Should Doc Ock be memorable in Spider-Man: No Way Home?

In a recent interview, Spider-Man: No Way Home VFX Supervisor Scott Gemstone shared some details about the character of Dr. Otto Octavius, aka Doc Ock, dished it up and also talked about the memes.

Speak with The edge Nearly three months after the film’s release, Scott revealed how the VFX crew accomplished the feat of creating some of the most stunning visuals ever seen in a superhero film.

The manager is a VFX supervisor for Digital Domain, one of the production houses that worked on Tom Holland’s latest film.

Should Doc Ock be memorable in No Way Home?

While the Doc Ock memes started rolling right after No way home‘s trailer release, the creators didn’t intend to make the character memorable.

In a recent Interview, when The Verge asked Scott Gemstone, “Does meme potential play a role in your creative process at all?”

The VFX supervisor said the team didn’t have much time to think about memes. “There’s so little time and you’re just in this little box,” said the manager.

“Our main focus is to make it all look as real as possible. I think if you’re conscious of anything, it’s just “that move doesn’t look good” or “he doesn’t feel real” or “this character wouldn’t do that.”

The supervisor went on to clarify that “as far as we think this far ahead of time about what memes might come out of it, we really don’t.”

Here’s the logic behind Doc Ock’s tentacles

Speak with The edge, Digital Domain’s Scott stressed that the filmmaker’s intention to present Doc Ock in his almost OG form was in No way home was a tribute to the character.

“We wanted the arms’ personality to be expressed in a similar way, but we also wanted to bring new technology into the mix to give them more character,” said the VFX supervisor.

“We had Alfred Molina on wires sometimes, and sometimes he was on a platform that lifted him around. In the end, it mostly ended up being more comfortable on that platform and not just dangling around.”

One of the things most fans loved was how Otto interacted with his tentacles. To shed more light on their development, the filmmaker said that the inner lights in the tentacles change color depending on who is in control.

Hence, on the bridge, we see them turning blue as Spider-Man takes over with nanotechnology. Later in the film, when Doc Ock takes charge again, they turn white, just like in Spiderman 2.

Fans are reacting to the insider’s revelations

Immediately after Scott’s interview made the rounds on social media, fans took to Twitter to give their opinions.

“Ironic that remote work is talked about so much in an article about a movie called ‘No Way Home,'” wrote one fan.

“Really missed opportunity to headline this ‘Spider-Man: Work From Home’ article,” said another Spidey fan.
