After a long delay Spider-Man: No Way Home is just less than two months away from its official release date and the fans have been continuously speculating about actor Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and Alfred Molina’s inclusion in the cast of the film, although Molina’s appearance once again in the role of iconic supervillain Otto Octavius also known as Doctor Octopus in the much-awaited film has been confirmed, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige while recently speaking with Empire shared his thoughts on Molina’s returning back in the franchise after almost two decades. Feige also touched upon the fact that how the studio wanted to bring new villains in the third installment of Tom Holland’s Spiderman film series.

While the actor is returning in the role of the fan-favorite supervillain, it looks like he isn’t enjoying it less than what he used to when he was first featured in the Sony Pictures Spider-Man franchise, as he previously while taking with Variety shared his experience.

"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," said Molina. "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 a slightly dodgy lower back."
