Bruce Campbell hints he has a cameo in Doctor Weird in tea Multiverse of madness.

A user on Reddit had a meet-up with the actor and asked him if he was going to appear in the Doctor Weird sequel, considering his history and friendship with director Sam Raimi. “The deal with Doctor Strange is interesting,” Campbell answered. “A majority of the film was reshot extensively, so I have no idea what’s in there and what isn’t. I did a cool scene with a character that’s been beloved for years, and… we’ll have to see what ends up in the movie. I don’t know if it’s still in there. It’s a pretty cool part.”

Campbell and Raimi became friends in high school and have since worked together on a number of projects over the years, beginning with the cult-favorite Evil Dead horror trilogy. Campbell also had cameo roles in each of Raimi’s Spiderman movies, playing a ring announcer who introduces Spider-Man at a wrestling match in the first film, a snooty usher who antagonizes Peter Parker in the second and a French maître d’ in the third. During the planning stages of Raimi’s unmade Spiderman 4Campbell was set to play a much more significant role as the supervillain Quentin Beck/Mysterio.

When asked which of his Spiderman cameos was his favorite, Campbell answered, “I love them all, but the announcer was great. I gave Spider-Man his name and his identity. I feel like my character was responsible for most of the things in his life. I named him in the first, I was basically the main antagonist in the 2nd one, and then came around to help him in the 3rd one.”

Recently, Campbell reprized his role as Ash Williams across three seasons of Ash vs. Evil Dead on Starz, which he and Raimi produced. After the series was canceled in 2018, Campbell announced his retirement from playing Ash. “Whatever the cliche phrase is, I left it all on table. I’ve got nothing else to give,” he explained. “The three seasons were the longest seasons of my life. If you saw the emails pleading with various directors that were like, ‘Hey, my knee’s not working right. Be careful about tomorrow. Let’s have the stunt guy nearby. Hey, I can ‘t run anymore.’ It just was an endless physical struggle.” Campbell will still serve as executive producer on the fifth film in the franchise, Evil Dead risewhich is set to release in 2022.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness arrives in theaters on May 6.
