Well, it appears the rumors are true for Spider-Man: Far From Home. Ol’ fishbowl-head, Mysterio himself, will be gracing the silver screen alongside Spidey next year. This is evident given a recently posted Twitter video of Jake Gyllenhaal acting out a scene in the upcoming spider-film.
If you recall, Gyllenhaal was rumored to be playing the Master of Illusion himself months ago.
Check out the video below:

Just check out that costume. It leaves little room for doubt that Gyllenhaal is playing Mysterio. The man looks like a modern-day warlock.
The video was shot in the city of Liberec during the end of filming and is one of the final scenes of the film.
What’s more, the scene being shot seems intense. Mysterio (or Quentin Beck, as he is otherwise known) appears to be fighting Spider-Man. However, the cops get on the case just as the battle winds down.
Spider-Man: Far From Home is due to hit cinemas July 5, 2019. It will also star Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Marissa Tomei, Zendaya, Colbie Smulders and Samuel L. Jackson.
In addition, Jacob Batalon, Tony Revolori, and Hemky Madera reprise their roles as Ned, Flash, and Mr. Delmar respectively.
Far From Home will also feature some brand new characters to boot. Numan Acar has been cast as Dmitri while J. B. Smoove, Oli Hill, and Remy Hii have been cast in currently undisclosed roles.
Jon Watts, who directed Spider-Man: Homecoming, also directs this sequel. Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, two of the screenwriters from the previous film, return to pen the installment.
The film follows Peter Parker and his friends as they go on a summer vacation to Europe. Spider-Man: Far From Home will launch the fourth phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and is set after the fourth Avengers film.
Are you looking forward to seeing Gyllenhaal as Mysterio? We’d love to hear your thoughts!
