May his role be a ~Mysterio~ no more!

Posted on

So the anticipation Marvel Studio's next Spider-Man film, Spider-Man: Far From Home, is REAL...but, besides the title, there's not a ton we know about the upcoming sequel, with the exception of rumors.

And, ICYMI, one of the MAJOR rumors this summer was that Jake Gyllenhaal would be playing the film's main villain, Mysterio, opposite Tom Holland's precious web-slinger.

Well, I'm happy to say that this is a rumor NO MORE, as today none other than Mr. Jake Gyllenhaal himself joined Instagram to post a VERY important, single video.

The criminally short video starts with Gyllenhaal reading The Amazing Spider-Man #311, the 1989 issue that features "the return of the man called Mysterio":

Could this issue be the basis of the plot for the upcoming sequel???

Gyllenhaal then VERY SLOWLY lowers the comic to reveal his shocked/confused face:

Also, clock the framed Spider-Man comic in the background, which appears to be The Amazing Spider-Man #66, which ALSO features Mysterio:

Then, the video cuts off right before he can ask a VERY important question:
