The details for Spider-Man: Far From Home has been kept under wraps for the most part. Outside of knowing that Tom Hollands Spider-Man will return from the dead somehow and that Jake Gyllenhaal would suit up as the villain Mysterio.
But according to stars Holland and Gyllenhaal, Mysterio will not be the same character from the comics. The version that will make his on the big screen will be a hero.
Holland let out some of the plot details with Mysterio.
“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 revealed that Mysterio is recruited by Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury because he knows more about the Elementals than anyone else.
“Well there are these threats to the world, the Elemental creatures, and Mysterio is someone who knows about 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.”
Spider-Man: Far From Home also stars Zendaya, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Jacob Batalon.
