Writer Randy Jandt makes his “The Spectacular Spider-Man” debut with a tight, exciting, frequently funny script that offers Doctor Octopus entrÃ©e into the series this Saturday, May 3 in the all-new episode, “Reaction.” The episode, directed by Jennifer Coyle, premieres at 10:00 a.m. ET/PT on Kids’ WB! on The CW.
In the episode, the nebbishy Dr. Otto Octavius is painfully transformed â€“ by the meddling hands of the Green Goblin â€“ into the menacing Doctor Octopus. The newest villain to hit town, Doc Ock releases his initial anger on Norman Osborne before turning his attention toward Spider-Man as the pair battle for the ultimate power source to Doc Ock’s extended limbs.
Jandt took a few moments this week to answer three quick questions regarding his thought process in penning the script for the episode.
