Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness brought director Sam Raimi to the MCU for his first Marvel Studios outing after his work on the 2000s Spider-Man trilogy. And more often than not, when Sam Raimi takes on a new project, his longtime friend Bruce Campbell comes along for the ride in one capacity or another.
