Jake Gyllenhaal Joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe

While the old era of the MCU is coming to an end a new era is arising and with it comes new characters and new villains to be explored. It was recently announced that the famed actor, Jake Gyllenhaal will be joining the MCU family as the new villain set to appear in Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 next summer. He will play the villainous role of Mysterio which, after reading up on the character, excites me a lot and perfectly matches with the story at hand considering Mysterio, in the comics, teamed up with The Tinkerer who has already made his debut in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

He also, in the comics, pretended to be Spider-Man and framed him for robberies and other horrible deeds like that. That could prove to be a tough obstacle for Peter Parker and definitely sounds like a greater challenge than he faced last time against The Vulture. I can’t wait to see the MCU version of this character and what he’ll mean to the story moving forward.

Does this news excite you as well and what other Spider-Man villains would you like to make an appearance in the MCU? I’d love to hear your opinions in the comments below.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.
