Spider-Man: Far From Home will see actor Jake Gyllenhaal stepping into the shoes of the classic Spider-man nemesis Mysterio. New promo art from the latest issue of Empire Magazine via Reddit has finally offered the first look at Gyllenhaal’s Quentin Beck aka Mysterio sans his iconic goldfish-bowl helmet.
The promo art in question shows the actor wearing the armor that was previously seen in set pictures during the filming of Spider-Man: Far From Home in the Czech Republic. It appears Mysterio has some spells hovering around his hands. There’s also a small write-up on the movie below the promo art that describes Mr. Beck as a former special-effects genius who creates eerily realistic illusions to bamboozle Spider-Man.
The write-up mentions that plot details about the film are being kept under very tight wraps considering Peter Parker’s current MCU status. Parker was among the ones who fall prey to Thanos deadly snap at the end of Avengers: Infinity War.

Earlier this month, Gyllenhaal shared a video of himself on his Instagram account that showed him reading 1989’s Amazing Spider-Man #311, written by David Micheline and illustrated by Todd McFarlane, featuring Mysterio as the main antagonist.
“Whoa…what the f–” gasps Gyllenhaal at the end of the video.
Well, surprisingly, Mysterio isn’t a full on bad guy. Actor Jacob Batalon who plays Peter’s friend Ned in Spider-Man films, revealed to Collider that Spider-Man: Far From Home will see Spiderman joining hands with illusionist Mysterio to save the world from the Elemental monsters. During the interview, Gyllenhaal revealed that Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury is the one who will recruit Mysterio to work with Spiderman as he knows a lot about the Elementals.
Directed by Jon Watts, Spider-Man: Far From Home will kick off MCU Phase 4 when it arrives in theatres on July 5, 2019.
