Alfred Molina says he would reprise Doc Ock for The Sinister Six

Alfred Molina has been looking back at his performance as Doctor Octopus in Spider-Man 2 , and has confirmed that he would be more than happy to return to the role for The Sinister Six .

“That was the most fun I think I’ve ever had on a movie of that kind,” says Molina. “Those big, big sort of features where you spend like six months hanging off a wire, you know.”

“It was the first movie of that kind that I’d ever been involved in,” he continues. “I had a wonderful time. I loved it. I mean, I’d go back and do it again in a heartbeat.”

It’s thought that Doc Ock will be the character who assembles the rest of the villainous super-team, although we’d suggest it’s unlikely that Molina will be called upon for a second time. As the star admits himself, “no actor owns these roles.”

Directed by Drew Goddard, The Sinister Six will open in the US on 11 November 2016, with a UK date to be confirmed.
