Where Sam Raimi goes, his “long lost brother” Bruce Campbell will surely follow, so we always knew he would evil Dead The icon would appear in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Thanks to its memorable walk-on parts in the original Spiderman trilogy, Campbell has built an almost Stan Lee-like side career making Marvel cameos. But the actor has a tongue-in-cheek explanation for why his Doctor Strange 2 Character might be his most important yet.
Campbell shows up during Strange’s (Benedict Cumberbatch) and America Chavez’s (Xochitl Gomez) trip to Earth-838 as a mouthed street vendor who runs a stand called The Pizza Poppa and verbally bashes the wizard – until Strange spells him out, further himself in hitting the air face. The film’s final post-credits scene then returns to Campbell’s character once the spell finally wears off. In a fourth-wall-breaking moment, he looks into the camera and yells, “It’s finally over!”
