Limited Edition Dr. Pepper bottles will feature an image of Mysterio, the villain of next year’s Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Mysterio is one of those Spider-Man villains that, as great as he was in the cartoons and certain comics, he visually just looks like a tough character to translate into reality. Well, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is continuing its crusade to make fantastic stories and characters seem completely natural to the realm of live-action. Mysterio is set to appear in Spider-Man: Far From Home and he’ll be played by none other than Nightcrawler star Jake Gyllenhaal.
Many have wondered what the villain’s costume will look like and thanks to some pictures snapped near the set of Spider-Man’s latest adventure, fans have gotten a sneak peek at his costume. It definitely looks pretty simillar to his comic book look, but the photos didn’t show him wearing his helmet, which may be the most iconic aspect of the character to begin with. But don’t worry Marvel fans, as a new piece of merchandise has confirmed that Mysterio will be donning his helmet. The image comes from the Candy Kings UK Instagram account and you can check it out below.
Sadly, the image doesn’t give fans a nice, clear look at Mysterio in costume but luckily, at some point next year it will be released for all to enjoy. There are still no details on the plot of Spider-Man: Far From Home but the images from the set have revealed plenty of globe-trotting and Spidey (Tom Holland) donning a costume more akin to the Superior Spider-Man suit from the comics. How Mysterio will fit into all this is still a big question but given that the film is set to be released in July, two months after Avengers 4, fans probably still have a long way to go before getting anything like a trailer for the film.
