Tom Holland who plays Spider-Man in Marvel’s ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ movie talks about how he has always been scared of Doctor Octopus played by Alfred Molina. In a recent interview, Holland notes his fears. The 25-year-old actor confesses that he was “terrified” of Molina’s Dr. Octopus in the 2004 Spider-Man movie.
Tom Holland says: “I was obsessed with [Sam] Raimi’s movies.” 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 I kid, being terrified of him.”
The interview which was for the No Way Home-centric print issue of Empire Magazine is an occurrence that is taking place 17 years since and now we have Peter Parker played by Tom Holland fight the mad scientist who was vanquished years ago by Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man in a different Universe, giving rise to Multiverse in this upcoming film. Along with him, we also have the villain Green Goblin played by Willen Dafoe.
This iconic crossover is noted by Marvel Studios President and producer Kevin Feige who says, “‘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.”
The trailer gives us an answer to that “somehow” being the spell cast by Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange in ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home.’
The upcoming film is going to star Tom Holland, Zendaya, Alfred Molina, Marisa Tomei, Jamie Foxx, and Benedict Cumberbatch. Sony and Marvel‘s ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ swings into theatres on December 17, 2021.Instagram & Facebook to keep yourself updated with the latest news and reviews.
