Fans Caught Their First Glimpse Of Jake Gyllenhaal In 'Spider-Man: Far From Home'—And They Had Strong Feelings

This week, spider-fans got a sneak peak of Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio in Marvel's upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home.

That's right! Hollywood hot stuff Jake Gyllenhaal will play Mysterio, a crazed special-effects technician who wears a fishbowl helmet and hates Spider-Man.

Mysterio was unveiled after a couple unofficial snaps were leaked:


A little underwhelming, no? We're sure Mysterio will look way cooler after some post-production. Until then, it looks like the filmmakers will take advantage of Gyllenhaal's handsome face -- but we still haven't seen the villain's full costume featuring his famous helmet.

One helpful fan decided to whip up a quick Photoshop:


That's more like it! Fans reacted to seeing Mysterio for the first time:






Most seemed to agree that Mysterio definitely needs his helmet:



Looks like some footage leaked of Mysterio at a destroyed theme park:



It's unclear what the heck is happening in these clips, but still no helmet. What's going on?

THIS is why we need the helmet, Marvel:


Just look at those arm bracers! It's undeniably cool that Marvel's bringing Mysterio back for his first movie appearance, but they better not screw up his costume.

I'm guessing Mysterio will feature his classic fishbowl helmet early on, but it'll eventually be destroyed to humanize the character and showcase Gyllenhaal's acting chops.

Hopefully, we still get a couple scenes of Gyllenhaal trying to act inside the fishbowl.
