Jake Gyllenhaal will be Mysterio in the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel and Michael Keaton will return


This will be cool if it comes to pass. Jake Gyllenhaal is in talks to play the classic Marvel villain Mysterio in the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming.

A special effects expert, Quentin Beck (aka Mysterio) used his talents to create elaborate illusions to commit crimes and to fight Spider-Man.

Quentin Beck does not possess superhuman abilities but he is an expert designer of special effects devices and stage illusions, a master hypnotist and magician and an amateur chemist and roboticist. He has extensive knowledge of hand-to-hand combat techniques learned as a stuntman, allowing him to engage in combat with Spider-Man despite his foe’s superior physical abilities and using his skills at misdirection as a further method of self-defense. Mysterio’s suit includes many devices to aid him. His helmet is made of one-way plexiglas, meaning he can see out but no one can see in. The helmet also includes an air supply to protect him from his own gases, sonar to navigate within his mist cloak and a holographic projector to create 3D illusions. His boots contain magnetic coil springs which allow him impressive leaps as well as the ability to cling to surfaces. Mysterio’s costume contains nozzles in the boots and wrists that can release a constant stream of smoke that shields his movements.

The character always had a cool visual look with that weird glass dome covering his head. After watching Gyllenhaal in Nightcrawler I can see him being wonderful as the twisted, obsessive Mysterio.

According to THR, Jon Watts is returning to direct the sequel. Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, two of the screenwriters behind the first movie, are back as well.

Variety is also reporting that Michael Keaton will return as The Vulture so we could finally be seeing the proper beginnings of The Sinister Six!

There is no word as to whether the sequel will be set before or after Avengers: Infinity War.

Sony and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel is set for July 5, 2019.
