Bruce Campbell joked on Twitter about playing a villain in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
After the recent news that Sam Raimi is confirmed to direct Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, his long-time collaborator Bruce Campbell tweeted about appearing in the sequel as a villain. The pair have worked together since It’s Murder! in 1977 and some fans will remember the star’s cameos throughout Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy. Campbell also notably appeared in the director’s legendary horror series Evil Dead as Ash Williams.
The Evil Dead star joked on Twitter that there must be a character to go up against Doctor Strange in the sequel. Fans on Twitter took this in a number of ways, some suggested that Campbell could be a great fit for over-the-top Marvel villains like Mephisto or Nightmare. Others joked that Ash Williams could fall through a portal with Doctor Strange helping him fight the Deadites from Evil Dead. Even if Campbell doesn’t get a villain role in the sequel, it would be great to at least see a cameo from the star to keep up the long-running collaboration.
Huh. Surely, there must be SOME character to challenge the good Doctor… https://t.co/1ZTpfoE3te
