New Trailer Hints That Doc Ock Might Turn Good From Evil In Spider-Man: No Way Home

Otto Octavius is one of the many confirmed villains in the upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home and the latest trailer was released recently showed a little more of what fans can expect from Alfred Molina’s second appearance as the infamous Spider-Man villain. Since the first trailer, it has been constantly teased that Octavius’ tentacles have a somewhat scarlet tone to it, and the trailer reveals how that takes place.

Is Doc Ock Using Stark’s Nano-tech?

As Molina’s Otto Octavius and Holland’s Peter Parker take on each other on the bridge, we can see Iron Man’s nano-tech taking over his tentacles. This is supposedly coming from the Iron Spider suit, however, this has gotten some die-hard fans wondering if these particles will turn the iconic Spider-Man villain good again. Let’s not forget that there is another scene in the almost three-minute trailer where Octavius looks like he’s helping Peter Parker, MJ, and Ned with their search. After this, he seems to be missing from the rest of the footage which has fight sequences from other Spidey villains.


Here’s the new trailer:

Infinity War proved that nanotech can heal people after Stark used it to heal the wound conflicted on him by The Mad Titan, Thanos. In case, Otto manages to use the nanotech in the form of an upgrade, it’s possible it ends up curing the neuro link that saw Doctor turning corrupt in 2002’s Spider-Man 2 by Sam Raimi.

Can Doc Ock Have A Change Of Heart?

If we think more, it would make some sense for Doctor Octavius to leave evil behind and turn good, getting out of the film quite early because well, until now he’s the most marketed villain in the marketing done by Marvel Studios until now. If Marvel and Sony put the focus on Doc from now and the release date, ie. December 17, it will directly mean that the studios can have some surprises under their sleeves for the movie’s eventual release.

“When we were shooting it, we were all under orders not to talk about it, because it was supposed to be some great big secret,” Molina previously told Variety of his return. “But, you know, it’s all over the internet. I actually described myself as the worst kept secret in Hollywood!” He joked, “It was wonderful … It was very interesting going back after 17 years to play the same role, given that in the intervening years, I now have two chins, a wattle, crow’s feet, and a slightly dodgy lower back.”

Spider-Man: No Way Home is set to hit the theaters on 17th December.
