DOCTOR STRANGE Actor Scott Adkins Wishes He'd Waited For A Shot At Kraven The Hunter In SPIDER-MAN - Exclusive

DOCTOR STRANGE Actor Scott Adkins Wishes He'd Waited For A Shot At Kraven The Hunter In SPIDER-MAN - <font color=red>Exclusive</font>

Martial artist and actor Scott Adkins recently spoke with us about his upcoming film Max Cloud, and when asked about his role in Doctor Strange, he told us he wished he had waited to play Kraven instead!

Scott Adkins is well known for his extensive martial arts background and his work alongside legendary action stars such as Jean Claude Van Damme. He stars as the titular character in the upcoming video game movie Max Cloud, which launches later this month.

During our exclusive interview with the actor, we asked about his role as Lucian the Zealot in Doctor Strange. However, he was quick to admit that he wished he had passed on the role and waited for a more prominent character in the Marvel Universe.

Luckily, the upcoming multi-verse plot spanning Spider-Man 3 and Doctor Strange in the Multi-Verse of Madness allow the opportunity for actors to play multiple roles/roles to be played by multiple actors. That especially excites Scott, who reveals that his grandmother bought him Spider-Man comics to help him learn to read. With the character so close to his heart, he has his eye on one role in particular: Kraven the Hunter.

"You know what, honestly, I wish I hadn't played that part. To be honest with you, I feel like, in hindsight, I probably should have waited for something better. I'm always too honest. This is probably going to be your headline, but you know what I mean? It's like the multi-verse, and they're going to bring back Lucian and the Zealots? I don't think they're going to do that. I should have waited for something better. They're making so many movies, I suppose they're going to have to regurgitate some actors and I'm barely recognizable. I mean, I had some dialogue, and they cut it out of the movie. It's like, 'thanks a lot guys.'

I'm a massive Marvel comic book fan, especially Spider-Man. Spider-Man was the one for me when I was a kid. I didn't do very well at school. I wasn't that interested in it. I was having trouble. I was behind with reading, apparently. So my grandmother would go and get the comic books. So every weekend would go to my Nan's and there'd be a load of Spider-Man comics. And yeah, I got well into Spider-Man, and he's always been the guy for me. I'd play Kraven the Hunter, apparently. With Yuri Boyka, there's a lot of Kraven going on in that guy. I mean, I'll pull that one off no problem. Come on. But I'll tell you how you get a part; you never publicly state that you want it. Because then you'll never get it. So I'm not playing with that. Headline: Scott Adkins doesn't want it."

Hear our entire chat with Scott on Literary Joe's Inner Child Podcast below. We've also included the poster, trailer, and synopsis for the upcoming Max Cloud movie.
