Evil Dead star and B-movie legend Bruce Campbell continues to play terribly coy regarding a reunion with director Sam Raimi in the upcoming Marvel sequel Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. While appearing live at the Fair Oaks Drive-in Theater in Middletown, Campbell was asked about future projects to which he replied, “maybe a movie with Sam Raimi that he may be directing.”
“I can only give you a strange answer. I can answer that, but only with a strange answer. Am I in Doctor Strange 2? The strange answer is… linoleum.”
Right, so he’s definitely in Doctor Strange 2 than. What exactly his reference to linoleum means is a mystery. Perhaps Campbell is playing a talking linogel who helps The Sorcerer Supreme on his journey across the multiverse…
rumors about Bruce Campbellappear in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness have been circulating since Raimi was brought on board to lead the project for Marvel Studios. Campbell is of course no stranger to the world of Marvel or Raimi’s work, which certainly plays a role in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness a foregone conclusion. The actor played different roles in all three Raimi’s Spider Man movies, with Campbell dressing up as a wrestling announcer, a theater sitter and a frustrating maître d’, with the actor still best known for his role as Ash in Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead franchisee.
The actor has been offering cryptic answers regarding a… Doctor Strange cameo, who recently said the rumors are solid. “I’d say that’s a pretty good rumor. I don’t think I will be charged for it. That’s a pretty good rumor, yes.’
“Look, I think it’s a rule that… Sam Raimi, his movies aren’t good if I’m not in them. If Sam wants a good movie, he’ll put me in it,” Campbell joked. “But you never know [with] these epic movies what will stay or disappear while telling these huge stories so i don’t know. That’s why I keep it cryptic because (a) I don’t want to be charged, but (b) I don’t want to say, ‘Yeah, hey, tune in!’ and then they say, ‘Where were you, idiot?’ But I always like to work with my old friend, Mr. Director.”
While specific plot details are still largely unknown, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will clearly introduce the public to a previously unexplored side of the MCU, the multiverse. In the film, Benedict Cumberbatch will reprise his role as The Sorcerer Supreme, and Chiwetel Ejiofor will also return as friend and foe, Karl Mordo. While director Scott Derrickson was expected to return to direct the project, it ultimately fell through and instead… Spider Man and Evil Dead director Sam Raimi takes the reins.
The sequel will take place after the events of Avengers: Endgame and WandaVision, and will also star Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff AKA The Scarlet Witch, Benedict Wong as Wong, and Xochitl Gomez as America Chavez. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is scheduled to be released in the United States on March 25, 2022, as part of Phase Four of the MCU. This comes to us courtesy of JunkBox.
