Promo Art Provides Best Look at Mysterio Yet

This year in Spider-Man: Far From Home we will get to see one of Spidey’s most famous villains on the big screen for the first time ever. Given how great Michael Keaton was as ‘Vulture’ in Spider-Man: Homecoming, Jake Gyllenhaal, has a lot of pressure to perform going into this role. Part of what makes Mysterio so beloved amongst Spider-Man fans is the character’s iconic look, with the fishbowl helmet in particular. Back in January, when the first trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home was released we got a good at Mysterio in action. But with the character flying through the air it’s kind of hard to examine all the little details on the suit. Today some promo art has leaked which I believe gives us our best look at Mysterio’s costume yet. With art you always get to see the finer details and what the creators were going for. And I was a fan of the suit at first anyway, but with this new look I love the suit even more. It’s slowly becoming one of my favourite suits in the MCU.

Take a look for yourself below:

I just love the way this suit looks! Not to mention I really liked the design of Vulture in Spider-Man: Homecoming too. I got to admit they’re doing a good job over there at Marvel with their villains so far. With the Fox and Disney deal completed I can’t help but think what Dr. Doom will look like in the MCU.

Let me know your thoughts on the suit down below.

Spider-Man: Far From Home is set to be released on 5 July, 2019

Spider-Man Far From Home Trailer: What We Learned

Last month it we saw the release of the trailer for the upcoming Avengers: Endgame movie. This month is was Spidey’s turn. Keep in mind we didn’t see Spider-Man at all in the Endgame trailer as he’s meant to be “dead”. With Far From Home set to pick up minutes after Endgame this trailer gave a great insight of the web-slingers life, post the snap.

Post Endgame

So, after Endgame and the snap that changed the universe, things look to be getting back to normal for Spider-Man. Aunt May seems to have accepted the fact that Peter’s Spider-Man. And while being an Avenger, it doesn’t stop him from dropping out of school. As told by the title of the movie, a lot of it going to be taking place outside of New York and all over Europe instead. While the character is so closely tied with New York, personally, I’m looking forward to seeing Spider-Man operates in a completely different environment.

New Suits

With this new environment comes new villains and of course, new suits. Starting off with the spidey suits in this movie. It looks like he’s going to be wearing three suits throughout this new adventure.

Stark suit

The first suit we get to see is the Stark suit, given to him by Tony Stark in Spider-Man: Homecoming. We see him wearing this suit at the beginning of the trailer when he’s giving a speech to the children. He’s also wearing it later in the film when we see him meet up with Nick Fury in London.

New suit (no name yet)

The second spidey suit we see Peter in has no name…as of now. This looks to be the main suit for the movie and while it looks similar to the Stark suit, there are subtle change. First of all the colours used are different. We can see this with the use of a darker blue on the lower part of the suit. The wrists are no longer red either, they too have this darker blue appearance. Also, if you’ve seen some of the set leaks from the movie the spider on the back of the suit is different too. How he gets this new suit will be interesting to see. Maybe it is the original Stark suit and he makes some adjustments to it?

Stealth suit

Now this is the suit that has got people scratching their heads the most. Mainly, because it reminds them of Spider-Man Noir. Regardless if it’s influenced by Spider-Man Noir or not it’s clear to see that this is more of a stealth suit. This actually raises questions about the Stark suit to me. The Stark suit was so advanced to the point where it had a ‘kill mode’. Wouldn’t that same suit also have a ‘stealth mode’ too? Maybe he loses the Stark suit somehow. Either way it’s not shown in the trailer but through set leaks this stealth suit does have the shield logo on it. My best guess would be that he gets this suit from Nick Fury. It makes sense too, since he’s still wearing the Stark suit when he first meets him in the trailer.

Elemental villains

As with every Spider-Man movie one of the most exciting aspect about it are the villains we get to see. Spider-Man has one of the best rogues’ gallery when it comes to comic book characters. If this trailer is anything to go by, it looks like we are getting multiple villains. The villains are going to based on the elementals. In the trailer we see Hydr-man (water), Magnum (earth) and Hellfire (flame). We only catch a quick glimpse of these villains. It’s possible they could be named differently in the movie. And it’s also likely they haven’t shown us all of them yet.

