Bruce Campbell Shares an Army of Darkness-Inspired Infinity Gauntlet

To celebrate the release of Marvel Studios' Avengers: Endgame, actor Bruce Campbell shared a photoshopped image of himself on Twitter sporting his very own version of Thanos' Infinity Gauntlet.

Campbell is best known for his role as Ash Williams in the Evil Dead film series. However, the image in question originates from Army of Darkness, the final film in director Sam Raimi's original trilogy. During the film, Ash constructs a mechanical gauntlet to replace his hand, which he lost during the events in Evil Dead 2 before declaring his creation to be "groovy."

The edited image posted by Campbell shows Ash peering towards the camera while wearing the gauntlet, which has been adorned with the six Infinity Stones. Fittingly, Campbell has dubbed this new Marvel/Evil Dead hybrid weapon the "Groovy Gauntlet."

In addition to starring as Ash in Raimi's first three Evil Dead films, Campbell also reprised his role for the 2013 reboot, as well as the 2015 television series Ash vs Evil Dead.

Of course, thanks to Raimi, Campbell is certainly no stranger to the world of superheroes either. The actor had a cameo in all three entries of Raimi's Spider-Man film series, directly interacting with Peter Parker each time.

Rumors have also circulated a fourth film would have revealed Campbell to be the villain Mysterio, but even if that was the plan, the project was ultimately axed. Mysterio is finally set to make his big screen debut this summer in Spider-Man: Far From Home, in which he will be played by Jake Gyllenhaal.

Meanwhile, we can only wonder how differently Army of Darkness would have played out had Ash wielded the power of the universe itself in his hand, though the Time Stone would have solved his predicament just fine on its own. But if there's one thing we know about Ash, it's that he loves to go the extra mile.
