The eagerly awaited second trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Homelanded online on Wednesday and gave fans another tantalising glimpse at what’s going on in this movie that features characters from multiple Spider-Man films.

As is the trend with many major blockbusters these days, a number of hashtags were created to allow fans to connect with each other and celebrate their favourite characters.

One character who was treated to one of these hashtags is the villain Doctor Octopus, with Alfred Molina reprising the role that he first played in Spider-Man 2 opposite Tobey Maguire way back in 2004.