Mysterio

While the Elementals look to be the main villains of the film that all changes when Mysterio shows up in the trailer. The way the trailer is cut it looks like he saves Peter from Hydron. Here’s where things get tricky. Given Mysterio’s powers, are these Elementals real or just illusions? Emergency Awesomeness pointed out in his video how in the comics Mysterio once created illusions of villains and defeated them so he would look like the hero at the end of the day. That could well be the case here. Last month it was also confirmed Mysterio isn’t really the villain of the movie. In fact he’s meant to be a good guy. I can see him taking Peter under his wing, but ultimately still fighting him at the end of the movie.

These were just my quick thoughts on the trailer and the main things that stood out to me.

Release Dates For Spider-Man Spin-off movies revealed (Venom 2 & Morbius?)

After a number of attempts it may finally look like Sony’s Spider-Man universe is going to be taking off after all. Or, should I say Spider-Man-less universe as the web-slinger is yet to make an appearance. With Tom Holland’s Spider-Man flourishing in the MCU it was left up to Tom Hardy’s controversial Venom movie to take the reins. Now, regardless of what you think about Venom, the movie is a hit. The film has only been out for more than a month and it has already made up to $800m at the box office. Did the studio just strike lucky with Venom? Well, it looks like we’re going to find out in the next couple of years as Sony have revealed two release dates in 2020 for further spin-off movies.

The first of these dates is July 10, 2020. And going by what we know about the films in development so far. My best guess would be that Jared Leto’s Morbius movie is going to be released on this date. Of all the Sony movies in development this is actually the closest to going in production. It has been reported that the studio are looking to shoot the project early next year. Also, a couple of weeks ago Morbius himself (Jared Leto) posted a video on his Twitter teasing the potential look of the character.

The second date that has been added to the slate is October 2, 2020. This would have to be the Venom sequel. It’s a no brainer. The film was highly successful and the studio already laid the groundwork for the sequel with the post credit scene in Venom.

Let me know your thoughts on this news down below.

Are you looking forward to Sony’s spin-off universe?

Feel free to check out my review for Venom! 

 

 

Official: Venom Gets PG-13 Rating

Sony’s Venom movie is right around the corner as I write this. For months there has been speculation as to whether this movie would be Rated R or PG-13. From the start it felt like this film was going to be Rated R as it would look to fully embrace this dark, iconic villain. The tag-line of the movie even states “No more heroes”. However, the talk of Venom being Rated R started to change back in August with Variety’s report. They claimed the studio were likely going to go with a PG-13 rating. According to Variety, one of the main reasons for this PG-13 rating would be so they could eventually bring in Tom Holland’s Spider-Man into the universe. Taking this direction would make Sony’s Spider-Man universe more accessible to the general audience. And ultimately allowing them to make more money.

Well, today it has been pretty much confirmed that Venom will be PG-13. Sites such as AMC have started selling tickets already. Not only do they confirm the PG-13 rating of the movie. But, they have also revealed the runtime of Venom, which is 1hr and 52mins.

Screen Shot 2018-09-14 at 02.36.45

As someone who is looking forward to this movie, I have to admit I’m kind of disappointed with this decision. I just feel like if you’re going to make a Venom movie, then go all out. This is a character who eats people’s brains! Are they just going to cut the scene before he kills someone? At this moment it feels like Sony are too busy planning ahead. Let’s make sure that this Venom is a success first of all. Then you can worry about sequels. And how you want to incorporate Spider-Man into this universe.

My best hope at the moment is we’ll get an R Rated cut when the movie is released on Blu-ray.

Venom is set to be released next month on Oct.5

Tom Holland Spotted In Homecoming Suit On Set Of Spider-Man: Far From Home

Spider-Man: Far From Home has only been shooting for a couple of weeks in the UK. And while some set photos have already leaked, none have given away too much about the film. However, today Tom Holland may have just given us our first real piece of information about the film. Tom Holland in an Instagram video talked to fans from the set of Far From Home about the potential opportunity of joining him on set thanks to The Brothers Trust.

One of the most interesting things to point out in this video is how Tom Holland is in the suit from Spider-Man: Homecoming. Like with every comic book movie one of the main aspects of our favourite characters are their suits. In Avengers: Infinity War we saw Tom Holland’s Spider-Man receive an upgrade to the Iron-Spider suit thanks to Tony Stark. Seeing Tom Holland on the set of Spider-Man: Far From Home in the suit from Homecoming only raises more questions. Does he give Tony back the suit after the events of Infinity War and Avengers 4? Could they possibly be filming flashback scenes? Is Spider-Man: Far From Home set before the events of Infinity War? Or is Tom Holland trying to play a trick on us. Honestly, I wouldn’t be surprised given how much he has been blamed for revealing spoilers in the past.

