Alfred Molina isn’t ruling out playing Doctor Octavius again in future Marvel films
| Last updated
To all you Spider-Man fans, brace yourself because Alfred Molina has said he isn’t ruling out playing Dr Octavius in the MCU.
While sitting down with RadioTimes.com, the British actor revealed he could neither ‘confirm or deny’ if he would reprise his role as Doc Ock.
Ok, that’s not a concrete ‘yes’, but my Spidey senses are tingling.
I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw the superhero’s four-legged arch-nemesis grace the big screen once again.
Something tells me Molina isn't ready to hang out the gloves - or tentacles - just yet.
He said: "That's the official line. I got into a bit of trouble over the last iteration because I happened to let the cat out of the bag quite innocently.
"Just accidentally, I was talking to a journalist who said, 'So, you know, how's the Spider-Man movie going?' And I went, 'Oh, great thanks'. Then literally the next day, Variety was like, 'Alfred Molina reveals Doc Ock returns'."
My god, Molina is almost as bad at keeping secrets as his co-star Tom Holland.
The Raiders of the Lost Ark actor said that following his slip-up, he momentarily wasn’t in Marvel’s good books.
He shared: "I got into such trouble.
"I was getting phone calls from Amy Pascal, Kevin Feige was on the red carpet somewhere and somebody asked him about some Marvel movie and apparently he got a bit snippy and turned around and said, 'Ask Alfred Molina'.
"So I got into a little bit of hot water.
"So that's the official line - I can neither confirm nor deny."
Well, given Molina’s cryptic message this time around, it seems his media training is doing wonders.
Given that Spider-Man: No Way Home is the sixth highest grossing film of all time (generating a whopping USD $1.97 billion [AUD $2.89b or £1.61b] at the box office), we can see why the actor isn’t ready to say goodbye entirely.
While appearing on the podcast, Household Faces With John Ross Bowie, the actor said reprising his infamous role alongside his co-star Tobey Maguire proved extremely emotional.
He said: "There was one scene where I suddenly meet Tobey, and he kinda goes 'How are you, doctor?' And I go, 'Oh my god, it's good to see you.'
"I got very teary in that scene.”
He continued. "I kinda went, 'Oh s**t, this is a moment.'"
