Alfred Molina (Raiders of the Lost Ark, Boogie Nights) has been cast as Doctor Octopus in the next Spider-Man movie.

Nice bit of casting. He looks the part, and he's got some acting chops. Here's hoping they give him Ock's classic bowl-cut.

Looks good. He's a good enough resemblence of the comic Doc Ock. I was hoping that the next villain would have been Venom, but I guess they have to go with the comic villains in chronological order. Maybe we'll see him in Spider-Man 3:D

Ahhh. Sapito.... I saw a custom 12" figure of him sell for 76 bucks on eBay...

His looks resemble what Doc Oc looked like but I am still trying to picture him in the part. I always thought that Doc Oc would of been a white guy who was a lab rat and looked more like a nerd. This guy doesn't put that image into my head.

Doc Oc is cool, but like Darklighter, i was hoping for Venom and Carnage...oh well, i thought Harry would have been the villian, because he does become the new green goblin, and in the movie he swore revenge on spiderman. oh well guess i was wrong. wonder what the octopus is doing, maybe it will show those tentacle things getting welded to his spin! that would be cool.

Have you seen Species? Molina was pretty convincing as a nerdy scientist in that.

Nope I haven't seen Species. I guess I am still thinking about him as the guy in Raiders. I also agree with you other guys and would rather see someone like Carnage or Venom instead of anyone else.

Bah. Carnage was the worst Spider-Man villain ever, and Venom wasn't much better. Thankfully, I think the rights to Venom are tied up elsewhere, so he's unlikely to show up in the Spider-Man series.

Cool, I haven't heard anything about the new Spiderman movie except that they were making it. Doc Ock was always one of my favorite villians.

I wonder what they'll go with. The green jumpsuit thing, or the stylish three-piece suit? As long as the don't put him in that ridiculous kilt thing, I'll be happy.

OoO cant wait for this movie..

I don't know if the Lizard is still going to be in it. Raimi said at one stage that the Lizard would be in the sequel as a "secondary villain" but he seems to have backed away from this now.

I know defiently that Bruce Campbell will be in the second movie and heard rumors that he might play as The Lizard.

I know he was in the first one as the ring announcer and they were thinking of changing his character.

According to this article, James Franco (the guy who played Harry) is going to be in Spider Man 2. And if memory of the Spider Man cartoon serves me, Doc Oc worked for the Green Goblin a few times ;)

I had heard that, too. Bruce would make a good Lizard, but if he were going to be a Spider-Man villain, I'd like to see him as Kraven the Hunter. Or Hydro-Man.

Dam I wanna see Venom! I think hes one of the coolest Spiderman Villans. I dont know much about the chronology so if its not Venoms turn yet then whatever. But he better be in the next movie :). Btw this may be a stupid question to all you Spiderman fans cause like I said I dont know much about it, but does Harry Osborn become the Hob Goblin? It just seems logical to me since his dad was the Green Goblin and like father like son you know. Is that a stupid question? Tell me about the Hob Goblin a bit.

The Hobgoblin was a different character, but Harry did go on to become the next Green Goblin. Harry had been growing increasingly unstable ever since seeing his father killed during a fight with Spider-Man. When Harry and Peter were rooming together at college, Harry discovered that Peter was Spider-Man. He assumed the identity of the Green Goblin, and tried to avenge his father.

From what I remember the Hobgoblin was a guy named Jason Macendale. But he was hired by Norman Osborn at one time to take out the Kingpin. Then he took off with the goodies that Osborn gave him. He then worked for the Kinpin for a while but then double crossed him so he went solo for a little.

Someone that no one has mentioned that I would like to see is the Demogoblin and Solo. They are my favorite villians that aren't very well known. Then we also have the Sandman, Electro, The Scorpion, Tombstone, Hammerhead, the Chameleon, Hydro-Man, the Shocker, Vulture, and the Jackal left so there are so many possibilities.

I am a Spider-Man nerd :p

I can't remember who said it in the last thread but I still think Elton John would be perfect for the part of Doc Oc. :D

As funny as that is you have a good point. He looks just like him but the problem is could he act the part. I don't know if he has had a part in a movie before like a good signifacent one? Anyone know?
