Jake Gyllenhaal’s 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' villain revealed


Besides the fact that Gyllenhaal will now be treating his devoted fans to photos of his everyday life, the post seems to confirm something that's been the subject of heated speculation for months - his reported role in the upcoming follow-up to Marvel's "Spider-Man: Homecoming".

Actor Jake Gyllenhaal has been roped in to star in the upcoming sequel of popular superhero film "Spider-Man: Homecoming".According to reports, it's now unknown what role he would be playing, but people connected to the project say he would likely be the new villain, joining Michael Keaton, who will return to reprise his role of Vulture. A trailer is expected to arrive before Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse hits cinemas on December 14 - and perhaps even as early as this Saturday - and in that context, it makes sense for Gyllenhaal to start teasing his role before the trailer unveils just what he looks like in the movie. To seal the deal, the post includes the caption "I just realized I'm not playing Spider-Man".

Jake announced the news after joining Instagram! To top it off, his Spider-Man: Far From Home co-star Zendaya posted an applause emoji while Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo wrote, "same" along with a sad face emoji.

Jon Watts is returning as director, while Chris McKenna and John Francis Daley have penned the script. Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal are among the producers. The character was introduced in The Amazing Spider-Man #13 back in June 1964.

Sony and Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel is due to be released on 5 July, 2019.
