For Spider-Man: No Way Home, Kevin Feige explains why he chose to bring back Alfred Molina as Doc Ock.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is finally coming to theaters in December, and Marvel fans are excited to see which of the long-running casting rumors is real. There have been numerous speculations regarding the picture since it began production, including the long-held assumption that it will star former Spider-Man stars Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. Although Tom Holland has dismissed the claims, we do know that Alfred Molina will reprise his role as Doc Ock from Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man 2. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige discussed his desire to bring in new villains for Holland’s Spider-Man films in a recent interview with Empire, and explained why they chose to bring back Molina for the first time since 2004.
“‘Do we want to watch villains we’ve already seen?’ No, let’s do Vulture and Mysterio, as well as characters we’ve never seen on television before. ‘How would you even do Doc Ock again?’ I remember thinking, since Alfred Molina is wonderful casting. It would have to be him if you ever brought him back “Feige agreed.
Before Spider-Man: No Way Home was officially confirmed, Molina spilled the beans in an interview with Variety.
“We were all told not to talk about it while we were shooting it because it was intended to be a big secret,” Molina added. “But, as you may know, it’s all over the web. I once referred to myself as Hollywood’s worst hidden secret!” He cracked a joke, “It was fantastic… It was fascinating to return to the same character after 17 years, given that I now had two chins, a wattle, crow’s feet, and a slightly bad lower back.” Holland recently spoke with EW about her desire to work with Molina.
“It was a lot of pleasure to watch him see how far technology has progressed,” Holland said. “The arms were puppets while he was filming these films, and when we did it, they were entirely fictitious and CG. It was fascinating to watch him recreate and relearn the experience.” Are you looking forward to seeing Alfred Molina reprise his role as Doc Ock? Tell us about it in the comments section!
