Marvel fans can get their best look yet at Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) from Spider-Man: Far From Home thanks to a new piece of promo art.
Spider-Man: Far From Home hits theaters this July, marking the end of Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Tom Holland’s Peter Parker first debuted in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War before headlining his own solo movie in 2017, Spider-Man: Homecoming. Tom Holland’s wall-crawling hero last appeared in 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War, in which he fell victim to Thanos’ (Josh Brolin) snap. When Spidey returns this year, he’ll be facing a new foe, Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio.
Mysterio’s most iconic attribute from the comics and cartoons is his giant helmet. Jake Gyllenhaal will be portraying the nefarious illusionist in Spider-Man: Far From Home and thanks to a new piece of promo art, fans can get an incredible new look at the Mysterio costume that Jake Gyllenhaal will be donning in the film. Check out the awesome artwork in the Instagram post below.
Jake Gyllenhaal’s portrayal of Mysterio will be the first time that the villain has been brought to the big screen. In Spider-Man: Homecoming, Tom Holland’s Peter Parker clashed with the Vulture. The villain was played by Batman actor Michael Keaton and also marked the first time that particular villain had been featured on the big screen. Jake Gyllenhaal was rumored to play the role of Spider-Man years ago but that never came to fruition.
The actor has also been a fan favorite choice to take over the role of Batman in the DC Extended Universe. Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio has been featured in the trailers for Spider-Man: Far From Home but his true place in the story has yet to be fully revealed just yet.

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’
Ben Affleck is officially out as Batman and it's a pretty sad day.
Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he's no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.
Three years have quickly sped by and we're officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves' The Batman and now everyone's attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that's around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.
In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.
Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.
Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he's one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes' arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he'd love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.
I've said this before and I'll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I've always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he's done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.
Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio's best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c'mon, the guy's look just screams Bruce Wayne.
Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn't deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He's charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he's young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.
Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
