Doctor Strange Star Scott Adkins Admits Regret Taking Role as Villain

The actor wishes he would have held out.

Doctor Strange actor Scott Adkins revealed he regrets playing an antagonist against Benedict Cumberbatch‘s titular character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The martial artist played a minor part in the project as LucianDormammu‘s partisan – and even had a battle scene with Doctor Strange.

In an interview with The Illuminerdi, Adkins stated he now thinks he’s blown his opportunity to play a bigger part in the MCU.

Adkins said,

That is one role that I regret taking. I wish I would have held out and not taken the role, because now I feel I’ve blown my chance to be in the Marvel Universe.

Don’t throw in the towel though, Scott, after all, Gemma Chan is returning as a new character.

In the meantime, earlier this month, it was announced Rachel McAdams will be returning as Dr. Christine Palmer in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022).

The movie will also star Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch/Wanda Maximoff and needless to add, Cumberbatch as the titular Doctor Strange aka Master of the Mystic Arts.

The film will be directed by Sam Raimi, who helmed the first Spider-Man trilogy with Tobey Maguire, which is fascinating since the movie will have big ties to the third Spider-Man in the MCU.

Cumberbatch was recently announced as a fixture in the forthcoming Spidey sequel, with Strange taking on the part of Peter Parker‘s mentor following Tony Stark‘s death in Avengers: Endgame (2019).

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is expected to hit theatres on 25th March 2022.
