Bruce Campbell hints at possible Doctor Strange in Madness Cameo multiverse
Over the weekend, Bruce Campbell posted on Twitter that he had a blast “working in a certain city, with a certain director on a certain film with a certain actor…” The photo Campbell shared was of London , in the same location as director Sam Raimi and Doctor Strange Star Benedict Cumberbatch is currently filming the highly anticipated Marvel sequel, hinting Campbell could make an appearance in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Campbell and the director first worked together in the 1981 cult horror classic Evil death, written and directed by Raimi and starring Campbell. The actor has since made several cameos in Raimi’s projects, including his Spider Man trilogy, and it looks like he might add the next one Doctor Strange film to his list. You can check out Campbell’s post below!

Cumberbatch will then reprise his role as Dr Stephen Strange in the movie directed by Tom Holland Spider-Man 3 in addition to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. The sequel is described as the MCU’s first horror film with the Oscar nominee returning as Wizard Supreme and Elizabeth Olsen also appearing as Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch. According to Kevin Feige, the Disney + shows WandaVision and Loki will both have a direct impact on the events of the Doctor Strange after.
Doctor Strange and Scarlet Witch appeared in Avengers: Endgame, where they were both last seen attending Tony Stark’s funeral. Loki also appeared in End of Game and was last seen following the events of the Avengers’ first battle in New York City, where he escapes with the Tesseract Cube.
Originally slated to be directed by Scott Derrickson, the sequel is now directed by Spider-Man’s Sam Raimi with Loki chief writer Michael Waldron having rewritten the screenplay which was first written by Turning scribe Jade Bartlett. Chiwetel Ejiofor and Benedict Wong will reprise their roles, with Rachel McAdams having recently confirmed that she will return as Dr Christine Palmer.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness hits theaters on March 25, 2022.
