Mark Hamill "Likes" the Idea of Him Playing MCU Doctor Octopus

Now that Mark Hamill is coming to the end of his time playing iconic characters like Luke Skywalker and The Joker, fans are already coming up with the next geek culture character Hamill should play, and there's a clear frontrunner right now: Spider-Man nemesis, Doctor Octopus!

Mark Hamill Likes Idea of Playing Doctor Octopus

As you can see, Mark Hamill endorsed the concept of playing the Marvel Cinematic Universe Doc Ock with a "like," which is kind of like a first audition for major stars to land a Marvel role.

In all seriousness though, Hamill definitely fits the bill as a potential candidate to play the new Otto Octavius, able to oscillate between earnest mentor type and creepy madman almost too seamlessly. Besides the thrill of seeing Hamill lead a Sinister Six storyline in either the MCU or Sony's Spider-Man universe, most fans would probably love seeing the actor take on the "Superior Spider-Man" arc fromt eh comics, which saw Octavius transport his consciousness into Peter Parker's body for a time, forcing him to also take over the duty of being Spider-Man.
