“Oh, man. Wow. I mean, like, I think that — you know, I mean, you know,” an evasive Gyllenhaal began in response to a fan’s query requested at a Talks at Google panel for Broadway’s Sea Wall/A Life. When Gyllenhaal’s stage co-star Tom Sturridge joked Gyllenhaal could be struck down by a dart to stop his answering the query, the Marvel star playfully collapsed.
“Oh, I lost my mic, sorry. Oh whoops, I lost my mic! I can’t answer your question,” Gyllenhaal stated. “No, I mean, I think that, I think… he’s dead, man. Right? Right? Right?”
Gyllenhaal’s grasp of phantasm Mysterio gave the impression to be killed after being caught in the crossfire of killer drones concentrating on the meddling Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who thwarted the unhinged Quentin Beck’s ploy to be seen because the world’s biggest hero following the loss of life of Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) in Avengers: Endgame.
Using Tony Stark’s glasses, housing the substitute intelligence often called E.D.I.T.H., a suspicious Spider-Man instructed the supercomputer to scan for lively holograms and was happy when E.D.I.T.H. reported none had been current — apparently confirming Beck’s loss of life.
Beck pulled a last trick on Spider-Man when a doctored video from Mysterio’s final stand in London was launched to TheDailyBugle.internet, utilized by pundit J. Jonah Jameson (J.Ok. Simmons) to out Peter Parker as Spider-Man on nationwide tv.
When requested by ComicBook.com if Mysterio survived, producer Amy Pascal stated ominously, “You don’t know.” Director Jon Watts agreed there was wiggle room for a return, admitting in a separate interview, “It’s Mysterio, so who knows? He definitely seemed dead.”
Producer Eric Carroll beforehand recommended Mysterio may seem in future movies throughout a go to to the Far From Home set, the place Carroll stated the filmmakers envisioned a dynamic just like friends-turned-foes Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Karl Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) in Doctor Strange.
“We needed to seek out our ‘in’ and just like what we did with Mordo in Doctor Strange,” Carroll stated. “We wanted to give them time to have relationships so when and if we get to do something different with Mysterio, it really feels like a betrayal… and we’re hopefully setting the stage for something really spectacular and that feels really Spider-Man, which is, again, if we get to do something else with this character, then they’ve already got this really personal relationship.”
In the Marvel Comics, Mysterio is a long-standing member of the Sinister Six, an ever-changing assemblage of Spider-Man’s deadliest foes.
Spider-Man film rights holder Sony Pictures — who’ve since had a very public break up from Disney-owned Marvel Studios that might pull Holland’s Spider-Man from the Marvel Cinematic Universe if not resolved — have lengthy had plans for the villain group on the large display, together with a Sinister Six film underneath connected writer-director Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods, Bad Times on the El Royale).
“I’m just waiting for Drew to be ready to direct it,” Pascal advised Vanity Fair in December. “I would do anything with Drew Goddard. I’m just waiting for him to tell me he wants to.”
Spider-Man: Homecoming and Far From Home screenwriters Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers are now scripting Spider-Man 3.
“It’s really exciting, the ideas we have for how we can expand the Spider-Man world and bring new characters into it, and crossover with other people, it’s really exciting,” Holland stated throughout an August conference look. “And it’s only going to get bigger and better from here, which is great.”
