Spider-Man: Far From Home Marketing Hides Avengers 4 Spoilers

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

Jake Gyllenhaal confirms Mysterio role in Spider-Man: Far From Home

Jake Gyllenhaal has at last confirmed he's in Spider-Man: Far From Home, months after his casting was first reported.

In his first-ever Instagram post, the actor shared a video of himself reading a 1989 Amazing Spider-Man comic featuring Mysterio, and captioned it, "I just realized I'm not playing Spider-Man".

The film see Tom Holland reprise his role as Peter Parker/Spider-Man. It's now unclear which incarnation of Mysterio Gyllenhaal will be portraying.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige previously confirmed the 2019 sequel will take Peter Parker out of NY for a European adventure in London that will reflect the global aftermath of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4. To top it off, his Spider-Man: Far From Home co-star Zendaya posted an applause emoji while Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo wrote, "same" along with a sad face emoji.

Jon Watts is returning as director, while Chris McKenna and John Francis Daley have penned the script. Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal are among the producers. He's always been a particularly ridiculous villain - who can forget his iconic, screechy voice from the '90s animated Spider-Man series - so making him a real-world threat will be a challenge in and of itself. He is next set to appear in Edward Berger thriller Rio alongside Michelle Williams and Benedict Cumberbatch, and is in the pre-production phases of crime-thriller Finest Kind.
