Alfred Molina Talks About Playing Doc Ock In ‘‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’!

In a recent interview, Alfred Molina goes into spoiler territory talking about Doc Ock’s return in Spider-Man: No Way Home!

Here’s what Variety‘s article said when interviewing Molina:

Instead, not only did Molina confirm his involvement in “No Way Home,” he happily detailed his experience making the movie, and returning to a part he first played in Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man 2” in 2004.

“It was wonderful,” he said. “It was very interesting going back after 17 years to play the same role, given that in the intervening years, I now have two chins, a wattle, crow’s feet and a slightly a slightly dodgy lower back.”

When the actor asked Jon Watts, the director of “No Way Home,” how the movie would bring Doc Ock back — since, as he pointed out, “I died” — Molina said the director told him, “In this universe, no one really dies.”

In their early conversations, Molina said, Watts told him that the movie will pick up Doc Ock’s story from “that moment” in the river, which in a franchise that include multiverses, time-travel and diverging timelines seems…plausible enough.

Molina’s concerns were more practical. He said that he asked Watts how they were going to deal with the fact that at 67, he’s aged since the 2004 film.

Molina realized, though, that the nature of the role would save him. “I then remembered that it’s the tentacles that do all the work!”

He sat up straight in his seat. “My basic physical move as Doc Ock, as the actor, is just this,” he said as he glared intensely at the Zoom camera and made a menacing noise. “I just do that a lot, and the arms are doing all the killing and smashing and breaking. I’m just going —” he glared again — “with a kind of mean look on my face.”

The interview is long, but it’s great, so I highly recommend reading Variety’s article. Molina just straight up confirms that No Way Home will be a multiverse film, and this means the possible returns of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. Since he didn’t go out as a bad guy, and picking up where his story left off in Spider-Man 2, it could be possible that the tentacles has completely took over Otto Octavius. Overall, this is exciting.

We know No Way Home will release this year, so as we get closer to the release date, we’ll get even more confirmations on story plots we already know. As long as the story is good and doesn’t feel like too much, then this could be one of the most coolest Spider-Man films of all time, hell maybe one of the best comic book films of all time!

Spider-Man: No Way Home will release in theaters on December 17th!
