Spiderman : Far from Home – New set photo gives us our first look at Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio2 min read


Previously , we heard Jake Gyllenhaal being cast as the Spiderman super villain Mysterio which helped put the rumors of him being Batman at bay. Now we have a first look at the actor donning the iconic suit and yes , it looks quite impressive.

While he is still not wearing the fish bowl , we are probably looking at the end of the movie. And the fight taking place seems to be the ultimate fight between Tom Holland’s Peter Parker and Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio. Have a look : 





The character’s origin goes all back to 1964 when  Stan Lee and Steve Ditko created the character. The villain debuted in The Amazing Spider-Man #13. Several character has taken the mantle of Mysterio but the most notable one is Quentin Beck.

With dreams to make a name for himself in the film industry , Beck began his career as a movie stuntman in Hollywood. He became one of the most accomplished special effects designers in the industry, but due to lack of recognition, he wanted to become an actor.

However, he lacked the looks and talent to be a star and the patience to be a director, and saw his career in special-effects to be a dead-end job. When a friend of his jokingly suggested that the quickest way to become famous was to take out a costumed hero, Beck realized that his expertise in illusions could make him an effective super-villain. Gyllenhaal’s antagonist could be taking a similar route.

Spider-Man (Tom Holland) also features in the video above , still sporting what looks like a black stealth suit. Spider-man : Far from Home will see Peter travel with his friends to an Europe tour and will feature the likes of popular MCU faces like Nick Fury , Maria Hill and Happy Hogan. Let us know what you feel about this first look in the section down below and follow us for more superhero updates.
