Though all eyes are on Captain America: Civil War in the wake of that Marvel Cinematic Universe entry’s killer first trailer dropping earlier this week, the wheels are already turning on further-ahead Marvel installments, like next November’s Doctor Strange.
Production is currently under way on the superhero pic, which is directed by Deliver Us From Evil helmer Scott Derrickson, and though plot details have been sparse, Oscar nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor recently answered a few questions about how his character – Baron Mordo – factors into both Doctor Strange and future McU films:
“Obviously, the idea is that you’ll be part of something that could have more incarnations, but that’s sort of not the focus. The focus is that you just want to make the film that you’re making as good as you can make it. That’s what I’m in engaged with at the moment. It’s a really fascinating project. »

Close Range, 2015.
Directed by Isaac Florentine.
A rogue soldier turned outlaw is thrust into a relentless fight with a corrupt sheriff, his obedient deputies, and a dangerous drug cartel in order to protect his sister and her young daughter.
The kicks and fisticuffs get started right away in director Isaac Florentine’s latest action film Close Range, starring underrated action star Scott Adkins from Florentine’s films Special Forces, The Shepherd: Border Patrol, Undisputed II, Undisputed III: Redemption, Ninja, and Ninja II: Shadow of a Tear. They’ve already shot their next film Boyka: Undisputed IV, so it’s more than obvious that these two guys are a match made in “B” movie heaven. It’s almost criminal that Adkins hasn’t been able to reach beyond his core, niche audience, and the same »

Ah, splendid. The finest action movie star to hail from the Midlands, Mr Scott Adkins, is set to join the Marvel cinematic universe.
The Wrap reports that Adkins, who hails from Birmingham, is the latest addition to the cast of the now-shooting Doctor Strange. His casting hasn't been confirmed, and thus we don't know quite which role he is playing. The Wrap does note though that "insiders suggest he'll have several major action scenes featuring hand-to-hand combat". As is correct.
Doctor Strange has been on location in Nepal over the past week or two, but the bulk of the shoot will take place here in the UK. The film moved back to England at the end of last week.
So far, Marvel’s Doctor Strange has collected a cast that seems like they’d be more at home at reciting Shakespeare or the brothers Coen than throwing down with supervillains. But the film’s latest addition guarantees we can count on some pretty kickass action scenes as well. Scott Adkins (The Expendables 2) has just joined the star-studded cast, […]

Filming is well underway on Marvel Studios’ Phase Three entry Doctor Strange, but the cast is still been finalised with The Wrap revealing two new additions to the already stellar cast that includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Tilda Swinton, Rachel McAdams, Mads Mikkelson, and Michael Stuhlbarg. The publication reports that Amy Landecker (t.v. show Transparent) and martial artist Scott Adkins (The Expendables 2) have signed for as yet undisclosed roles. While we can only speculate at this stage, it would be a good bet to say Landecker might be play Clea, love interest to Cumberbatch’s Master of the Mystic Arts. When McAdams was cast, popular theory was that she would be playing Clea, but persistent rumours suggest she will be playing healer to the super heroes Night Nurse. Adkins, on the other hand, is a much more exciting addition. He is an absolutely gifted martial artist, and its »

Looking at the cast of the upcoming Doctor Strange, it's already one of the best, if not the most impressive assemblage of actors that Marvel has ever put together -- it looks more like the credits for an Oscar-bait drama than a superhero adventure. Even though filming has started, they're not done adding pieces just yet, and they just upped the badass factor quite a bit by bringing ass-kicking martial artist Scott Adkins on board. Doctor Strange may be about a former surgeon turned spell-casting mystic, but that doesn.'t mean there.s no room for some good old fashioned hand-to-hand combat. Though it's not official, a source close to The Wrap says that Adkins has indeed joined the picture. His role has not been disclosed just yet, but rest assured, it likely involves pummeling the holy hell out of people in spectacular fashion. Adkins is one of »

The Wrap reports that Scott Adkins has joined the cast in an unspecified role. The actor is best known for his martial arts expertise, and sources claim that the actor will have numerous major action scenes featuring hand-to-hand combat. We don't know for sure if this character will be fighting Doctor Strange himself, but hopefully we'll get more details as production continues.
Regardless of who he's playing, Scott Adkins joins a cast that includes Benedict Cumberbatch as Stephen Strange, Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Baron Mordo, Michael Stuhlbarg as Nicodemus West and Rachel McAdams as the female lead. Rachel McAdams has been rumored to be playing Night Nurse, but that has not been confirmed. It isn't known how many other main »
Doctor Strange's fight scenes won't all be CGI tomfoolery. At least that's what we can make of the news that, per TheWrap, martial artist Scott Adkins has joined the cast of Marvel's Benedict Cumberbatch–starring project. His role hasn't been revealed, but supposedly Adkins will take part in "several major action scenes featuring hand-to-hand combat." Also unconfirmed (but does this news even need to be confirmed?): Adkins's scenes will be freakin' awesome.Why? Let's do a little bit of digging into his portfolio. First, there's this video, titled "The Way of Scott Adkins," which tells you that Scott Adkins feels very good about the way of Scott Adkins (in a way that makes other people feel very bad): Now let's save some moves. This is a spinning hook kick: And this one is called the "Ginger Ninja Trickster Grass Sampler." (I do not know what that is, »

Production is now underway on Scott Derrickson’s Doctor Strange, and yet another actor has now been added to the second of Marvel’s Phase 3 movies. That’s martial artist Scott Adkins, and while his role is being kept a secret, The Wrap reveals that he’ll “have several major action scenes featuring hand-to-hand combat.”
Adkins played the transformed version of “Deadpool” in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and took part in an impressive battle sequence which saw him pitted against Wolverine and Sabretooth. He’s also made an impact in movies like The Bourne Ultimatum, The Expendables 2, and Zero Dark Thirty. He’ll next be seen alongside Sacha Baron Cohen in The Brothers Grimsby.
Adkins is English, but could he be playing an updated version of Wong? In the Doctor Strange comic books, he’s the Sorcerer Supreme’s Asian manservant, something which wouldn’t go down too well in »

One Million K(l)icks, 2014.
A fighter with a heart of gold finds himself drawn into an Internet-streaming underground martial arts tournament.
Since Bruce Lee took on an island of fighting experts in Enter the Dragon, martial arts cinema has been incredibly popular. Van Damme and Chuck Norris become the next line of icons, before Jackie Chan’s popularity spread west from his home nation and found an audience in the Us and Europe. The evolution of the fight sequence has been interesting too.
Whilst Lee’s fight sequences still hold up very well today, particularly due to his immense on-screen charisma, the intricacy and intensity of fight sequences have developed massively. Chan introduced the world to fast, frantic sequences laced with comical brilliance and eye-popping feats of physical prowess. »
