No Way Home Suit can be Iron Man Tech or worse
New footage from Spider-Man: No Way Home suggests Doc Ock may be getting an upgrade with some tech from the MCU’s Iron Man – or Spider-Man himself.
The next Spider-Man: No Path Home sees the Marvel Cinematic Universe collide with other universes in the Wall Robot’s cinematic history. Amid this crisis in the multiverse, Tom Holland’s Spider-Man is about to come face to face with enemies first fought by the webhead’s versions of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. The most important of these is Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octopus, last seen in 2004 in Sam Raimi’s film. Spider-man 2. While fans are hoping to see the MCU’s Spidey team up with his Alternate Reality predecessors, Spider-Man may not be the only one seeking help across the multiverse.
The range of deadly enemies to face Peter Parker in No way home could also look to build their strength by taking advantage of the MCU’s unique offerings. A new image shows Molina’s Doctor Octopus with a touch of red and gold added to his mechanical tentacles. Fans quickly made a connection to Tony Stark’s Iron Man tech, wondering if the supervillain might have taken advantage of the MCU’s cutting edge technology to improve his own.
The image, one of many published by Empire Magazine, shows a snarling Otto Octavius ââequipped with the upgraded arms. Nothing else is given, although its road surroundings – including a car suspended by a canvas from the bridge above – could suggest that this is a moment of the scene seen in the trailer. , who sees Ock confronting Peter Parker while he is apparently on the move. its way to or from the court. Interestingly, other shots in this scene don’t appear to include the Iron Man-themed increase in mechanical arms. But another new image could explain the upgrade.
In another look at this showdown between Doc Ock and Spider-Man, Spidey is shown trapped in Ock’s grip, lifted off the ground by a metal tentacle as another grabs him by the head. Spider-Man is wearing the Iron Spider armor in this scene, which was originally gifted to him by Tony Stark in Avengers: Infinity War (after being seen for the first time in Spider-Man: Homecoming). After Tony’s death in Avengers: Endgame, the Iron Spider suit is one of the few Stark tech armor suits still in use in the MCU, and possibly the only one still in use that uses Tony’s nanotechnology. While he has Spider-Man under his hand, Doc Ock could absorb the nanobots that make up Spidey’s costume, reusing Iron Spider technology to strengthen his own arms. Such a move would not only strengthen Ock, but would leave Spider-Man without one of his most powerful assets, just when he’s about to need all the help he can get.
Of course, there are other possible explanations for Ock’s new arm increase. A brilliant scientist in his own right, Otto Octavius ââcould have made the adjustments on his own Earth, following his supposed death at the end of Spider-man 2. However, Molina’s previous comments, claiming that Otto’s story picks up “from” that moment “in the river”, with his digital aging in No way home, could suggest that Doc Ock entered the MCU moments after he was seen drifting through the water in Spider-man 2the final of. What we don’t know yet is how long he is in this universe before facing Peter Parker. No way home can see Ock break into an Avengers facility – or even a disused SHIELD facility – to steal Stark’s technology for his own sinister ends.
The idea of ââOtto Octavius ââharnessing Tony Stark’s technology presents terrifying possibilities to the friendly Spider-Man neighborhood of the MCU. Although he had faced enemies equipped with technology stolen from Tony Stark or enemies of the Avengers in the past, none of them possessed the formidable mind of Doctor Octopus. If one of Spider-Man’s greatest foes is about to use some of the MCU’s most advanced tech, the Wall Robot is going to need all the help it can get.
To see Spidey take on an upgraded Doc Ock, Spider-Man: No Way Home is in theaters on December 17th.
