'Spider-Man: Homecoming 2': Jake Gyllenhaal in negotiations to play Mysterio

Daveena Kataria Thursday 24 May 2018

Tom Holland is currently preparing for the next 'Spider-Man' film that's set to be the superhero's second independent film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The upcoming film,

dubbed 'Spider-Man: Homecoming 2', could release as early as next year, despite that, however, we've still very little detail about what could go down.

Every hero needs a nemesis, and, according to THR, Jake Gyllenhaal could be just the guy to fill that vacancy. It's rumoured that the actor is in talks over portraying Mysterio, Spider-Man's enemy. In the comics, Mysterio is a special effects worker who gives up his day job in order to defeat Peter Parker.

 Jake Gyllenhaal

The Sun reports that Gyllenhaal has already signed on as the antagonist of the film, after having competed with Ryan Gosling for the part. Gosling was originally in the running but had to pull out due to scheduling issues. "Jake is a suitable alternative with experience of playing villainous characters", a source told the newspaper. We'll have to wait and see whether the rumours are true.

Sebastian Stan takes a page out of Peter Parker's book

During a panel at the recent Wizard World convention, actor, Sebastian Stan was asked how his character, Bucky Barnes, would end the sentence "Steve..." taken from 'Avengers: Infinity War'. Stan didn't really hesitate in responding with a take on Tom Holland's, "Mr. Stark, I don't feel so good", replying that the sentence would've ended, "Steve, I don't feel so good". Needless to say, Stan's response had the entire audience and panel in stitches.
