He quickly won fans hearts back in the 2004 sequel of Spider-Man 2 as Otto Octavius, a distinguished scientist who becomes an eight-limbed villain, pushing Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man character to his limits.

Another familiar face is returning for the highly anticipated Spider-Man 3, as Alfred Molina will be back as Doctor Octopus. Additional cast members include Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange and Jamie Foxx as Electro.

As reported by Collider, it has been confirmed that Alfred Molina will be in the third MCU Spider-Man movie. I mean, the OG Spider-Man 3 with Venom, Sandman and an emo Spider-Man? The Spider-Verse crossover is touted to be an epic one!

Directed by Jon Watts, Spider-Man 3 will also feature Zendaya, Marisa Tomei and Jacob Batalon.

Molina's involvement was first rumoured last month, when he was reportedly spotted on the set of the movie.

Although we're yet to get any official casting news from Sony or Marvel Studios, there's certainly lots of reports and rumours flying around about the currently-in-production Spider-Man 3. It's fascinating to take note of that, up until now, just two of the lowlifess related with the Sam Raimi and Marc Webb Spider-Man films are returning.

Tom Holland is Spider-Man in Columbia Pictures' SPIDER-MAN: ™ FAR FROM HOME. But there is no confirmation that Tom Holland's Spider-Man will be joined by either Maguire or Andrew Garfield.

JK Simmons' return as the cranky editor J Jonah Jameson in Spider-Man: Far From Home was shocking and totally unexpected.

Tobey Maguire has also been confirmed to be in negotiations, alongside Emma Stone, who played Gwen Stacy in the Garfield films. Strange's next solo movie also happens to be titled "The Multiverse of Madness".

On Tuesday it was announced that the 67-year-old British born actor would be returning as the villainous inventor in the Tom Holland led installment, which is now slated for theaters on December 17.
