It was back in 2004 when Afred Molina brought Doctor Octopus to life in Sam Raimi’s ‘Spiderman 2’, one of which is still considered one of the best superhero movies. Along with Tobey Maguire, his return occurred in ‘No Way Home’, and now the actor answers if he has a space in the future of the UCM.
Doctor Octopus was one of the best villains in Sam Raimi’s original ‘Spider-Man’ trilogy, and the first character to confirm that ‘No Way Home’ would be about exploring the possibilities of the Multiverse that Disney and Sony had planned for many years. . Marvel’s future will continue to expand its knowledge of these timelines, so we could see more of these villains.

Finally, Molina appreciates all the work of the director and Marvel Studios to achieve something like ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’: “What made the Jon Watts Spider-Man movies and the Sam Raimi movies so wonderful is that they both They were directed by people who, and they had creative teams of people, who absolutely love the genre.”
Bringing Doctor Octopus in as a villain in Marvel’s future wouldn’t make sense, given that his evil side was cured, and he was never really an enemy. So we could see it in his facet as Otto Octavius, although we doubt that he will pass. However, we will stay with the closure that he had in ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’.
