I wasn't sure whether to post this in the Avengers thread or to just make a new one for Spider-Man... Hopefully this is ok! It's being reported by multiple sources that Jake Gyllenhaal is in talks (but not 100% cast yet) to play the villain, Mysterio, in the upcoming sequel (release date July 5th, 2019). ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Sequel: Jake Gyllenhaal Eyes Villain Role – Variety I think this would be awesome casting and I hope it works out! Gyllenhaal is an incredible actor and if you're unsure if he could play a good villain, just watch him in the film Nightcrawler. He's excellent in it.
