film.

"This is going to show that other dimension side. I'm sure [director] Scott Derrickson's going to bring some of his horror element into it as well," Adkins told The Huffington Post. "It's gonna be a different version of a Marvel comic."

"What's great about Marvel is they don't just make superhero movies," he added. "They make a different genre out of a different superhero film. Whether it's a thriller, a straight-up action movie or political thriller, they're likely to choose a different genre for different heroes, and we're gonna see some psychedelic stuff in this one. Very exciting."

The "Bourne Ultimatum" star also apologized for his role in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," where he appeared in an uncredited role as Weapon XI. "I was part of the problem. I was part of the abomination of that character," he said. "I'd like to take this opportunity to tell you and all your readers that it wasn't my idea. I was doing what I was told by 20th Century Fox."

Directed by Scott Derrickson and starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton, Chiwitel Ejiofor and more, "Doctor Strange" opens on November 4, 2016.