With that being said regardless of how much he wears the original suit from Homecoming in this film I’m definitely expecting him to receive another upgrade by the end of the movie.

Venom: Trailer Review

As expected the new Venom trailer dropped today. I’m trying not to get carried away here but this is easily the best trailer they have dropped so far. Yesterday I said this film would either make or break the film in terms of people deciding if they’re actually going to watch it in October. And the early responses I’m see to the trailer have been positive for the most part. With each trailer the reception to the upcoming film continues to improve but that could just be me and the people I follow on Twitter. We’ll get our real answer in October with how many people actually go out and see the movie during its opening weekend.

Screen Shot 2018-07-31 at 16.11.26.png

The main thing I wanted from this trailer was to see more Venom. Now of course that seems obvious right? But given the character is so reliant on special effects I was worried about the CGI not being finished yet. Luckily I got exactly what I hoped for with this trailer as there was plenty of Venom in this trailer for me. Firstly his design is great! He looks like he just walked off the comic pages (yes I know he doesn’t have the white spider on his chest). As the trailers have been released you can see how they’re slowly updating his design. I love how Venom is getting more defined with the addition of the white veins on the Symbiote. The way Venom moves around is done well and of course it helps differentiate himself from Spider-Man. However, with all the praise I’ve given this trailer so far there is one major problem I have with it. And it seems like I may not be the only one who had this problem. At certain parts in the trailer I found it really hard to understand what Venom was saying! For example the scene at the end where Venom is about to eat that guy in the convenience store. I had to re-watch this scene multiple times just to understand what he was saying. Maybe Tom Hardy’s just having bad luck with these type of roles. Hopefully it doesn’t end up turning into a similar situation with what we saw in The Dark Knight Rises. Just to refresh your memory after early test screenings Christopher Nolan went back and made Tom Hardy re-record his lines because audiences were struggling to understand what he was saying. With the release of Venomonly around the corner this might have to be something the studio considers. But then again I did see some people saying they had no issue with his voice and they understood everything he said.

Screen Shot 2018-07-31 at 14.06.02

As for the plot of the movie director Ruben Fleischer has said the movie will be heavily influenced by the Leathal Protector storyline. The comic has a group of Symbiotes which consists of ScreamPhageRiotLasher and Agony. At this point we’ve only seen 3 Symbiotes (excluding Venom). I can’t see them including all of the Symbiotes from the Lethal Protector storyline because at some point it will just become overkill. We aren’t sure yet as to how Eddie comes in contact with the Symbiote. But it’s clear that Riz Ahmed’s character (Dr. Carlton Drake) has multiple Symbiotes in his possession. Does Eddie volunteer to be tested or does Dr. Carlton force him to? Clearly we can see from the trailer Dr. Carlton has been experimenting on other people with the Symbiote as he looks to create this new race of species. At one point in the film Dr. Carlton will experiment with a Symbiote on himself in hopes to takedown Eddie Brock. Dr. Carlton’s Symbiote is called Riot. For months it has been rumoured that Carnage will be the main villain of the movie. Now it’s clear they’re holding off with Carnage and are planning on brining him in later on. I wouldn’t be surprised if we catch our first glimpse of Carnage during the post credits scene.

Screen Shot 2018-07-31 at 14.33.50.png

I wouldn’t be worried about these trailers showing too much of the movie already. I believe the majority of what we have seen so far takes place within the first 45 minutes of the film. They haven’t shown us a lot of Eddie’s relationship with Anne Weying (played by Michelle Williams). And to be honest I’m really looking forward to spending time with Eddie Brock without the Symbiote. He has never came across as a super interesting character to me but the casting of Tom Hardy already looks to be a great choice with the way he is portraying Eddie. In particular I love the early dynamics of Eddie trying to fight off the Symbiote as it takes control over his actions. Surprisingly the trailer actually had a few comedic spots which I wasn’t expecting at all. It just shows that while this is going to be a dark film, it’ll also be a film where you can at least expect to have some fun.

Why ‘Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse’ Could Be One Of The Biggest Surprises Of The Year

Every Christmas there are no shortages of blockbuster films that grace the big screen and this Christmas is no different. The upcoming autumn season is already stacked when it comes to comic book movies as Venom and Aquaman are set to be released later in the year. If you know anything about me you’d know that as a DC fan I can’t wait for Aquaman. But I can’t lie there’s this little animated film by Sony which is also coming out this Christmas that currently has all of my attention and that is ‘Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse’. I was planning on writing about ‘Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse’ when the first teaser trailer was released but I could never get around to doing it. Now with the release of the first official trailer only a couple of days ago I thought this would be the perfect time to talk about it. I’ve already lost count of the amount of times I’ve watched it already. Hopefully I’m not getting ahead of myself here but I wanted to write about how ‘Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse’ could be one of the biggest surprises of the year.

