Bruce Campbell To Have A 'Major Part' In 'Spider-Man 4,' Filming To Begin January 2010?

Bruce CampbellLast we heard regarding Bruce Campbell and "Spider-Man 4," director Sam Raimi was not only hoping the "Evil Dead" actor would return for yet another cameo, but was also trying to figure out where to fit the fan-favorite actor in the next film.

According to a report on Access Hollywood, it sounds like Campbell is not only returning for the next "Spider-Man" movie, but Raimi has found him a big role in the much-anticipated sequel.

"In the next installment in the superhero franchise, [Campbell] has been told he has a major part – but didn’t yet know anything about his character," reported the site.

While the site speculates that Campbell could be playing Mysterio, the villainous master of illusion, there's still no official word yet on which bad guys Peter Parker will be squaring off against in his next big-screen adventure. However, the report also states that filming for "Spider-Man 4" will begin in January 2010—a far more believable rumor.

In the first three films, Campbell made cameos as a ring announcer, a theater usher and finally, in "Spider-Man 3," as the host at a high-end restaurant Parker visited.

So, with "Spider-Man 4" set to hit theaters in May 2011, let the speculation begin. Who will Bruce Campbell play?
