The beard and long hair suggest a villain who has become obsessed with defeating his adversary. That smile is a sinister indication that Otto has the upper hand over Tom Holland’s Spider-Man. And why shouldn’t he? MCU Peter Parker has never seen Doctor Octopus in action, so you can understand why the arrival of a tentacled threat would catch him completely off guard.
