Peter Parker is getting into some multiverse hijinks in the upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home, and fans collectively lost their shit when Alfred Molina appeared as Doctor Otto Octavius. While we only got a short look at him in the trailer, Empire has dropped some new images of the classic iteration of the villain facing off against the MCU Spider-Man.
Check these out:

Besides that photo, we also have a Spider-Man-less photo of Ock with his CG tentacles:

While at first glance they look like the same ones we see in Spider-Man 2, some fans have pointed out that there is now a red color scheme to them—very similar to the color scheme of Iron Man. It’s possible that this is just a detail we missed from Ock’s original appearance, but that turtle neck could be a hint that this isn’t the Octavius we met in Spidey 2, but a different version. What if it’s the Octavius that actually succeeded in his experiment? What if the same could go for this film’s version of the Green Goblin and Electro?
A lot of fans were hoping for a big No Way Home trailer drop this week, but it looks like Sony won’t be giving us any goods. With December almost here, I think that we could have a preview drop sometime in the middle of November. Hopefully we don’t have to wait too long, and hopefully we get to see some more villains this time around.
