In this universe, nobody really dies. That’s what Spider-Man: No Way Home director John Watts spoke with Alfred Molina about the return of Dr. Octopus, who died his own death in the 2004 Spider-Man 2 movie. Or so it seemed: The eight-toed mad scientist didn’t die a minute from laughing after battling his friend and protégé Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) on the East River. In a new interview with Variety, Molina reveals that No Way Home, the final chapter of the Watts-written Spider-Man 2 trilogy in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, will pick up Doc Ock’s story from this point in the stream with which Spider-Man 2, directed by Sam Raimi, ends.

When Molina pointed out to Watts that his character died by drowning in the 2004 film, Watts replied: In this universe, nobody really dies. In early discussions about Doc Ock’s return in Spider-Man 3, then called Spider-Man 3, Watts revealed that the new film will continue Molina’s story from that moment in the river where a lifeless Otto Octavius drowns alongside his plan to create a dangerous fusion energy for the city.

The No Way Home movie was supposed to be a multiverse after reports of the return of Dr. Molina Octopus and Jamie Foxx, who also died fighting the Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) of his world in 2014’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Neither Sony Pictures nor Marvel Studios have responded to rumors of the return of Green Goblin Willem Dafoe, another villain from Raimi’s universe who was killed off in the 2002 Spider-Man film.

While Peter Parker (Tom Holland) deals with the repercussions of his secret identity in the MCU, played by Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) and Jonah Jameson (J.K. Simmons, reprising his role from Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy), the friendly neighborhood avenger must somehow cross paths with the former Spider-Men, played by Maguire and Garfield.

The role of the hero’s mentor was played by Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) in the 2017 film Spider-Man: Homecoming and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) in Spider-Man 2019: Away from home, Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) reunites with Spider-Man Holland before taking on the Scarlet Witch (WandaVision’s Elizabeth Olsen) in Raimi’s Doctor Strange in Multiverse Madness.

Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige revealed the WandaVision TV series and feature Spider-Man for the first time: No Way Home and Doctor Strange in Multiverse Madness would form a separate trilogy in the current Phase 4 of the MCU.

Feige also revealed in a January interview that the concept of a multiverse will be a recurring theme before and after the Doctor Strange sequel: The title of the upcoming Doctor Strange movie is Doctor Strange in Multiverse Madness. So that’s the biggest clue that this movie will have to deal directly with the multiverse and the madness it contains. There are, as always, before and after connections to see and discover. But it seemed appropriate that Doctor Strange would take it in the most direct way possible.

Spider-Man starring Tom Holland, Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Jacob Batalon, Alfred Molina, Jamie Foxx and Benedict Cumberbatch : No Way Home was released on the 17th. December in the cinema.
