WATCH: Leaked video and images from Spider-man: Far From Home show Jake Gyllenhaal as the villain Mysterio! UPDATED: Is that Spider-man Noir?!

October 1st, 2018 by Marc Comments

Well, there’s no question anymore… Jake Gyllenhaal definitely looks like he’s now the MCU’s latest supervillain…

New leaked images and video from the set of Spider-man: Far From home reveals Gyllenhaal with a suit and cape that certainly seems to agree with earlier rumours (here) that he was playing Mysterio!

We can see that the ‘fishbowl’ is missing from the suit and, while there could be numerous reasons for that, we reckon there’s a good chance that the helmet will be a CGI add-on in post-production.

“Debuting in The Amazing Spider-Man #13, Mysterio is Quentin Beck, a special effects wizard and stunt man working for a major Hollywood studio with dreams of making a name for himself in the film industry. However, he came to see his career in special effects as a dead-end job. His attempts to become an actor were poorly received, but he realized that his expertise in illusions could make him an effective supervillain.” Source: Wiki

We’re big fans of this guy and seeing him as this iconic Spidey villain? Yes, please!

And… is this Spider-man Noir? We know it’s called a stealth suit but that’s a bit too Batman Begins for us:


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
