****THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME****
Guise. Mysterio’s Guise.
If you ask me, Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio is one of the best villains we’ve seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Certainly not above the Purple Titan Thanos, but definitely at the top of the list. One unique aspect of the character is he starts the film out as a hero and an ally.
Most comic book readers knew in advance that Mysterio wasn’t on the so called up-and-up, but fans who are stricly movie watchers and of course the casual theater visitor wasn’t aware of Mysterio’s comic book history. Gyllenhaal recenlyspoke with The Hollywood Reporter and talked about keeping up the hero bluff during press events. You can check out what he had to say below
“(Laughs.) Yes, I did. I knew that there would be a meta quality throughout that process. But, it wasn’t difficult because I genuinely adore Tom Holland, and we love spending time with each other. For a majority of the movie, we are really on the same side. It could be argued, at least from where I stand, that we were on the same side anyway, even by the end of the movie. I kinda liked it; maybe that’s what made the press tour so entertaining for me. It was still a certain type of performance.”

Many fans have stated they think that Mysterio is still alive and while I am not fully convinced at the moment, I do think it’s very possible and, if that turned out to be true, wouldn’t surprise me at all. And honestly, I wouldn’t mind another big screen appearance my the villain. I’ve always been a fan of non-superpowered villains who can cause problems for those with super abilities.
