Actor Alfred Molina might be returning as Doc Ock in Spider-Man 3! Yes, the early reveal suggests his comeback in the MCU movie.
According to Murphy’s Multiverse, 2004’s Spider-Man 2 supervillain Doc Ock aka Doctor Otto Octavius, may reprise his role. And it’s believed that actor Alfred Molina has already joined the shoot of Spider-Man 3.
So it seems very likely that the concept of the multiverse in Marvel will play a bigger role in the future. Because now it’s been confirmed that many older Spider-Man characters will return in the next MCU flick.
Spider-Man 3 movie early details
The latest rumors and reveals are hinting towards a classic return of Doc Ock. And he will sport his full costume from the 2004 blockbuster. That’s another great news for the die-hard fans of Sam Raimi‘s masterpiece. Alfred Molina was highly praised as the supervillain 16 years ago in his role of Doctor Otto Octavius.
And now that every other related character is coming back, it was obvious to think of Doc Ock. His portrayal also inspired iterations of the character in 2018’s Marvel’s Spider-Man video game.
So far, Jamie Foxx’s Electro, Andrew Garfield’s and Tobey Maguire’s versions of Peter Parker are confirmed to return. They all will reprise their respective roles from the past movies.
Speaking of Spider-Man 3, then the early plot leaks suggest a storyline involving Kraven the Hunter. However, no official word has been out from Marvel Studios yet. But it seems like there will be some relation to the character. Because everyone knows that Sony is planning to create its own Sinister Six line-up of a supervillain in its films, the next installment starring Tom Holland will surely carry forward this plan.
MCU films in phase four and beyond
Meanwhile, Disney’s new Marvel slate updated a few days ago clearly tells that there will be a delay in the releases. Due to COVID-19, the initially scheduled films will arrive late.
Other projects that are about to enter the next phase include many anticipated titles. Black Widow, Eternals, and Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings will be released next year. After that, fans will have to wait longer for Captain Marvel 2, Blade, Black Panther 2.
Additionally, shows like Ms. Marvel, Nick Fury series, Moon Knight, and Hawkeye are also on the list. They will come on the Disney Plus streaming platform. WandaVision and Falcon and the Winter Soldier are about to arrive early next year.
