After confirming his role as Mysterio in the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home film, Jake Gyllenhaal has just revealed more information regarding his character.

Although many fans are suspecting Mysterio to be the villain of the film, Gyllenhaal states otherwise. Earlier this month, Far From Home cast members Tom Holland, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Jacob Batalon appeared together at Brazil’s Comic-Con CCXP. During the panel, Batalon shared that the film’s villains are the Elementals and that both Spider-Man and Mysterio are working together in the film.

Batalon stated:

“It’s basically just about the kids going on a European vacation. We go to London, we go to Prague, we go everywhere. It’s just a really fun thing. There’s a lot of dynamics that go on. A lot of relationship stuff. A lot of cool funny stuff. A lot of fun stunt stuff. The main focus is for him not to be Spider-Man per se, but he gets dragged into it. But you know he reluctantly saves the world again with Mysterio. Mysterio’s a good guy in this, they’re both teaming up to kill the game, to defeat these Elemental monsters.”

Gyllenhaal then went on to add that Mysterio is recruited by Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury:

“Well there are these threats to the world, the Elemental creatures, and Mysterio is someone who knows abut them and who wants to make sure that the world is safe from them, and Nick Fury asks him to come on and help because he’s the only one who really understands them in a way. And he teams up with the Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man and unfortunately he has to make him become more than just a Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man.”
