This is one of the worst kept secrets in Hollywood and so it seems Marvel Studios no longer tries to hide it – not only will Alfred Molina reprise his role as Dr. Otto Octavius ​​in “Spider-Man: No Way Home.” But the actor has now spoken about his comeback in detail.

Speaking to Variety as part of an interview about his role in “Promising Young Woman,” he said during filming that he was ordered not to talk about it because it was supposed to be a big secret. Now it’s all over the internet and so Molina is able to discuss it.

Molina starred in 2004’s “Spider-Man 2” for director Sam Raimi, that film ending with Octavius ​​drowning in the East River alongside his life’s work – a fusion reactor that threatened New York.

During their first conversations, director Jon Watts told Molina that the film would pick up directly from the latest shot of Doc Ock falling deeper and deeper into the river. Molina was concerned about a more practical aspect – he was 50 when they shot “Spider-Man 2,” he’s now 67 and has changed physically.

Molina says: “He [Watts] just looked at me and said, “Did you see what we did to Bob Downey Jr. and Sam Jackson?” “. However, Molina was also aware of the limitations of aging technology, as in Scorsese’s “The Irishman,” but said the nature of the role meant it wasn’t a problem:

“They have rejuvenated the face of Robert De Niro [in The Irishman], but when he fought he looked like an older man. He looked like an old man! That’s what worried me about starting over. I don’t have the same physicality that I had 17 years ago. It’s just a fact.

I then remembered that the tentacles do all the work !. My basic physical movement as Doc Ock, as an actor, is just this [glaring]. I just do that a lot, and the arms do all the murder and crash and bust. I’m just … with a kind of mean look on my face. It was fantastic. ”

Molina describes being back “wonderful” and “very interesting” to reprise a role seventeen years later. Molina joins other confirmed pre-MCU returnees JK Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson and Jamie Foxx as Electro in a multiverse film that will apparently bring together all three generations of Spider-Man films.

“Spider-Man: No Way Home” is scheduled to open on December 17, 2021.
