“I just realized I’m not playing Spider-Man.”

Jake Gyllenhaal has officially confirmed that he will be playing Mysterio in the upcoming film Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Revealed through Gyllenhaal’s Instagram (as his first post at that), the heavily-rumored casting has proven to be true, as the video shows Gyllenhaal reading Amazing Spider-Man #311: The Return of the Man Called Mysterio! with another Mysterio-centric issue framed behind him. To seal the deal, the post includes the caption “I just realized I’m not playing Spider-Man.” It’s currently unclear which incarnation of Mysterio Gyllenhaal will be portraying.

Reports have been circulating about Gyllenhaal portraying Mysterio since May, though this is the first official confirmation of those reports. Rumors at the time suggested Michael Keaton could also make a return as The Vulture alongside Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio. For more on the illusive Mysterio, check out our explanation piece on the character.

Spider-Man: Far From Home is set to receive its first trailer on Saturday at the Brazil Comic Con during Sony’s panel and will likely include Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio. Spider-Man: Far From Home is set to be released on July 5, 2019.
