Bruce Campbell talks about extensive Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness reshoots

By Stephen Ippolito | April 20th, 2022

Since 2008’s Iron Man, reshoots in Marvel Studios films have been standard practice. In the past, studio president Kevin Feige has described them as “key” and “efficient” to their filming process. Well, their next movie to hit theaters, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, is no different and has gone through a couple of rounds of them as well.

Recently, one of the film’s supporting cast members Bruce Campbell, spoke with Game Informer about the reshoots. According to the Evil Dead star, it’s unclear what scenes have made the final cut.

“The Marvel guys, they make eight of these movies at the same time, so they’re always updating storylines,” the actor explained. “So, my buddy Sam [Raimi] has had to add scenes that [Marvel] told him he had to shoot, and he’s removed scenes that no longer apply. So until May rolls around I don’t think Benedict Cumberbatch even knows if he’s in this movie or not.”

Judging from his comments, it kind of sounds like he doesn’t know if his part ended up making it into the movie. The actor, who’s a long-time friend of director Sam Raimi, has a trend of having small roles in his films. But with all the extensive reshoots the sequel has undergone, including a month long outing to reportedly add more cameos, I wouldn’t be surprised if his role was cut.

One person we do know for sure that will be in the movie is Patrick Stewart’s Charles Xavier. During the film’s second trailer released in February, the actor’s voice can be heard saying “we should tell him the truth.” Stewart of course played the role for nearly 20 years in Fox’s X-Men film series.
