Bruce Campbell vows revenge in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness deleted scene

Pizza Poppa wants to return to the MCU, and who are we to say no?

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness ended with a tease for the return of the titular sorcerer and a new ally named Clea (Charlize Theron) in a future MCU film, but a just-revealed deleted scene courtesy of Vudu from the recent film teases another return - for vengeance.

Bruce Campbell's Pizza Poppa, a pizza street vendor from an alternate Marvel U seen in the Doctor Strange 2, apparently wants revenge - and like any good pizza, it could be even better when you re-heat it for the next day.

Check out this Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness deleted scene, just released by Vudu to coincide with the home video release of the film:

"Doctor Strange has not seen the last of the Pizza Poppa!" exclaims Campbell's character.

Who's up for a Pizza Poppa + Pizza Dog team-up?

Campbell returned in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and firmly re-established himself as Marvel's other cameo person after the late, great Stan Lee. With the recent Spider-Man and Doctor Strange movies firmly enveloping the Sam Raimi Spider-Man films into the larger MCU, Bruce Campbell has now made four MCU cameos: there's Pizza Poppa, but also a ring announcer (2002's Spider-Man), the Snooty Usher (2004's Spider-Man 2), and the Maitre d' (2007's Spider-Man 3). And that's before counting him narrating the early '00s Spider-Man game trilogy, and being the'Extreme Reporter' in 2012's Amazing Spider-Man game.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is available now on Disney+, Vudu, and other home video platforms. The home video version includes this and other deleted scenes, as well as audio commentary from director Sam Raimi, writer Michael Waldron, and producer Richie Palmer.

Oh yeah, there's also a bloopers and gag reel, which for Raimi films is an especially fun treat.
