Jake Gyllenhaal To Be Mysterio In The Spider-Man Sequel

After almost a year of speculation and suspicion that Jake Gyllenhaal would be next up to wear the cape and cowl of the Dark Knight after Ben Affleck, news comes from the MCU that the former Prince Of Persia has instead decided on making his superhero movie debut in a giant fishbowl helmet. That’s right, Gyllenhaal is all but a lock to take on the role of Spider-Man villain, Mysterio, in next year’s sequel to last year’s “Homecoming.” At one point, nearly 15 years ago, when Tobey Maguire’s negotiations to come back for the original Spider-Man 2 were in limbo, Gyllenhaal almost became Spider-Man. Now he will play the main villain in the 3rd version of a Spider-Man sequel.

The original Mysterio was Quentin Beck, a failed Hollywood stuntman and effects wizard who used his skills to start a life of crime. Often his tricks were capable of throwing off Peter’s abilities, like his “Spidey-sense,” which will possibly play in the sequel, considering we just started seeing it in Infinity War. These threads usually lead somewhere. There have been a few other incantations of Mysterio over the years, but if there’s a Sinister Six team-up going on, he’s usually a part of it. Considering that Michael Keaton (who played Vulture, often a Sinister Six member, in “Homecoming”) is returning, along with already getting an early incantation of both the Shocker, and the Scorpion, we could be witnessing the second in a march towards a similar run, here, as that would give us 4 of 6. Sony has long wanted a Sinister Six movie, and with Disney’s (and Feige’s) help, putting something together that’s cohesive, is far more likely. Of course, we also have to make sure Spider-Man comes back from the damage inflicted by Thanos in Infinity War (*wink* *wink*.)

While I’m more than excited to see Gyllenhaal in the MCU, and as a Spider-Man villain, no less, it’s an interesting choice, considering all the buzz about him being the favorite to take over as the next Bruce Wayne. Again, I’m at a loss with the difficulty Warner and DC have had at landing an actor that really WANTS to be Batman for an extended period. More importantly, does this mean that the rumors about Ben Affleck expressing an interest to continue as the Caped Crusader are true? What do you think? Hit us up on our socials, or here, and let us know!

*The as yet unnamed Spider-Man sequel is scheduled for June 5, 2019

Lots Of Cable In The New Deadpool Trailer!

cable

Today we get a new Deadpool 2 trailer, and this one is heavily focused on Cable. I am again worried that the focus is heavily on everything but quality of story in this sequel, which I think plagued the first film. Also, I worry that Cable is going to be mishandled in the film, but he sure looks cool, even if this Cable ends up being quite different than the one in the comics. Deadpool is set to drop on May 18th, but we want to hear your thoughts on the trailer!
