We’re anxiously awaiting Spider-Man: Far From Home to hit theaters later this summer, but apparently, we already have to wary of spoilers.
This time, the spoilers come from a description on one of the action figures based on the upcoming Marvel film.
Warning: Major Spoilers Ahead
On the back of the action figure for Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal), the description confirms that the character will be the same as his comic book counterpart as he is presented as a superhero from another dimension.
“Mysterio is a master of illusion and a sworn enemy of Spider-Man,” the description reads, confirming the comics.

Mysterio has been passing himself off as a hero since 1964’s Amazing Spider-Man #13, so this isn’t exactly a total shock. In that comic, he presented himself as a hero that was enhanced by a special effects artist.
“Mysterio enters the comic as a hero,” director Jon Watts said to press. “So, I always took it right back to the source material and what made that character exciting initially. But in terms of how we ended up with Mysterio in the first place, I mean, I wanted to put a character on screen that we hadn’t seen before.”
“Of the big, iconic villains, Mysterio was the one who jumped to the top. Because of who he is, what he may-or-may-not be able to do, it’s really opened up a lot of possibilities for the kind of story we can tell with him.”
The film recently debuted a new clip featuring Mysterio. In it, the character explains the concept of a multiverse to Peter Parker.
The clip reveals that the MCU is set on Earth-616, a version of real-life Earth, and is the main universe. It apparently contradicts Marvel’s claims that the MCU is set on Earth-199999.

We also recently just got our second Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer that had some serious spoilers. Luckily, Holland gives a warning of that at the beginning.
“If you haven’t seen Avengers: Endgame yet, stop watching because there’s some serious spoilers coming up,” Holland said. “But if you have seen Avengers: Endgame, enjoy the trailer.”
For fear of giving anything away, you can watch the trailer at your own risk below.

More Spider-Man news
Since the drop of the latest trailer, Holland has come out to give us even more information about the movie.
In an interview with comicbook.com, he said there’s one scene people aren’t going to like.
“There’s a scene in this film where audiences will feel like they’ve been punched in the face,” he said. “Even filming it, I remember walking out and then watching it again on the monitors and asking Jon, ‘Are you sure that’s okay?’ And he’s like, ‘No, it’s not. People are going to hate this scene.’ But it really, phew, God, it’s pretty crazy and it’s very similar in the way that it’s very tense and it whips the rug from underneath your feet. It’s pretty awesome.”
It’s unclear if it will be an emotional moment in the film, or just a major twist that changes anything. We’ll just have to wait until the film drops to see what he’s talking about.
