Spiderman Far from home is the next MCU movie releasing on 5th July in India. While much of the film has been kept under wraps by Marvel and Sony. The villain of the story wasn’t revealed until a fan pointed out that actor Jake Gyllenhaal who was casted in a role in movie wore armour similar to the one wore by Mysterio in the comics. Mysterio was a spiderman’s arch enemy and was the creator of the villain group ‘Sinister Six’ who had the sole goal to destroy Spiderman. But in the trailer of Spiderman Far from home, Mysterio is shown as a hero.
There were so much air of confusion among the fans about who was the villain for the movie, fans looked out for video footages to deduce who was the villains. The footages were obviously for the shoot of the Elementals that we now know as per the trailer. But the videos sparked the rumours of Spiderman actually having to confront the ‘Sinister Six’. These rumours were shunted when the trailer was released and it was clear that Elementals, not Mysterio were the villains. But does that mean Mysterio is a hero in the MCU?
From the trailer we know that the Thanos’ snap and the Avengers time travel disrupted the space-time continuum and it has led to opening of the multiverse in MCU. Mysterio claims to be from an alternate reality who came to search for the Elementals who destroyed his home world. He teams up with Nick Fury who brings in Spiderman to fight against the Elementals. But will Spiderman Far from home Mysterio actually be a hero?
But in the comics, we have seen Mysterio setting up Spiderman for his various tricks before revealing his true intentions. Similarly, there is a possibility that Mysterio searching for Elementals is just an act and he is truly the villain of the movie all along.
While this opens up a whole new avenue of possibilities for Spiderman Far from home, we will have to wait and see if this is the case when the movie releases.
