Octopus was portrayed by British actor Alfred Molina in the second film of the original trilogy of Spider-Man, 2004, and more than 15 years later, returns as part of Peter Parker’s adventures in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU, for its acronym in English).

Also called ‘Doc Ock’, the scientist appeared for a few seconds in the August trailer before stealing much of the attention from the latest trailer, where a big change in his role is even suggested. Will he leave the villain team? After all, in the more intense sequences of the advance he is not on the side of the rest of the antagonists.


In principle, the new trailer delves into the unexpected reappearance of the villains of the previous films of Spider-Man, because of Peter Parker himself and Doctor Strange after his attempt to return anonymity to ‘Spider-Man’ failed.

When it comes his turn to go into battle, Octopus reduces Spider-Man, but he can do no more when he discovers that it is not the Peter Parker he remembers. Later, locked in a kind of cell, he introduces himself properly to Peter, Ned and MJ and from his tone of voice, it seems that he wants to reach an agreement with the team. Why?

As well defined in the trailer, Strange has every intention of returning Octopus, Electro, Sandman, and the Green Goblin to their worlds to fulfill their destinies., die in combat with their respective Peter Parker. However, Peter is against it.

In this context, the best way out for Octavius ​​is to ally with Spider-Man if he wants to stay alive. Will the rest of the villains follow in his footsteps? If so, the performance of the Sinister Six, if the team is completed in the film, would be radically different from what could be expected.

As more than one will remember, Otto Octavius ​​became a villain when the neurological link that he maintains with the artificial intelligence of his robotic tentacles was corrupted. Before you could say that he was reckless and ambitious but he had the best intentions in the world. Could it go back to normal?

The new trailer for “Spider-Man: No Way Home“Shows that in the battle against Peter, the nanotechnology developed by Iron Man covers the tentacles of Octopus and as in the past this technology has allowed the healing of wounds, it could mend the neural problem of the scientist.
