According to his Instagram, Jake Gyllenhaal is in London. Do you know what else is going on in London? Filming for Spiderman: Far From Home, a movie in which Gyllenhaal has been heavily rumored to be attached to. Now, this doesn’t confirm that Gyllenhaal will be joining the MCU to play the villain Mysterio, but it can be assumed this is a step in the right direction, especially considering he was pictured with well known makeup artist, Donald Mowat.
As I said, this is all speculation, and Kevin Feige looks to keep any concrete news regarding the Homecoming sequel under wraps. Especially considering Far From Home will be the next film to release after the untitled Avengers 4 movie. But how could would it be to have Gyllenhaal play Mysterio, a character who was introduced in the 1964’s Amazing Spider-Man #13 and has been an enemy of Spidey ever since, alongside an already established villain in Michael Keaton’s Vulture?
