Fan-favorite Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey character Death will return for Face the Music, with William Sadler reprising the role.
The official Bill & Ted 3 Twitter account announced Sadler's return as the popular character with a GIF of Death losing a game of Battleship to the eponymous duo. The sequence took place during Bogus Journey's homage to The Seventh Seal, where Bill and Ted beat Death in a series of board games.
Debuting in Bogus Journey, the unlucky Death challenged Bill and Ted to a game for their souls after the two were killed by their evil robot duplicates from the future. Their initial response was to give him a wedgie, only to change their minds after being sent to Hell. After they beat him in a round of board games, he became their reluctant servant and helped them stop the machinations of the film's main villain, Chuck De Nomolos. Hopefully, Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves' characters will go easy on Sadler this time around.
Bill & Ted Face the Music is directed by Dean Parisot, written by Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon and stars Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter. The film is slated for a summer 2020 release.
