Considering that Doctor Strange 2 deals with the multiverse, Campbell could technically play everyone in the future. As with the Spider Man film, he could appear as a completely original character for one of the leads to come across. It’s also possible he could be back in one of his Spider Man consider trilogy roles Spider-Man 2 star Alfred Molina returns as Doctor Octopus. For all we know, Campbell could even appear as Ash from the Evil Dead universe, even if that seems the least likely possibility.

There must be SOME character to challenge the good doctor …” Campbell tweeted at the time. Considering he hasn’t been announced as part of the main cast, it’s likely that Campbell will appear in a cameo similar to the Spider Man films as opposed to starring antagonists.
