Will Jake Gyllenhaal Play Mysterio?

The word is on the street that Jake Gyllenhaal is currently in talks with Marvel Studios, where it is thought he is going to be cast as Mysterio in the new filmĀ Spider-Man: HomecomingĀ sequel. The film is due for release in cinemas on the 5th July 2019 – it will be written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, and directed by Jon Watts. Tom Holland will once again be playing the title character.

Many actors before Gyllenhaal, including Quentin Beck, Daniel Berkhart and Franci Klum. Beck’s Mysterio is the most famous and has come to be associated with the villain for many.

Funnily, Gyllenhaal previously ended up almost playing Spider-Man once before, when he was played by Toby Maguire. Maguire hurt his back during filming for Seabiscuit and it was thought Gyllenhaal would step into the role, but Maguire recovered in time for filming. Let’s hope Gyllenhaal makes the cut this time…
