Rosalie Octavius
Rosie Octavius
Name: Rosie Octavius
Alias(es): Rosie
Spouse(s): Otto Octavius
Portrayed by: Donna Murphy
First appeared: Spider-Man 2
Appears in: 1 Film

Rosalie Octavius was the wife and scientific assistant of Otto Octavius. Her character was created specifically for the 2004 film Spider-Man 2 and she was portrayed by American stage actress Donna Murphy.


Rosie Octavius is a very rare, elegant person. With a passionate but loving streak, her devotion to her husband, Dr. Otto Octavius, and her attachment to poetry, that's what makes her a cool, foreign character.

Even though her and Otto don't always see eye-to-eye, but respect of their own opinions , it's evident that they couldn't have done anything without one another.

Her number one recipe, according to her and Otto, is poetry; when Peter told them about his being single, they believe poetry works.

On the day of their experiment, which went awry not too long, everything was hectic. Their apartment was eventually demolished, the violence scared away the spectators and other scientists.

Harry Osborn, who helped with the funding, lost all of the money. Rosie herself died via cut by many shards of glass-straight at the neck and her eyes, but worst of all Otto's aiding mechanical arms got fused to his body after the AI chip got permanently fried, due to the electric source from the solar experiment.

If not for Spiderman, more than enough chaos would've been created. Even when he died too and realized his mistake, Rosie's death would possibly scar him forever.


Spider-Man 2Edit

Rosie, in her 40s, studied English Literature in her youth and researched the subject as College. It was at university that she would meet her future husband Otto who was studying Physics at the same time along with his friend Curt Connors.

Rosie would support Otto during his research to construct a sustainable fusion power reactor.

Otto finishes building his prototype and he holds a demonstration to show his device to his funder Harry Osborn, the press and his scientific colleagues.

Though the experiment overloads and becomes unstable, Otto refuses to stop it arguing it would stabilise. However, this proved to be another miscalculation and the reactor pulled mettalic objects inside its core. They travelled straight in the path of Rosie and she was killed as a result.

Otto survived, and upon recovering, the knowledge of Rosie's death would only further his fall from grace to become the villainous "Doctor Octopus".
