But if they were to make a sequel to Army of Darkness, one problem would be choosing which ending to treat as canon. The future ending makes most sense within the context of the movie, but it was only used in Europe so nobody saw it. The S Mart ending is the one everyone in the US knows, but its terrible, completely incoherent and makes no sense Did Ash just "get away" with dismembering all his friends at the cabin? Why isnt he in an asylum? Why does he still have a job? Where did the witch come from if she didnt know who Ash was?. Not a good springboard for a movie.

I guess Sam Raimi has never been particularly beholden to endings; if you watch the start of Evil Dead 2 and AoD. The first twenty minutes of Evil Dead 2 are pretty much a remake of the first film anyway, which is why Im not totally against this one. However, I would rather see Bruce Campbell in a starring role in a theatrical released picture. If they must have a youngster, I hope they pick a nobody. Start putting "stars" in these movies and youll kill the magic.

He's back in normal times if you consider the TV Series canon.

Except for the end of the last episode. That was sad, and totally out of character.