The Animation Style

Screen Shot 2018-06-09 at 22.19.41

Look I’m not an animation expert here but this trailer looks amazing! Damn near every shot in the trailer is beautiful. You can literally pause the trailer at any moment and you’ll still be greeted with a screenshot full of beautiful colours that you just can’t take your eyes off. I know there are no shortages of animated films today but this just seems different. Spider-Verse both looks and feels different than your typical Pixar animated film. Not to say that Pixar hasn’t done a great job it’s just nice to have something different for once. One of my favourite shots from the trailer is when Miles is talking and his speech bubbles appear around the screen. It literally looks like a comic book page being brought to life, hopefully there are more shots like that in the film.

Sony

Screen Shot 2018-06-09 at 22.15.35

Sony gets a lot of criticism by fans with the way they have handled Spider-Man in the last couple of years. But to their credit they aren’t giving up on the property yet, especially with Venom coming out just a couple of months before this. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say Sony is taking this project in the right direction. I can’t wait to see the final product on the big screen. Sony deserves a lot of praise here especially if they knock it out the park with this one. I like how the cinematic version of the character can be loaned out to Marvel giving them the chance to work on their own universe. I love how they aren’t just sitting on their hands watching the success of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man in the MCU. This allows them to choose their own path and really just bring the comic books to life. It’s much easier for them to bring in characters such as Spider-Gwen for the first time. I can’t wait to see what other characters will also appear in this film.

Miles Morales

Screen Shot 2018-06-09 at 22.16.22

One of the biggest reasons why I’m looking forward to this movie is because the focus here is on a different Spider-Man. Miles Morales was a great choice for this project and a great starting point for the character to be introduced to the general audience who hasn’t read any of his comics. However given this movie is about the ‘Spider-Verse’ we will see other version of the character such as Spider-Gwen and Peter Parker. While it looks like Peter is teaching Miles the ropes I feel the main focus of the film will be centred on Miles and his family which I love. This is a breath a fresh air for the character in general. Don’t get me wrong Peter Parker will always be my favourite but I’m all for passing the torch to a new character.

That was my quick thoughts on ‘Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse’ and how it could be one of the biggest surprises of the year. It looks like I’m not the only one that’s excited about this film as the trailer has gained over 40 million views in the space of a couple days. Maybe I’m getting ahead of myself here but it does look like they have all the right ingredients to make a great Spider-Man movie.

‘Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse’ is set to be released December, 14

Revisiting Spider-Man: Homecoming

Check out my thoughts on Spider-Man: Homecoming after I watched it again recently via Revisiting Spider-Man: Homecoming

Revisiting Spider-Man: Homecoming

SMHC_post_master-960x540

I know what you’re thinking “Why is he reviewing a movie that came out last year?”. Well there’s a simple answer for that, when Spider-Man: Homecoming was released I didn’t have this blog and having recently watched it I felt like giving my thoughts on it. Better late than never right? This is the start of a new series where I revisit previous comic book movies and give my thoughts on them. The main reason why I’m doing is because I find that opinion on a film changes when I watch it again, especially when all the hype surrounding it dies down. Or sometimes my thoughts on the film don’t change at all. Homecoming is a movie I wanted to revisit mainly due to the high I came off when recently watching Avengers: Infinity War. I loved Spidey in Infinity War and when I thought about it I had only seen Homecoming once and I just thought it was a solid movie at best. Since I have a lot more free time I wanted to go back and see if my thoughts on it had changed. After all Spider-Man is one of my favourite comic book characters of all time. Instead of giving a full detailed review because you’ve probably read 100s of them by now I just wanted to give my thoughts on the film as a whole after revisiting it a year later.

No origin

maxresdefault (2)

When it comes to the movies we have already seen the origins of Spider-Man with how he was bitten by a radioactive spider and the death of Uncle Ben. I do remember the first Amazing Spider-Man movie getting criticised for retracing the steps of the first Raimi movie. Homecoming takes a shortcut because at this point we all know the origins of Spider-Man. I think this was a bold decision because at the end of the day this is still a reboot and skipping over the death of Uncle Ben in particular is a huge deal. There is an emotional tone that is left out in this film which I think could have been filled if they focused more on his death. I’m not saying you have to show us his death again for what would have been the third time but they could have made it feel more important rather than giving it one line in the movie where Peter is talking about what Aunt May has been through. By exploring Uncle Ben’s death it would have also allowed them to focus more on Peter’s relationship with Aunt May which I feel is lacking in the film.

