Doc Ock Actor Alfred Molina Was Worried About Returning to the Character After 17 Years

Before its trailer came out, Spider-Man: No Way Home had long been rumored to bring back characters from the past Spider-Man movies. As you may expect, fans were desperate to see their favorite actors, including Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire, joining Tom Holland, and have their ‘spidey senses’ tingle altogether in this one epic film.

However, the leaked teaser trailer only confirmed the return of one character — Doc Ock, played by Spider-Man 2 original actor Alfred Molina. At about 2:38 minutes in, we see the Doc popping up dramatically (as expected) with all his four tentacles. After the usual dramatic pause, he utters a single line, “Hello Peter.”
