Jake Gyllenhaal set to swing into Spider-Man as villain Mysterio

Jake Gyllenhaal Confirms 'Spider-Man' Role in First Instagram Post (Video)

It's a amusing way to reveal his role - made funnier by the caption: 'I just realised I'm not playing Spider-Man, ' which is a nice nod to the time Gyllenhaal nearly replaced Tobey Maguire in Spider-Man 2 (Maguire injured his back before the shoot, Gyllenhaal trained to step into the role, but Maguire recovered in time).

The "Donnie Darko" star just joined Instagram and this was his first post.

In his first ever post, he can be seen reading "The Amazing Spider-Man" comic book.

Regardless of what we're calling it, the costume is now on display as part of this weekend's CCXP convention in Brazil, and thanks to this up-close and official look at the outfit, the fan speculation has started anew. The title of this issue in particular is 'The Return of the Man Called Mysterio!' and Jake suddenly realises his role in the next Sony/Marvel collaboration.

Marine rescued after 2 military aircraft crash off coast of Japan
Five marines were reportedly aboard the KC-130 Hercules and 2 flying the F/A-18 fighter jet, which was being refuelled. The military did not release the circumstances of the crash, saying the accident was still under investigation.

Jake Gyllenhaal finally confirmed what was reported months ago: he's playing the villain Mysterio in Spider-Man: Far From Home! Photos from the set snapped backed in September showed Gyllenhaal dressed in a very elaborate looking get-up (sadly sans fishbowl), and rumours that the iconic villain would be the one squaring up against Spidey in the upcoming sequel have been swirling for a while now.

In the comics, Mysterio is the alternate name of Quentin Beck, a movie stuntman and special-effects wizard who uses his skills in creating illusions to commit crimes. His appearance in Spider-Man: Far From Home marks the character's live-action debut.

Tom Holland starred as the Marvel hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming and recently appeared in Avengers: Infinity War.
