A new Spider-Man: No Way Home image has surfaced online via Total Film. In the new image, Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octavius is looking down at Peter Parker while Peter looks like he’s pointing back at him or something. Fans are speculating that the battle with Spider-Man against Doc Ock is all going to take place on this bridge.
In an interview with Empire Magazine earlier this month, Tom Holland spoke about Alfred Molina’s performance in Spider-Man: No Way Home and his appreciation for being able to work with Molina.
“I was obsessed with [Sam] Raimi’s movies,” Holland told Empire Magazine earlier this month. At eight years old, Holland recalls, “I remember seeing Alfred in his costume for the first time, and he had the glasses on, and he was wearing his belt, which is what the legs were attached to. And I remember, as a kid, being terrified of him.”
Marvel Studios president and chief creative officer Kevin Feige added to Holland’s raving remarks about the Spider-Man 2 actor as well. In the same interview with EW, Feige spoke about bringing back Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octavius for the upcoming Spidey film and also working with director Sam Raimi again for another Marvel film.
“It’s absolutely surreal to be working on a Doctor Strange movie with Sam Raimi in one part of the office, and then working on a Spider-Man movie with Jon Watts and Alfred Molina as Doc Ock in another room,” Feige revealed. “That has been a mind-blowing part of the last 10 years of my life.”
The new Spider-Man: No Way Home image of Molina looking down at Spider-Man just adds to that nostalgia of earlier Spider-Man films.
Feige continued to say, “‘Do we want to revisit villains we’ve seen before?’ No, let’s do Vulture, and Mysterio, and characters we haven’t brought to the screen before. But I remember thinking, ‘How would you even do Doc Ock again?,’ because Alfred Molina is perfect casting. If you ever brought him back, it would have to be him somehow.”
Marvel Studios revealed the synopsis for Spider-Man: No Way Home. Read it below:
“With Spider-Man’s identity now revealed, our friendly neighborhood web-slinger is unmasked and no longer able to separate his normal life as Peter Parker from the high stakes of being a superhero. When Peter asks for help from Doctor Strange, the stakes become even more dangerous, forcing him to discover what it truly means to be Spider-Man.”
