Spider-Man: Far From Home's Jake Gyllenhaal Confirms He's Playing Mysterio


The actor, who also debuted on Instagram a few hours ago, decided to make his first post on the social media platform about the Spider-Man role.

The "Donnie Darko" star just joined Instagram and this was his first post.

Jake confirmed in a video that he will be playing the classic Marvel villain Mysterio in the upcoming movie Spider-Man Far From Home.

Gyllenhaal was most recently seen onscreen in Jacques Audiard film The Sisters Brothers and in Paul Dano's Wildlife. The title of this issue in particular is 'The Return of the Man Called Mysterio!' and Jake suddenly realises his role in the next Sony/Marvel collaboration. The actor teases fans over realising that he's not playing Spider-Man, while reading a comic with Mysterio on the cover (and another such cover is framed on the wall behind him). However, the actor and the studio behind the upcoming superhero film have been mum on the topic.

Spider-Man creators, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, introduced Mysterio in the comics in 1964.

I really like the usage of the Seattle Seahawks colors here. "If it was someplace else, I wouldn't have done it". Adding Seattle triggers division realignment that bumps the Arizona Coyotes to the Central Division.

A World Cup year, though, resets the generally understood criteria to judge what it takes for a player to rise above his peers. His incredible goal in the final even made him the second teenager in history to score in a World Cup final.

It's good fun, and a sign that we can expect the marketing for Spider-Man: Far From Home to start ramping up.

Mysterio is a special effects expert who commits crimes and fights Spider-Man using elaborate illusions, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Sony and Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel is due to be released on 5 July, 2019.
