Bruce Campbell Might Have A Bigger Role In Spider-Man 4
Most of us love Bruce Campbell. With Sam Raimi directing the Spider-Man movies, Bruce has put in cameos in all the films. His cameos are almost becoming as important as Stan Lee's, at least in the Spider-Man movies. Part of the fun (at least for me) in watching the movies is waiting to see where Bruce will pop up next. Will he appear in the next Spider-Man movie?
It turns out the chances are pretty good. In fact, he may have a bigger role than he's had before. Campbell recently told Access Hollywood that he's been told he has a "major part" except he just doesn't know what the part is yet.
We still haven't heard details about the plot. For now, we can only speculate as to what part Campbell will have. Will it be just another cameo or could he possibly getting a bigger role (like Mysterio). Filming for Spider-Man 4 begins in January 2010. Perhaps we'll get some information before then. The movie is set to be released in May 2011.
Do you want Bruce Campbell to have a bigger role? Do you think he could add to the overall movie or do you think it should just be another cameo?
If hes in it id buy it .i still say hed done tony stark justice.hes done some serious roles .an has bit more depth as a actor than people give him credit for.roles tho he does seem to enjoy makeing fun of his "star" persona or the industry in genral.
I'd love to see Bruce in the movie more. More than one scene anyway. I dunno if they'd make him a villain though, I'm sure he could do it but if they make him a villain we won't keep getting cameos in future Spider-Man movies....if there are going to be any more anyway.
There was a rumor a long time ago that one of the endings that had been filmed for an "after the credits" piece in Spider-Man 3 would have Bruce Campbell tinkering away at a table in a not-so-well-lit room, and then seeing a nametag or something to that effect that read "Quentin Beck". Then again, said footage has never surfaced.
o ok i like spidey but i'm not a fan or nething lol hopefully if they do make another it's better than the third one which waas crammed and didn't know the symbiote didi not only make you evil but emo lol
i almost died when he did the hair scene
"ok with him being everywere and all i say hes going to be Chameleon and it would explain the cameos "
I like your line of thinking. It IS possible, isn't it? I keep reading over and over though that Campbell may be Mysterio.
However if he does show up as Mysterio I have a feeling they'd purposely have him as a 2-bit loser villain, not unlike the Mysterio from the comics. Mysterio has caused probs for Spidey despite his fish bowl. I think he will show up as a thorn in Spidey's side and be comedic relief.
Not that I'd complain, because that's been Campbell's schtick for some time.
well, he is kind of plugging his friend, but the results of plugging his friend have been amazing. His roles are funny, and about creating a movie that isn't the same as the one before it, I think he learned his lesson. (or at least we hope he did)

" @NagolNuff said:I don't know. How do you figure he could of known who Quentin Beck is? You would need some kind of site that could show you that kind of information.................... Wait a minute!! There is one! lol" @jakob187: Quentin Beck? "Mysterio. "
If Mysterio is the main villain (regardless of who's playing him), they should stay away from a sympathetic origin story, making him evil for evil's sake:
The Goblins and Dr. Octopus were nuts, and Sandman was trying to pay for his daughter's medicine, so 4 baddies you eventually feel sorry for is too much. Venom, who was praying to God to kill Spider-Man for ruining his photojournalism career, was a good start.
If they do use Campbell for Mysterio, they could explain that Mysterio disguised himself as the ring announcer, theater bouncer, and French maitre'd, to commit crimes or elude the police and Spider-Man.

I love Bruce Campbell. He was awesome in the Evil Deads. And now he's in Burn Notice... kind of let himself go though lol.
I think he deserves a bigger role. The two have worked together before, and looked how well that turned out. Hell, he might even make the Spider-Man movies good if he had a bigger role. I think the only good parts of 2 of the Spider-Man movies was in the 2nd one, when he stopped Peter going into the theatre. Then the as the french receptionist guy. That was pretty funny.
