A new deleted scene from Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness teases the return of Bruce Campbell’s hilarious Pizza Poppa character.
The sequel has just arrived on Vudu and Disney Plus, with the former including several extras including deleted scenes and audio commentary from director Sam Raimi. One of the deleted scenes features Pizza Poppa, played by Bruce Campbell, in a scene that closely resembles the one played after the credits.
In the second post-credits scene, which may well have been done to fool Marvel fans waiting in the theater after each movie, we see Bruce Campbell’s Pizza Poppa finally breaking free of Doctor Strange’s spell. He looks straight into the camera and yells, “It’s over!” However, in the deleted scene, when the spell wears off, Campbell yells, “Doctor Strange hasn’t seen the last of Pizza Poppa!”

Campbell’s cameo comes as no surprise to fans of Raimi’s work, as the actor has starred in several Raimi-directed movies, including Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2, Army of Darkness and Crimewave. Campbell even made a cameo appearance in Campbell’s Spider-Man trilogy, playing the ring announcer who changes Peter’s wrestling name to Spider-Man in the first installment and the usher who won’t let him in to see Spider-Man’s play. Mary Jane in the sequel.
The deleted scene implies that Campbell’s Pizza Poppa could make another appearance in a future Doctor Strange movie, continuing the Raimi-Campbell legacy.
