Rumors were also swirling up regarding Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield joining the cast along with some other Spider-Man alum actors- Kristen Dunst’s Mary Jane Watson, Emma Stone’s Gwen Stacy, Willaim Dafoe’s Green Goblin, Thomas Haden Church’s Sandman and Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio.
Mysterio in Spider-Man 3
Jake Gyllenhaal’s appearance as Mysterio in Spider-Man: Far From Home, was loved by the fans. Though Mysterio was seen to die in the last film, Sony Pictures would certainly make a plan to bring that character back. However, it is yet not decided if this will be through flashbacks, or the character would be brought back to life in the movie.
Previously, writer Erik Sommers said,
“Mysterio is just an iconic villain, and we discussed various villains, but we kept coming back to Mysterio. He really seemed like the next logical choice, but the challenge was how to update the Mysterio from the source material, the comics, into someone that we would see in the MCU.So, it just came down to a lot of conversations with the creative team about how we would update Mysterio, how we would make someone who in the comics is a stuntman, special effects guy with strings on his shoes, into someone that we would see coming up against Spider-Man in an MCU movie.”
