Jake Gyllenhaal Cast as Mysterio in Upcoming Spider-Man Film
According to reports, Jake Gyllenhaal has been cast in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel, presumably as the villain Mysterio. We are definitely excited to see how Marvel/Sony and Gyllenhaal handle this role. Mysterio is one of the last great Spider-Man villains to make it to the big screen and it's about damn time!
I'm a big fan of this casting as Gyllenhaal has proved on multiple occasions that he is capable of handling a dark, villainous role. Mysterio will definitely provide to theatrics in the sequel, which is scheduled to be released July 5th, 2019. Michael Keaton is also slated to reprise his role as the Vulture.
P.S. Thank you Sony for allowing Marvel to integrate Spider-Man into the MCU. Like seriously...
