Gyllenhaal seems to prove with his first post on Instagram that he will play Mysterio in the new Spider-Man movie.
The actor seems to have created an account, especially for the video. Gyllenhaal reads a comic in which Spider-Man takes a stand against Mysterio. Then the actor suddenly shouts: “Wow, What the f …”. The video says: “I realise that I am not Spider-Man”.
The Instagram account of the Spider-Man movies also reacted to the message with an emoji that looks slightly surprised.
The rumour that Gyllenhaal Mysterio was going to play in Spider-Man: Far From Home has been around for some time. Negotiations on the role already took place in May.
Spider-Man is played by Tom Holland, who also played a role in Spider-Man: Homecoming, the most recent Avengers movie and Captain America: Civil War.
