Alfred Molina was reprimanded by Kevin Feige for spoiling his 'Spider-Man: No Way Home' return
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: If you are a fan of 'Spider Man' movies, you know the second movie in the original franchise is one of the best superhero movies ever made. Released in 2004, the movie, titled 'Spider-Man 2', turned out to be really successful because of epic storytelling and superb performances from the actors, especially Alfred Molina. Molina played the role of Doctor Octopus and took everyone by storm. 17 years later, Molina returned to the franchise in the 2021 movie 'Spider-Man: No Way Home' in which we saw other people from multiple universes enter Peter Parker's (Tom Holland) universe.
People were really excited to see Molina and other former 'Spider Man' cast members in the movie. The film turned out to be extremely successful and everyone applauded Molina's performance. However, it seems Molina was too excited to be a part of the franchise again and accidentally told someone from the field of media about his involvement with the movie.
While speaking in a recent interview with Radio Times, the 69-year-old actor noted that he got into a bit of trouble with Marvel when he accidentally revealed to the media that he was a part of 'No Way Home' and all the media outlets started to come out with stories of how he was returning to the world of 'Spider-Man'.
He said, "Just accidentally, I was talking to a journalist who said, 'So, you know, how's the Spider-Man movie going?' And I went, 'Oh, great thanks'. Then literally the next day, Variety was like, 'Alfred Molina reveals Doc Ock returns'."
The media went berserk after the confirmation and Molina had to face the wrath of Marvel bosses. Molina stated that he started getting phone calls from Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal. But Feige got so annoyed with it that he even trolled the actor on a red-carpet event.
"I got into such trouble. I was getting phone calls from Amy Pascal, Kevin Feige was on the red carpet somewhere and somebody asked him about some Marvel movie and apparently he got a bit snippy and turned around and said, 'Ask Alfred Molina'," said Molina. So now, he can neither "confirm" nor "deny" if he's going to return to the world of 'Spider Man'.
Molina is not the only one who got into hot water for revealing secrets about Marvel projects. Actors like Tom Holland and Mark Ruffalo are infamous for letting spoilers escape their tongues. It would be interesting to see Molina returning to the MCU again and 'Avengers: Secret Wars' might be the project where we could see him because the movie might feature almost every Marvel superhero and villain.
