It was last month that the worst kept secret in Marvel’s history finally became a reality on screen, as the Spider-Man: No Way Home Trailer brought a number of surprises and the very expected arrival of Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock. The record-breaking trailer has a first look at the return of Tom Holland’s Peter Parker and his web-slinging alter-ego in the wake of Spider-Man: Far From Home, as his identity revealed the world of mystery. Together with Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange, he does his first MCU Appearance since Final game, the footage pointed to a number of former villains from the Spidey story who appear in the film, many of them from Sam Raimi Spider-Man Trilogy.
As we all know Sam Raimi comes back to Marvel as director of Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness. While I was talking to Syfy Wire about the Netflix movie Night books, which he produced, he was asked what it would be like to see his Alfred Molina return to the role he played in Raimi Spiderman 2.
“That was beautiful,” Raimi said of Molina’s return. “He looks great, the animation is great. I’m assuming it’s not puppetry, because when we did Doc Ock, we had puppets and animation for his octopus tentacles. But it was smooth and powerful and I love his costume [from the original]. I think it’s a great movie. “
While Marvel has a strict lock and key approach to what their stars can and cannot reveal about upcoming movies, Alfred Molina does not seem to get the memo if he had no problem playing the beans over his return to the Marvel universe after 17 years. “It was very interesting to come back after 17 years to play the same role, because in the intervening years I now have two chins, a waddle, cruciate ligament and … a slightly dodgy lower back,” he told Variety.
In a complete rehearsal, a well-trained Sam Raimi was not about to show anything about his Doctor Strange Continuation that is worthwhile takes the MCU even deeper into the multiverse when it hits theaters next year. “They won’t let me say anything,” he apologized. “I do not think … I’m sorry.” Even though Raimi was a little late to the party after joining the project after original director Scott Derrickson left the film due to “creative differences”, he made it clear to Kevin Feige Vow of Silence.
We still have Eternal to come in November before we even arrive Spider-Man: No Way Home at the end of the year, but that did not stop the film from getting a lot of attention, thanks in part to the recent performances of Venom: Let There Be Carnage. With Sony hinting that her Spider-Man Universe and MCU will be connected, says director Andy Serkis that there is every probability Spider-Man and Venom are facing each other sometime in the future, and more than a subtle sign that the world of Marvel will change forever, it’s no wonder fans will be a little shocked to see how it all comes together. This news comes from us Syfy Drot.
