Is Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio a Good Guy in Spiderman Far From Home ?

After watching the trailer of “Spiderman Far from home” everybody was perplexed and confused by looking at the character of Mysterio. In the trailer, he seems to be fighting with the villains but he himself used to play the characters of a villain.

So could Mysterio, who is played by Jake Gyllenhaal be a good guy? Mysterio’s costumes in the trailer also show him as a superhero and his looks were a combo of Thor and iron man since he had those big cape and shoulder clasp like Thor and he also had armor plating like iron man, his powers look similar as Dr. Stranger’s.

However, all we have seen in the Spiderman Far from home trailer could be a ploy of Mysterio himself as he isn’t Master of Illusions for no Good Reason. All we have seen in the trailer could be a trick that Mysterio is trying to play on us and people by making all these monsters up using his advanced special effects technique and then getting there just in time to save everyone so that he could be hailed as a hero.

This is not out of the realm of Possibilities as he had tried this in the comic. We can’t be sure of this because this will not be the first time Marvel has turned Villian into a hero as we have seen this being done to Vulture, who at the end of Spiderman Homecoming doesn’t hate him and even tries to protect his identity. The second time Marvel has done this is with Nebula as she is now one of the core characters of Guardian of The Galaxies and is also helping the Avengers to defeat Thanos in the upcoming Avengers Endgame.

Looking at the comics, he is always a bad guy and he had never presented himself as a hero. But after looking at the trailer it seems he is on the same side as that of the spiderman, fighting those elemental creatures made from rocks, water, and fire.

But critics say that he is up to something and he has been suspected more in line with his comic book counterpart. Mysterio is actually Quentin Beck, a former special effects specialists in the movie who uses his mastery of illusion to commit crimes.


Mysterio uses his knowledge of chemistry, Robotics and hypnotism to deceive his enemies, his powers of illusions seems to be supernatural. Even his costume is equipped with devices and weapons like lasers, an acid that can dissolve spiderman’s webs and his goldfish bowl helmet help him on the navigation of debilitating gases which he uses.

Many peoples feel that Mysterio himself is creating the elemental monsters and showing up to defeat them, establishing himself as a superhero to cover his criminal activities. Well, these mysteries will have to remain as mysteries until the movie will be released. This summer seems that Mysterio is going to create a separate fanbase.
