Kevin Feige Explains Why Didn’t Marvel Turn To The Green Goblin And Doc Ock Before Spider-Man: No Way Home

MOVIE NEWS – Kevin Feige explains why Spider-Man: No Way Home was the right movie for them



Marvel Comics can boast a vast and fascinating gallery of villains, with Spider-Man’s being the most memorable of them all. After all, we’re talking about some of the publisher’s most iconic adversaries like Green Goblin and Octopus. With these two names as a base, many are wondering what the reasons are for Marvel Studios not incorporating them into their franchise before No Way Home

Kevin Feige’s answer is not as complicated as many might think. In fact, it most likely matches the opinion of much of the public.

“For the first few films, it was always, ‘How do we do things that have never been done before?’ It did not occur to us to do a new Goblin story, or to do an Oscorp story, or to do Doc Ock, or anyone that had been done before, which is why Vulture and Mysterio were really the key characters. Even as we were doing that – and I had been saying for years, even before anybody asked me what I thought – that you can’t get better than Alfred Molina as Doc Ock. Stepping into those shoes would be very, very difficult. And wouldn’t it be fun to find a way, if you were ever going to bring Doc Ock back, it would have to be Alfred Molina, and in early development on this third Homecoming movie, we realized that thanks to the MCU, there was a way to do that.”

Kevin Feige’s words are consistent with public sentiment, and yet it’s still a long shot. Take the Joker, for example, Jack Nicholson’s Joker was said to be unbeatable until Heath Ledger and Joaquin Phoenix came along. What if a new incarnation of the Green Goblin or Octopus wouldn’t have been better but simply different? We will never know the answer.

This dilemma in no way prevented the Goblin, Octopus and the other villains from being a delight to watch, especially as their addition was vital to the expansion of the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the multiverse. A territory where, today more than ever, anything is possible. If you are interested, read our review of the movie here.
