Scott Adkins is widely known for his roles in super hit movies like Avengement and the Undisputed series among others. He is trained in various martial arts and is one of the hot-shots in all of Hollywood.
In the fourth part of the much acclaimed John Wick movie series, the Undisputed actor portrayed Killa Harkan, who is the villain and leader of the German Branch of the movie saga and also John Wick’s mortal enemy. While John Wick, who is played by Keanu Reeves, killed Adkin’s character in a breathtaking fight sequence in John Wick: Chapter 4, the martial artist claims he would still love to return to the $1B franchise for any spin-offs or prequels requiring his character. When asked about the same, he said,
“Of course, I would [return]. It was a fantastic opportunity to be a part of the John Wick franchise. If they were to do a spin-off that involved other characters, of course, I would say yes. I’m not stupid.”
As of now, there is no news about any spin-offs or prequels for the remarkable movie series. However, thanks to the actor’s confirmation, we can certainly hope to see Scott Adkins in any such movie/series from the franchise in the near future.

Scott Adkins Found Killa Harkan’s Character ‘Cool’
Even though the character he plays is a brutal villain, however, Scott Adkins still found Killa Harkan’s character to be ‘cool’. Initially, when cast for the role, the martial artist was quite worried about the challenge he’ll have to face while portraying the character as he had to wear a fat suit for his role.
Sharing his first reaction to playing Killa Harkan, the Undisputed actor said,
“My first thought was ‘Oh s***, nobody is going to recognize me’ – but after five minutes, I was like ‘this will be great because it’s more of a challenge to create a cool character like that.’”
Along with revealing how he felt about his character, Scott Adkins also openly admired and commended Keanu Reeves for his passionate commitment to the John Wick franchise.
However, even after wearing a fat suit, the actor displayed great effort in fighting, showing off some super impressive moves in the breathtaking fight sequence with Keanu Reeves in John Wick: Chapter 4. Looking at his brilliant acting and fighting skills, there is no wonder Adkins is much loved for his roles in almost every movie he has starred in!
