Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange movie has added some muscle in the form of Scott Adkins, an actor and martial arts expert who has appeared in such films as The Bourne Ultimatum, The Expendables, and Zero Dark Thirty.

Playing a role that has yet to be revealed, Adkins will join Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, and Tilda Swinton in the film about a neurosurgeon (Cumberbatch) who survives a terrible car accident and discovers a hidden realm of magic.

Scott Derrickson (Sinister, The Day the Earth Stood Still) is directing from a script by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus). Doctor Strange is scheduled to hit theaters Nov. 4, 2016.

The Wrap first reported Adkins’ casting.
