A sinister plot twist awaits Tom Holland in Spider-Man: No Way Home. The following contains potential spoilers. In other words, you’ve been warned.
According to Small Screen, Doctor Octopus (Alfred Molina) switches sides.
Instead of joining Spider-Man’s other foes, he fights them.
While the initial trailers tease a menacing figure, he’ll flip the switch.
Speculation blasts the Internet about the Sinister Six.
So far, there are only five members.
They include Doctor Octopus, Green Goblin, Electro, Sandman, and the Lizard.
Who is the sixth?
However, if Doctor Octopus bails, there are two spots to fill.
That leaves the Vulture and Mysterio.
Yet, Mysterio supposedly died in Spider-Man: Far From Home.
There has to be a Tom Holland villain in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Spider-Man: Homecoming introduced Michael Mando as Mac Gargan.
In the comics, Gargan is the Scorpion.
Yes, the Scorpion is likely in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
After all, Marvel Studios doesn’t drop a seed and forget about it.
On the contrary, Gargan also became the third Venom symbiote.
Is that possible?
In Spider-Man: No Way Home, I doubt it.
But Tom Hardy’s Venom is an anti-hero.
Spider-Man could battle Gargan’s Venom in the future.
The Scorpion with either Mysterio or the Vulture completes the Sinister Six.
Of course, that’s without Doctor Octopus.
Still, Doctor Octopus’ role reversal shouldn’t be a shock.
Indeed, he sacrificed himself in Spider-Man 2.
Edward Lauder revealed:
The version of the character he’s playing is the same one.
Thus, he’s no bad guy.
In addition, Lauder observed that:
Doctor Octopus is missing from the final battle scene.
Tom Holland Faces Sinister Plot Twist In Spider-Man: No Way Home
To clarify, Spider-Man: No Way Home is a series of redemption arcs.
Tom Holland’s Spider-Man is becoming an adult.
He’s learning the price of having extraordinary powers.
Of course, this redeems his failure in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
In that movie, Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) died from a similar situation.
It was Garfield’s fault; he won’t make the same mistake.
By the same token, Doctor Octopus learned his lesson.
Sources expressed that Sony and Disney buzzed about Tom Holland in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
An insider acknowledged:
Tom Holland shows incredible range.
Tickets for Spider-Man: No Way Home are on sale November 29.
