The sequel for 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming and 2019’s Spider-Man: Far From Home is reportedly in the works, and it is intended to tell the story that has never done in a film. Tom Holland will reprise his titular role as the friendly neighborhood superhero, but will Mysterio return?
Jake Gyllenhall’s Mysterio, aka Quentin Beck, debuted in 2019’s Spider-Man: Far From Home as illusions specialist who holds a grudge against Iron Man and seemingly wants to take his place. Mysterio reportedly dies after sustaining wounds from misfiring drones at the final act in the film. But, now, a new fan theory claims that Mysterio isn’t dead after all.
Quentin Beck is a master illusionist, and he has lots of cards to play to manipulate or overpower his foes. The E.D.I.T.H. plays an integral part in the whole movie, and the same A.I. glasses confirmed the death of Beck. The glass/E.D.I.T.H., was in possession of Beck in most of the second half of the movie. Beck can easily modify the glass with the help of his associates, and the commands Peter received after Beck gets wounded might be fake.
One of Beck’s associates is alive and ran away after downloading much of E.D.I.T.H.’s data. In the mid-credits, J. Jonah Jameson broadcasts the video made by Mysterio, in which he frames Spiderman for his [fake] death and reveals the identity of Spiderman. So, considering all these, the commands from E.D.I.T.H. are not genuine, and Beck is somewhere else plotting another trick to beat Spiderman.
The filmmakers haven’t confirmed the death of Mysterio as well. Mysterio might possibly reprise his role in the third Spiderman film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The upcoming Spiderman movie is scheduled to be released on November 5, 2021, but the filming has been halted due to the ongoing health crisis brought by coronavirus pandemic.
