Jake Gyllenhaal seems to confirm with his first post on Instagram that he is going to play Mysterio in the new Spider-Man movie. 

The actor seems to have created an account, especially for the video. Gyllenhaal reads a comic in which Spider-Man takes a stand against Mysterio. Then the actor suddenly shouts: “Wow, What the f …”. The video says: “I realize that I am not Spider-Man”. 

The Instagram account of the Spider-Man movies also responded to the message with an emoji that looks rather surprised.

The rumor that Gyllenhaal Mysterio was going to play in Spider-Man: Far From Home has been around for some time. Negotiations on the role already took place in May.

Spider-Man is played by Tom Holland, who also played the role in  Spider-Man: Homecoming,  the most recent  Avengers movie and  Captain America: Civil War.
