Bruce Campbell Says Spider-Man 4 Shooting in January?
Bruce Campbell is certainly a novelty in the Spider-Man franchise. In each film he's played a character who has somehow defeated the unbeatable Spider-Man (something which no other villain can seem to do). The actor's charisma and close relationship with director Sam Raimi pretty much guarantees his involvement in the upcoming sequels, so when Campbell dishes out some info, we should probably be listening. This time Access Hollywood caught up with Campbell and found out from him that not only is his role in Spider-Man 4 considered to be a "major one," but apparently the sequel will begin shooting in January of 2010.
Of course there's plenty of speculation about Campbell potentially taking on the role of a villain (Mysterio seems to be the most popular), but with all the craziness that's been going on hiring writer after writer for the forthcoming sequel, who really knows what's going on with the script. There's a chance they could even have a bigger role for Campbell set up in the fourth sequel to become a villain in either the fifth or sixth installments. Or maybe Campbell himself could simply be hyping it up (afterall he is out promoting his role in Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs) so for now I think we'll just have to take this with a grain of salt and wait for some official word from Raimi or Sony (hopefully). Are you excited for Campbell's return?
