Much of the success of the film is thanks to Sam Raimi himself, the director, because if it had not been for his vision that stands out in the game between terror and comedy, perhaps the result would not have been the same, becoming one of Sony’s most precious jewels. After this journey between incredible costumes and green screens, Raimi continued his course with other films, returning to his passion for horror and fantasy with projects such as Oz, the Mighty – 59% or Drag me to Hell – 92%.
Peter Parker continued to be present on the big screen with new versions, such as Andrew Garfield and then Tom Holland, which would mark an interesting alliance with Disney to include him in the MCU. But now that phase 4 is in full swing, it is not surprising that they want to explore all the possibilities that the characters offer, and thanks to the aforementioned alliance, some of the roles posed in the previous Spider-Man films are preparing to return.
Phase 4 not only brings those characters back, it also marks Raimi’s return to the world of superheroes, although he will now be in charge of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, who will clearly have a connection to Spider-Man: No way home. With all this, it would be impossible not to ask the filmmaker his opinion on the return of Alfred Molina as Doctor Octopus, being the first actor who already made his first appearance in the trailer.

It is possible that the filmmaker is aware of what will happen in the film directed by Jon Watts by the presence of Doctor Strange, and although he knows which other actors will return, he will not say it, but having him back in the game, just like that Alfred Molina is, without a doubt, something exciting for those who grew up with his films of the Spiderman. So far it is known that the Green Goblin and the Sandman will be present in the film thanks to the glimpses that the trailer offered.
