Jake Gyllenhaal Teases Mysterio Ahead Of Spider-Man: Far From Home Trailer


Okay, so this isn't really news, given that we've already seen him suited up in set photos earlier this year, but actor Jake Gyllenhaal has now given us official confirmation that he'll be bringing the classic Spidey villain Mysterio to the big screen in next year's Marvel and Sony-produced sequel Spider-Man: Far From Home.

The actor, 37, used his first-ever Instagram post to announce his role in the action film. He posted a video as his very first post on the social media site.

Jake captioned the video, "I just realized I'm not playing Spider-Man".

Within hours of posting the video, the clip received hundreds of thousands of views.

Jake's announcement comes months after it was reported the actor would be playing the villain.

The character of Mysterio, aka Quentin Beck, was introduced into the comics by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko in 1964.

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

Tom Holland also returns for The Avengers 4 on May 3, 2019.
