Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio

One complaint we’ve often heard from actors is that their costumes can be a bit uncomfortable for extended periods of time. However, this won’t change Jake Gyllenhaal’s screentime in costume as Mysterio in ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ as he insisted that he wear it more than was originally proposed!

According to producer Eric Carroll, the suit wasn’t meant to be featured nearly as much as it is in the film, but Gyllenhaal dug what the suit ended up looking like and felt it was so central to the character that he should be wearing it at every opportunity that they could fit it into the script:

“We were just assuming – since we did end up building a fully practical costume – that our actor wouldn’t want to spend time in it, and then we were like, to make sure we get the caliber actor we want for this, we made it clear, “we won’t make you wear this stuff when you don’t have to.” So on and so forth. So, for example, this is a scene — this is a briefing scene. We had said, “you can just look cool. You can just look like a cool mercenary man. You can have your t-shirt on, leather jacket and jeans.” And he was like, “Can I be in the costume? I really feel the character, I get it.” So, not only is this costume practical, but he wears it everywhere it makes sense to wear it. So we think this looks amazing. We’re super excited about bringing him to the screen.”

Honestly, I’m thrilled at this piece of news. Not only does Gyllenhaal look amazing as Mysterio in the trailers but it feels like a fitting embodiment of the villain from the comics.
