Spider-Man: Far From Home set photos show Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio
A handful of set photos, and one video, from the MCU’s Spider-Man: Far From Home shows what appears to be Jake Gyllenhaal (The Sisters Brothers) as the costumed villain, Mysterio. A former special effects artist, Mysterio uses his skills to try and get the best of everyone’s favorite webhead. The images don’t reveal that much, but it’s clear that Gyllenhaal looks to be sporting the conspicuously extravagant costume that’s made him a stand-out villain in the wall-crawler’s rogue’s gallery. Check out the images below (via Comic Book Movie).
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige previously confirmed the 2019 sequel will take Peter Parker out of New York for a European adventure in London that will reflect the global aftermath of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4.
Holland previously confirmed a third film is also in the works. The follow-up will feature Tom Holland’s Peter Parker in his Junior year at Midtown School of Science and Technology following the events of 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War and its summer 2019 sequel, which will also feature Holland as Spider-Man.
Confirmed Spider-Man: Far From Home cast members include Tom Holland as your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, plus Zendaya and Marisa Tomei as “MJ” and Aunt May. Jake Gyllenhaal will play Mysterio while Michael Keaton is set to return as Adrian Toomes/The Vulture. New additions include comedian J.B. Smoove and Numan Acar (Aladdin) as Dimitri. It was also reported that MCEU veterans Samuel L. Jackson (Captain Marvel) and Cobie Smulders have also signed on to join Holland’s Spider-Man sequel as Nick Fury and Maria Hill respectively.
