After the events that took place in Avengers: Infinity War, it’s still hard to imagine Marvel films featuring the stars in Avengers to continue to come out. Spider-Man is one of them, as the second film was already announced before Infinity War even came out.
As Marvel prepares for Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 on July 5th, 2019, our source revealed that Jake Gyllenhaal is in talks to become Mysterio for the next villain. Mysterio has been a classic enemy to Spider-Man in the comics and cartoons, and maybe Jake Gyllenhaal can be the one to make Mysterio an even bigger badass.
The only thing that I find weird is how they are just NOW trying to find the next villain in the film. Maybe a year is just enough time to get everything done before next year. We will keep you updated if Jake ends up securing the role.
