Spider Man To Face Off Against Green Goblin Doc Ock In the MCU According to Reports And Fans Are Angry

MCU has quite a slate of movies coming up, even though Marvel Studios has hit a rough patch with the last couple of projects. There have been talks about releasing fewer projects, as fans are definitely becoming tired of shows and movies of lower quality; still, if one character always managed to drag people to movies, it’s Spider-Man, by far the most profitable Marvel franchise, no matter the product you’re looking at.

So far, talking about the MCU specifically, Spider-Man has three standalone movies and a fourth on the way. This was confirmed several months ago by producer Amy Pascal, who confirmed that the work on the sequel has been ongoing but stopped due to the solidarity with the ongoing WGA Strike at the time.

Now that the development of the movie is going full steam ahead, there are some new rumors to cover regarding who Tom Holland will fight in the 4th installment. According to Cosmic Circus’ Alex Perez, Spider-Man will face off against Doc Ock and Green Goblin again in the MCU. It’s unknown whether former actors will return to reprise their roles.

Fans are understandably disappointed, no matter how good those villains were portrayed the first (or second…) time around, Spider-Man has a pretty extensive rogue gallery but the filmmakers eventually always decided to adapt the same villains over and over again.

Although this does have the potential to be a great story, it does come off as creatively bankrupt. If the actors are re-cast, we’re likely getting one more multiversal story with variants.
