Bruce Campbell recently confirmed in a Q&A, that he filmed scenes for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

The reddit user tylerjb223 met up with Bruce Campbell and asked him about Doctor Strange 2. Here is what he had to say:

The deal with Doctor Strange is interesting. A majority of the film was reshot extensively, so I have no idea whats in there and what isn’t. I did a cool scene with a character thats been beloved for years, and… we’ll have to see what ends up in the movie. I don’t know if its still in there. It’s a pretty cool part.

The part to pick out here: “I did a cool scene with a character that’s been beloved for years“. Bruce doesn’t say: ‘as a character that’s been beloved for years’. Could Bruce be referring to Professor X, Doctor Strange or someone else?

Which character could Bruce Campbell be playing?

It’s been long rumoured within the fan community about these choices:


Ever since the Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy. There has been a theory that Bruce Campbell was mysterio and would have shown up in the cancelled Spider-Man 4 movie. However, Campbell did debunk this in 2019. This still leaves fans hoping that he could now be a mysterio variant in a different universe for Doctor Strange 2.

Balder the Brave

This character is also known as Balder Odinson, is an Asgardian and half-brother to Thor. This character could be a member of the movies’ Illuminati, alongside Professor X.

This part of the scene in the Doctor Strange 2 trailer is also potentially a statue for Balder the Brave.

Ash Williams

Bruce Campbell also created a tweet on April Fools Day in 2021, with an image of a script that’s believed to be fake. This is about Doctor Strange looking for the Darkhold, and he stumbles into the Evil Dead universe.

Ash Williams meets Strange and he references the Book of Necronomicon instead.

In 2007, Marvel comics released a five-issue comic book called Marvel Zombies vs. The Army of the Darkness. This was also a crossover featuring Ash Williams as well. So, could this joke tweet have been a real script afterall?

Iron Man variant

It’s possible that Campbell could be playing a Superior Iron Man, if Tom Cruise hasn’t been cast for the role. There has to be someone that’s created those new Bots, seen in the trailer taking Doctor Strange captive.

Doctor Strange variant

There could also be an older/Superior Doctor Strange in the movie being portrayed by Bruce, just like when they had Richard E. Grant play an older Loki in the Disney+ series.

It’s all quite bizarre to imagine, however, the film is called Multiverse of Madness. Any of these speculations could happen!

Bruce Campbell has appeared in 12 movies directed by Sam Raimi. Now set to be a 13, if his scenes are not deleted.
