Everything You Need to Know About Mysterio, the Villain Jake Gyllenhaal's Playing in 'Spiderman: Far From Home'

By Mustafa Gatollari

One of the most exciting parts about the debut of a new superhero movie is finding out who the next "main villain" is going to be. And for Spiderman fans, when they heard that Far From Home would be featuring Mysterio, they were very, very excited.

That excitement was only amplified when it was revealed that Jake Gyllenhaal would be playing the fish-bowl rocking magician, as he isn't exactly the obvious choice for a bad guy.

And that's partly because he's downright ridiculous looking and partly because only those who watched that cheesy Fox 5 Spiderman cartoon and read the comics know who he is. When the latest trailer for Far From Home debuted, however, even those who weren't die-hard Mysterio fans (is there such a thing?) were amped for his appearance in the film.

It also left them with a lot of questions, like:

Who is Mysterio Fighting?

In the trailer we can see Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio two-piecing a giant water monster with some green-energy-magic-blasts from his hands, upstaging Peter Parker in the process and getting him drenched with water. While we know that villains like Hydro Man exist in the Marvel universe, it's hard to imagine that they'd put him in film. Why? Because there's giant rock and fire monsters in the trailer as well.
