According to Alfred Molina, he has not ruled out playing Dr. Octavius in the MCU. The British actor admitted he couldn’t “confirm or deny” if he will play Doc Ock again during a conversation with RadioTimes.com.
What He Had to Say
That’s the official line, he added, adding that he got into problems with the previous incarnation for accidently letting the cat out of the bag. “So, you know, how’s the Spider-Man movie going?” the journalist said. I replied, “Oh, great thanks.” After that, Variety literally said the following day, “Alfred Molina announces Doc Ock returns.”
Just a Bit More
Well, it appears Molina’s media training is working well, based on his cryptic comment this time. Considering that Spider-Man: No Way Home has the sixth-highest worldwide box office total ever. We understand why the actor isn’t completely prepared to say goodbye.
The actor claimed during an appearance on the podcast Household Faces With John Ross Bowie that playing the notorious part again with Tobey Maguire was highly emotional. He stated: “In one scene, I suddenly meet Tobey. He kind of asks, “How are you, doctor?” and I respond, “Oh my god, it’s good to see you.” “I got very teary in that scene.” He went on saying: “I kinda went, ‘Oh s**t, this is a moment.'”
