Rumors have been swirling for months that Alfred Molina would reprise his role as Doctor Octopus for Spider-Man: No Way Home, and treated as all but confirmed. Now, though, we have word straight from Doc Ock himself thanks to a new interview with Variety about his role in the recent thriller Promising Young Woman.
“When we were shooting [Spider-Man: No Way Home], we were all under orders not to talk about it, because it was supposed to be some great big secret,” Molina told Variety. “But, you know, it’s all over the internet. I actually described myself as the worst-kept secret in Hollywood!”
Going back to the role of Otto Octavius, Molina said, “was wonderful.”
