Bruce Campbell Isn’t Buying What They’re Selling With Batman v Superman


Bruce Campbell during an interview with The LA Times, while promoting his latest project Ash Vs. Evil Dead with his co-star Lucy Lawless, when answering a question regarding his character of Ash, Campbell went on to comment on Batman fighting Superman is a mistake and he’s not buying what Warner Bros. is selling.

Let’s be real: your character in the “Evil Dead” franchise dealt with some truly horrific things — blood, guts, possession, demons, doppelgänger. How is Ash remotely sane when we pick up now?

Campbell: Well, he’s not! He’s like a veteran. Who’s been though a couple of battles, a couple of skirmishes. So he’s definitely damaged goods, and that’s what attracts me to it. I don’t like characters that are too perfect. What are you going to do with them? That’s my only problem with some superheroes is that they’re too perfect. Batman fighting Superman? To me that’s, sorry Warner Bros., it’s just a mistake. Because most fans are going to go, “Baloney, Superman, in his sleep.”

But now he has special armor.

Campbell: Batman does? Well he’s gonna need it — he’s fighting Superman! His face is exposed. Punch Ben Affleck in the face, you’re done. Walk away. What’s for lunch?

Lawless: He’s like, “No no not the face, not the face!”

Campbell: Hey, nice try. I’m not buying what they’re selling. Because OK, Kryptonite, well, who’s carrying around Kryptonite? Only Lex Luthor.

Lawless: Ah, Batman’s suit, hello.

Campbell: Batman’s suit is made out of Kryptonite?

Lawless: Probably.

Campbell: What a crock. Where’s he gonna get it, on the Internet?

Lawless: You can get anything on the Internet. Kryptonite underpants.
