Jared Harris is not growing tentacles, Spider-Man fans

While Peter Parker is the OG star of the Spider-Man comics, Sony is banking on the popularity of the world which Marvel created and is about to release a spin-off based on Dr. Michael Morbius. 

Jared Leto is set to star as the titular character who is a scientist dying of a rare blood disease that accidentally turns himself into a vampire. The trailer for Morbius was recently released, with the Chernobyl actor giving fans food for thought that he’ll be playing another Spidey villain — Dr. Otto Octavius aka Doc Ock. 

“No,” Harris said when asked by Variety if that was the case. “I love the imagination that the fans have, it’s exciting for me to think about the imagination that fans have. But yeah no, it’s not.”

We’ll have to wait until July 31st to find out who he’s really playing…
