A brand new piece of concept art from Spider-Man: Far From Home shows off an unused early look for Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio.
Considered by many to be one of the best Marvel Cinematic Universe villains to date, Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio made his debut in Tom Holland’s second cinematic solo outing as Spider-Man. One of the most inspiring choices in the latest Spider-Man film was to have Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio essentially be a visual artist who used drones to project photo-realistic scenes of absolute chaos. The Mysterio we saw in the film had a very slick, gold-focused suit that was quite streamlined when compared with the renditions found in the Spider-Man comics. However, Jake Gyllenhaal’s look for Mysterio was radically different in the early days.
Ryan Meinerding, Marvel Studios’ Head of Visual Development, took to Instagram to share a brand new piece of early concept art for Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio for Spider-Man: Far From Home, which you can check out below. Be sure to swipe right to see the Spider-Man villain in all his glory.

This is one of the earliest designs I did for Mysterio for Far From Home. I was assuming he would be pretty ostentatious so I added some metal flake in the green, sort of like old school fairground rides or hot rods. I’m so glad we toned it down and the costume department did an amazing job bringing it to life. #mysterio
This early concept art for Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio is certainly not as slick and modern as the one seen in the Spider-Man film. This rendition for Mysterio is heavy on the character’s purple, a choice that wouldn’t reflect as well on the big-screen. This look for Jake Gyllenhaal is loud and accentuated, and it would really have taken away from the DIY manor that the character in the film described it to be. The much more subdued, charred gold look seen in the Spider-Man film perfectly compliments the bright suit that Peter Parker has throughout the film.
