Spider-Man: Far From Home delivered an amazing, reimagined version of Mysterio and by the time all was said and done, he had revealed the web-slinger’s secret identity to the world. While it seemed like Quentin Beck had died, he is the Master of Illusion, and a return somewhere down the line really seems inevitable.
Now come rumors that Sony Pictures wants to bring Jake Gyllenhaal back for a solo movie revolving around Mysterio, an idea they had before the actor was even cast in the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel.
No details have been revealed beyond that, but with characters like Venom, Kraven the Hunter, and Morbius (whose movie will feature an appearance from The Vulture) all getting their own solo outings, it really does feel like Sony could be building to an eventual Sinister Six team-up movie. That’s another project the studio has been sitting on for a number of years now.
