UPI News Service, 12/06/2018
Jake Gyllenhaal joined Instagram and used his first post on the social media site to poke fun at his upcoming villainous role in Marvel's Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Gyllenhaal is set to portray classic Spider-Man foe Mysterio in the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming. The character is a special effects expert who uses his skills to commit crimes by creating illusions.
The actor posted on his new Instagram a video of himself reading a Spider-Man comic that features Mysterio. Gyllenhaal, after putting the comic book down, looks stunned before he almost drops an f-bomb.
"I just realized I'm not playing Spider-Man," Gyllenhaal captioned the comedic clip.
