Spider-Man: Far From Home star Jake Gyllenhaal dodged a question regarding a possible Mysterio appearance in a Sinister Six film.

Before Marvel Studios and Sony reached the initial deal to co-produce Spider-Man films that would introduce the wall-crawler to the MCU, the latter studio was developing a Sinister Six feature as part of their plans for the webhead’s movie franchise. Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard was attached to write and direct the Sinister Six film, but the project was shelved after the Marvel Studios and Sony deal resulted in a reboot of the Spider-Man film series.

However, Sinister Six villain Mysterio made his long-awaited live-action feature film debut in Spider-Man: Far From Home with Jake Gyllenhaal in the role. While Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio was seemingly killed during the climax of Spider-Man: Far From Home, the inherently deceptive nature of the character has some fans suspecting he could return in a sequel or perhaps a Sinister Six film. During a Talks at Google panel for Broadway’s Sea Wall/A Life, Jake Gyllenhaal was asked about a possible Mysterio appearance in Sinister Six and the Spider-Man: Far From Home star artfully dodged the question before reminding the audience that the villain is dead:

“Oh, man. Wow. I mean, like, I think that — you know, I mean, you know. […] Oh, I lost my mic, sorry. Oh whoops, I lost my mic! I can’t answer your question. No, I mean, I think that, I think… he’s dead, man. Right? Right? Right?”
