Bruce Campbell Can’t believe it either.
Not only did the iconic actor make another cameo in his friends Sam Raimiof Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, he was even awarded the final credits scene. Not too shabby.
this evil Dead Celebrities find themselves in crazy multiverse As the grumpy New York street vendor known as Pizza Popa. The hilarious moment even includes a tribute to another Campbell-Remy classic, Evil Dead II.
in with hollywood reporterCampbell talks about his real shock of being knocked out in the latest final Marvel Cinematic Universe movie, how proud he is of his old friend returning to the superhero scene triumphantly.He also addressed Remy’s recent comments that Campbell had been considered for the role spiderman Villain Mysterio — and those dark man Rumble of the sequel.
Just got back from post production with upcoming executive producer duties Rise of the EvilCampbell teased the HBO Max movie while discussing the new release Evil Dead: The Game, where some development delays occurred. However, he knew fans would love the ultimate, gory video game experience.
Pizza Poppa has a life of its own among fans. Did you ever think he would have such a good time?
I can’t believe I made it into a movie! I used to joke that Benedict Cumberbatch wasn’t sure if he would be in the movie because they kept revising the storyline and Sam had to shoot other things that weren’t in the original script, so it was a shell game.
How did these cameos from Sam come about? Does he only text?
Yes, it’s normal.Sam and I keep in touch because evil Dead There are many other things, but we are also friends. And I know when things start, and I can always harass my agent and say, “Hey, look what’s going on in there.” Mostly, it’s a combination of things.
this Evil Dead II The nod to fight him with Poppa’s hand isn’t lost on us diehards. Who came up with it?
I think it’s always in the base scenario. We have to figure out what to do and how Doctor Strange is going to beat him. The idea is that he’s just a nuisance and Doctor Strange has to teach him a lesson – which he certainly did. We figured it out that day, researched it, stopped it, and shot the damn thing.
Is Popa your favorite Remy cameo? Do you even rank them?
You know, the only criterion I need is that the character has to be the key.in the first spiderman, I named it Spider-Man. In the second, I’m the only character to beat Spider-Man by not letting him in theaters.while in spiderman 3, he came to the foreman for help, and proposed to Mary Jane. How many superheroes turn to mortals for help? For example, zero. So, I set a precedent. If you actually put me there, it will change the movie forever. Sam knew I made his films iconic.
(laugh.) Honestly, another criterion is the only reason to be in these movies, and that is to harass the star.if you look at all spiderman Movies, my whole purpose is to have sex with the protagonist. That’s it. I belittled him, made fun of him, confronted him, harassed him. Of course, he always wins, but you have to create obstacles for your hero to make the journey harder. That’s my job.
Here, we really can’t deny that I took up the extra 45 seconds of the Strange’s time. Maybe I saved his life because of it. In those 45 seconds, maybe I saved someone’s life, maybe I foiled a conspiracy. I don’t know if you want to dive into this conversation, but I’m ready to dive into it.
Sir, you will never be disappointed. What do you think of all the Poppa love?there’s even a Tik Tok There is an audience of over a million chefs making these pizza balls.
As long as Pizza Poppa gets paid, everything is fine. So as long as they’re not saying they should get something for free, I’m open to whatever they want. (laugh.) Yep, the memes are out. You want something to be remembered.maybe i will no longer be evil Dead Man, I’m going to be a pizza popa.
Speaking of fan reactions, when Sam revealed in a recent interview that he was considering you for Mysterio spiderman 4. Do you have an idea, or did you discover it with the rest of us?
No, because the deal fell apart before the conversation took place. I mean, the fish they’re going to fry is bigger than the stupid portion we’re going to give Campbell. Plus, Jake Gyllenhaal is a sweetheart, you know. He’s so dreamy why don’t you want him in the end?
You and Sam are lifelong friends, and their famous careers are intertwined. Does it still blow your mind when you collaborate?
Well, as Sam said recently, “I can’t believe they still let us do this.” It’s been a while now. you know, evil dead It came out in 1981, but we made the movie in 1979. So technically it’s 43 years old. And the fans keep showing up. We’re just putting the finishing touches on the new version of Lee Cronin, Rise of the Evil. I am amused by pink. I often go into post-production just to see what’s going on. It’s interesting to see what other people do with this horror concept. This would be a very solid, respected entry into the franchise.
In another interview, Sam mentioned a proper dark man The sequel is getting kicked out.Any decent Remy Campbell fan knows you’re a finalist dark man camouflage. So, can you share any insights?
My interest depends on whether Sam is involved. However, he can’t direct. Look, Sam, he’s back. Older birds still get it, good to see. Mostly, it’s going to be fun because now he has more wiggle room. Look, they had Sam Raimi make a Sam Raimi movie. Marvel will always put the Marvel stamp on it, but Sam is good at fooling himself there. You could say there are some definite Sam moments. People were outraged that it was PG-13 – the violence was very cartoonish.
Finally, the long-awaited Evil Dead: The Game Sabre Interactive just released.As if, from reaction In the world of esports, the wait is worth it.
Honestly, I’m glad they waited.There were three before evil Dead Games are made, you know, they get better. But they are all cheese balls. They’ve been delaying the game due to platform changes, technology changes, and style changes. So we kind of took it and we’re glad they waited. I’m very happy with it, and the game seems to be popular.
in numerous evil Dead Franchise characters are available, do you have any recommendations for players?
Wicked Ashes are fun – but so is Old Ash [from Ash vs Evil Dead]. Don’t leave the weirdos out: experience, they know when not to panic, they have great life-saving skills, they know how these demons work. Little Ashe is good because he can keep recovering — but also plays the old guy at times.
