‘Spider-Man’ Fans Are Trying To Figure Out How To Conjure Bruce Campbell Into ‘No Way Home’

Now that the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer has been released into the wild and officially confirmed the long-gestating rumors that the movie will feature elements from the Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield movies (although perhaps not the actors themselves), Spidey fans caused Bruce Campbell to trend on social media thanks to an onslaught of tweets that hope the actor will make one of his trademark cameos in the new film.

As fans of the original Tobey Maguire films know, Campbell appears in all three installments as a wrestling announcer, usher, and a French maître d.’ The actor has been a close personal friend of Sam Raimi after making the Evil Dead movies togethers, and the director has made it a point to include Campbell in each of his films. In fact, Campbell was originally cast as Mysterio in Spider-Man 4 until Raimi walked away from the project, which prompted the way for The Amazing Spider-Man reboot starring Andrew Garfield.

But now that Way From Home is pulling aggressively from the previous Spider-Man films, fans are hoping that Campbell at the very least will have a cameo if not get a chance to finally play Mysterio. While that may seem like a long shot, Marvel is very much in the Sam Raimi business again. The director is currently filming Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and Campbell has already slyly hinted that he may show up in the sequel. Considering Way From Home has a very strong Doctor Strange presence, Campbell’s chances of being in the film aren’t looking too shabby.

Here are just some of the fan reactions below:
