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

It's finally official. Jake Gyllenhaal will be donning the giant glass dome to play the big bad in the next Spider-Man solo movie, Spider-Man: Far From Home. But now at last, it seems we have confirmation, from the horse's (evil magician's) mouth. 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).

The role will be the actor's first major part in a superhero blockbuster film.

This marks the first time that anyone involved with Far From Home has confirmed Mysterio's inclusion in the film.

"And there is a sense of the scenes, with the casting in particular and also the storytelling, that you feel that you're actually in a movie with human beings in it".
