A Major Spider-Man Villain Nearly Featured in “Iron Man”
In an early version of Iron Man, Dr. Otto Octavius was seen in the film as the recipient of robotic tentacles. These transformed him into Doc Ock in the Spider-Man series.
Doc Ock, the trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home nearly set off an explosion when he emerged from the flames. The tragic scientist, the Green Goblin and Lizard, as well as Sandman, are all confirmed to be in the film. However, rumors that Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire remain unconfirmed.
In an interview with Esquire, Tom Holland stated that “No, no, they won’t be appearing in this movie.” “Unless they have kept the most important piece of information from you, which I believe is too big of a secret for them to keep away from me,” Holland said. Would you want to be in their shoes?
It’s been a while since we last saw Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock on the silver screen. So it’s interesting to imagine that he could have played the role again in Iron Man. Moviefone claims that one draft of the script would have stated that Dr. Octavius gets a set of robotic tentacles made by Tony Stark.
We know that the connection was eventually removed. This must have had to do with the fact Sony owned the screen rights to the character. The third film can draw from the cast of characters that Sony already has since Marvel and Sony are once again collaborators.
It’s true, Doc Ock is the part of No Way Home I am most excited about. Holland said that it was great to see him experience the advances in technology. Holland spoke to Entertainment Weekly. The arms of his films were made with puppets. Now, they are all CG and imaginary. It was very cool to watch him not only relive the experience but also learn it again.
