Tony Todd, who played Candyman in the original movie, takes up the mantle again in the 2021 reboot. Honestly, there is probably no one better suited for the role, given how iconic it is.
Can you imagine Michael Myers suddenly changing his mask and jumpsuit look? Or Ghostface from Scream in a skeleton costume?
For most longtime fans of the original film, there can be only one Candyman. There’s no official word yet on if there will be a sequel to the 2021 version of Candyman, but we live in a world of Hollywood sequels, prequels, and everything in between.
So don’t be surprised if Tony Todd is tapped to play Candyman yet again in the future.
