Marvel Studios’ Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel Spider-Man: Far from Home will see Tom Hollands’ Peter Parker pitted against Jake Gyllenhaal’s classic Spidey villain Mysterio. But, despite being a villain character, Mysterio isn’t a bad guy, at least according to actor Jacob Batalon who plays Peter’s friend Ned in the MCU’s Spider-Man films.
Batalon who appeared along with Holland, and Gyllenhaal, at Brazil’s Comic-Con CCXP held earlier this month, offered some interesting Spider-Man: Far from Home plot details via Collider. He explained that the film will see Peter and his friends head to a European vacation to London, Prague, Liberec, and Venice on some kind of school trip, where he will be forced to get into the Spider-Man avatar. He revealed that Spiderman will eventually be joining hands with illusionist Mysterio to save the world from the Elemental monsters.
“It’s basically just about the kids going on a European vacation. We go to London, we go to Prague, we go everywhere. It’s just a really fun thing. There’s a lot of dynamics that go on. A lot of relationship stuff. A lot of cool fun stuff. A lot of fun stunt stuff,” Batalon said. “The main focus is for him not to be Spider-Man per se, but he gets dragged into it. But you know he reluctantly saves the world again with Mysterio. Mysterio’s a good guy in this, they’re both teaming up to kill the game, to defeat these Elemental monsters.”
Actor Jake Gyllenhaal went on adding that Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury recruits Mysterio to work with Spiderman as he knows more about the Elementals than anyone else.
“Well there are these threats to the world, the Elemental creatures, and Mysterio is someone who knows about them and who wants to make sure that the world is safe from them, and Nick Fury asks him to come on and help because he’s the only one who really understands them in a way,” Gyllenhaal said. “And he teams up with the Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man and unfortunately, he has to make him become more than just a Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man.”
