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.”