I think the issue I ran into when watching this film the first time was not accepting that this was an entirely new Spider-Man. For too long I’ve held the Raimi films close to my heart because I grew up with them. This is a different Peter Parker in many ways but he still has the same elements from the comics. This isn’t a Peter Parker who feels responsible for the death of his uncle Ben. He’s worried about how best he can help his Aunt and how he can take Liz to the Homecoming dance. I’ve had my 5 movies with the same type of character/background. The way Peter and Spider-Man are handled in this movie is something new and I’m totally fine with that.

Peter’s arc

spiderman_161.jpg

The way the writers approached Peter’s arc in this film was interesting for a number of reasons. By skipping his actual origin the movie goes in reverse after the events of Captain America: Civil War where we were first introduced to him. Although we didn’t get a Spider-Man film prior to Civil War we know he was out there on the streets of New York in his homemade suit playing the friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man role. With Homecoming although he had been Spider-Man for some time he was still inexperienced in the role. You see this in scenes where he is chasing after the Shocker in his van, he ends up making a mess of the neighbourhood while losing track of the van in the process.

What I liked the most about Peter’s arc in this film is how he started the movie out on top. He had the upgraded suit and the help of his mentor Tony Stark but as the film goes on he pretty much loses everything. He doesn’t have the help of Happy, Tony and Karen to rely on when he battles the Vulture in the final act. Peter’s relationship with Tony in this film is something I also want to touch on since it has become somewhat a controversial aspect of the film. I’ll admit I wish Tony wasn’t in this film, I would have preferred Spider-Man to be working on his own for the majority of this movie. But I do think they’re building up to something special with their relationship. I would argue that Tony has taken the role of Uncle Ben in Peter’s life and what you saw in Avengers: Infinity War was just the start. I believe their relationship will be revisited in Avengers 4 possibly with the death of Tony Stark who passes the torch to Peter. The death of Tony Stark could be huge for this character. To see how this teenager would deal with the death of his mentor could provide us with some of the most compelling content we have ever seen when it comes to Spider-Man on the big screen.

Tom Holland

spider_man_homecoming_DF_28509_R2_r.0

Now I’m not going to get into the whole debate of who’s the best Spider-Man ever because it has taking place since Captain America: civil War and has restarted since Avengers: Infinity War, honestly it’s a boring conversation. I really like all three portrayals we have seen so far with Tom also making a great Spider-Man. Without contradicting the whole point I just made the main issues I had with the previous iterations of the character is there wasn’t the perfect balance between Peter Parker and Spider-Man. With Tom Holland’s portrayal I feel like he finally strikes the perfect balance with the character overall. You believe he’s a kid who’s in high school mainly because of Tom’s performance, even though he’s 21 years old he embodies the role perfectly. This characteristic also translates easily into Spider-Man. Tom brings his innocence, joyful and comedic touch to the character. Also when given the right material Tom actually pulls of some great emotional performances in this role too. The first that comes to mind is of course the famous rubble scene which is taken straight from the comics and it works on big screen mainly due to Tom’s performance in the scene. The “Come on Spider-Man” line gets me every time I think about it. I do believe in the future movies that if they want the character’s arc to take a more emotional route Tom Holland will be able to pull if off.

Vulture

Spider-Man-Homecoming-Vulture-mask1

I forgot how great Michael Keaton was as the Vulture in this movie. Every time he’s on screen he just steals the scene. You can tell this is someone who is seasoned in this industry, he makes it look so easy. His performance overall is one that I think should be remembered for a long time when it comes to the main villains of the MCU. The scene in particular that stands out to me is when he’s threatening Peter in the car. The build up to that scene and the way Keaton delivers his lines are great. The simple line of “Good ol’ Spider-Man” on paper doesn’t sound like a great line but Keaton’s delivery makes it a great line. Aside from Keaton’s great performance the main reason why I really like the Vulture in this film is because he was relatable. Yes, relatable for me is a key element that makes a great comic book villain. I don’t know about you but I’m so over the main villain who just wants to takeover the world so they summon a faceless army and shoot a beam into the sky for the final act. The MCU has been guilty of this formula but with the likes of Thanos, Killmonger, Hela and now Vulture they are starting to deviate away from it.

