Morbius star Jared Harris says that he is not playing Spider-Man villain Doctor Octopus in the upcoming Jared Leto film.
There is a lot of mystery surrounding the upcoming Spider-Man spinoff film. Fans were shocked to see Michael Keaton pop up at the end of the film’s trailer for an apparent appearance as Spider-Man antagonist Adrain Tooms, a.k.a. The Vulture. Some have speculated that this could be setting up a potential Sinister Six film which Sony has been trying to make for some time now. More interestingly, some have even speculated that Morbius may be setting up an appearance by Spider-Man villain Doctor Octopus.
Another mystery surrounding Morbius is the role of Jared Harris. The name of his character has not been revealed and some have speculated that Jared Harris may, in fact, playing Spider-Man villain Doctor Octopus. Unfortunately for all of us, Jared Harris has already shot this Doctor Octopus idea down.
While speaking to Variety, Jared Harris was directly asked if he was playing Spider-Man antagonist, Doctor Octopus. The Morbius star flat out denied that he was playing Doctor Octopus although he did say that he loved the imagination of fans:
“No. I love the imagination that the fans have, it’s exciting for me to think about the imagination that that fans have. But yeah no, it’s not.”
