Vudu has released an exclusive deleted scene from Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which features Bruce Campbell’s Pizza Poppa after the events of the film.
In the deleted scene, Pizza Poppa can be seen still punching himself after his run-in with Doctor Strange. Like in the full film’s post-credit scene, Pizza Poppa is finally able to stop hitting himself. In this scene, however, he angrily declares that Doctor Strange has not seen the last of Pizza Poppa. While it’s likely a joke scene, the idea of more Bruce Campbell in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is certainly appealing.
You can check out the full deleted scene below:
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which is now streaming on Disney+ and available for purchase from Vudu, sees the return of Benedict Cumberbatch as he reprises his role as Dr. Stephen Strange. This time the Sorcerer Supreme will be joined by Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff, who has finally transformed into the Scarlet Witch during the WandaVision finale.
“In the film, the MCU unlocks the Multiverse and pushes its boundaries further than ever before,” reads the synopsis. “Journey into the unknown with Doctor Strange, who, with the help of mystical allies both old and new, traverses the mind-bending and dangerous alternate realities of the Multiverse to confront a mysterious new adversary.”
Joining Cumberbatch are returning MCU alums Chiwetel Ejiofor, Benedict Wong, and Rachel McAdams, who are reprising their roles as Karl Mordo, Wong, and Dr. Christine Palmer, respectively. It features the live-action debut of Marvel hero America Chavez, who is portrayed by newcomer Xochitl Gomez (The Baby-Sitters Club).
The film is directed by Sam Raimi (Spider-Man trilogy) from a script written by Emmy-winning scribe Michael Waldron (Loki). It is executive produced by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige.
