Marvel's Spiderman: Far From Home will be the sequel to the 2017 flick Spiderman: Homecoming which starred Tom Holland in the lead as Spiderman. A recent statement from cast members states that Spiderman's most popular villans Mysterio will not be seen as the antagonist in the fil but will be teaming up with Spidey. Mysterio will be played by Jake Gyllenhaal in the film, which serves a direct sequel to 2017 Marvel Film. Jacob Batalon, who plays Peter Parker’s best friend, Ned, in the series, revealed the details in a recent appearance.
Jacob had stated that Mysterio will not be playing the bad but instead will be teaming up with Spidey and fighting crimes side by side. It would appear from Gyllenhaal’s statements that Mysterio will be recruited as a ‘hero’ by Sheild's Head Nick Fury. Since it is still unclear as to when the film's timeline will be set it could take place after the events of Avengers: Endgame or be set in a different timeline altogether.
In the comics, the character is a special effects technician who works in the movies and uses those same effects in his criminal endeavors. A trailer description that emerged after the Brazil Comic Con confirmed that Mysterio and Spidey will indeed be teaming up in the film. Spider-Man: Far From Home is scheduled for a July 2019 release.