I like how Tooms was out to just help his daughter which links back to Peter because he saved her life. He had multiple opportunities to kill Peter but didn’t because that wasn’t his main goal. In fact apart from one of his henchmen who he kills by accident, he doesn’t kill anyone else in the movie. Another scene that stood out to me is just after Peter escapes from the rubble and he runs in the Vulture at his hideout. I love Adrian Tooms’ speech here about being looked down upon by the likes of the Tony Stark’s of the world. I love the line he says “They don’t care about us” and due to how he was treated at the start of the movie he’s right. It could even apply to Spider-Man with the way Tony Stark treated him. So both the hero and the villain have something in common which helps make him a better villain in my opinion. Overall the Vulture was a great main villain in this movie and in the MCU overall. At first I was skeptical when they chose the Vulture as the main villain but it was a great starting point for this Spider-Man mainly because of Keaton’s performance. I also like how they kept him alive in the end as they’re slowly building towards the formation of the Sinister Six in a future film. One last thing I would like to add on the Vulture is how much I love the character’s costume design. Sometimes when you see characters in comic books you think there’s no way this would work on the big screen. Vulture was one of those for me and when it came to the look of the character the costume designers knocked it out of the park.

Overall Spider-Man: Homecoming was a film I enjoyed a lot more the second time around. I like this new Spider-Man and the potential it has in the future. I think Tom Holland was a great choice along with Michael Keaton’s Vulture as the main villain of the first film. While I still have issues with the film such as the visual effects and the final battle it didn’t stop me from liking the film even more the second time around. This has become one of my favourite Spider-Man movies ever and I can’t wait for the sequel which is coming out next year.

Jake Gyllenhaal In Talks To Play Mysterio In Spider-Man: Homecoming Sequel

Mysterio-Spider-Man-Marvel-Comics-h409_1200_616_81_s

For months it seemed like whenever Jake Gyellenhaal’s name was brought he was constantly linked with replacing Ben Affleck for the role of Batman. Now it seems Gyellenhaal is finally joining the superhero universe but not to play the Caped Crusader but for a more villainous role as Mysterio in the upcoming Spider-Man Homecoming sequel. It was reported just a couple of minutes ago by The HollyWood Reporter that he’s talks for the role with nothing confirmed yet. With the sequel looking to start production sometime this summer I do believe this will be confirmed sooner rather than later. They must have been talking for sometime and who knows the deal could have already been done, you never know with Hollywood. Even if the deal breaks down somehow what it does confirm is the studio are using Mysterio as the main villain for the film. We have already seen the Vulture be introduced with the first movie and now with Mysterio they have already made up two of the members of the iconic Sinister Six. It does look like they’re eventually building up to the Sinister Six as that was Sony’s initial plan with the Garfield movies but we most likely won’t seen the Sinister Six on the big screen until the third of fourth Spider-Man movie.

Here’s just a brief history between Spider-Man and Mysterio in the comics who also goes by the name Quentin Beck:

Debuting in The Amazing Spider-Man #13, Mysterio is Quentin Beck, a special effects wizard and stunt man working for a major Hollywood studio with dreams of making a name for himself in the film industry. However, he came to see his career in special effects as a dead-end job. His attempts to become an actor were poorly received, but he realized that his expertise in illusions could make him an effective supervillain.

In his first battle with Spider-Man, after he frames Spider-Man for robbing the Midtown Museum, Mysterio obstructs the hero’s spider-sense with gas and dissolves Spider-Man’s webbing with a chemical abrasive. However Spider-Man tricks Mysterio into revealing he robbed the museum, then Spider-Man revealed he had captured it on tape. Mysterio was then jailed, blaming Spider-Man for his ruined career. Mysterio later joins the Sinister Six in an attempt at revenge on Spider-Man, and battles him using robots of the X-Men. After this Spider-Man gets a card that enables him to go on to battle Sandman.

Mysterio later creates the alias of world-renowned psychiatrist Dr. Ludwig Rinehart, using technology and hypnosis in an attempt to make Spider-Man lose his mind, and nearly convincing him to unmask, though ironically Spider-Man was helped by J. Jonah Jameson suddenly bursting into the house. Spider-Man then unmasked Mysterio.

What this news also means is that the rumours surrounding Ben Affleck being replaced by Jake Gyellenhaal will also stop, thanfully. So this should actually be good news to anyone who wants to see Ben Affleck continue playing the role of the Batman.

The sequel to Spider-Man Homecoming is set to be released next year on July 5, 2019
