  • Looking Back at Jake Gyllenhaal's Stacked Dating History

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).

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.

The actor continued to fuel rumors he would be playing the comic book baddie when he was spotted over the summer in London, where the movie is being filmed.


The Nightcrawler actor has always been rumoured to be portraying Quentin Beck / Mysterio - a key enemy of Spider-Man in the Marvel Comics - in the upcoming film, a sequel to 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige previously confirmed the 2019 sequel will take Peter Parker out of NY for a European adventure in London that will reflect the global aftermath of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4.

But, with a sequel on the way, it's more than likely that Peter Parker, and several of the other Avengers who were killed, will somehow be returning in "Avengers 4" (theoretically with some help from "Captain Marvel"), setting things up for "Spider-Man: Far From Home" - which hits theaters on July 5, 2019. The villain was first featured in The Amazing Spider-Man #13 in June 1964. Created by the late Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, the villain is a special-effects wizard, if you will. Quentin Beck is a Hollywood special-effects artist and stunt man who decides that he wants to put his heart into being a super-villain instead.
