AceShowbiz - The possible first look at Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio in "Spider-Man: Far From Home" has surfaced online as production is currently underway. Leaked set photos and video showed the actor shooting for the upcoming Marvel movie in Liberec, Czech Republic for the first time.
In the snapshots and video taken during the filming over the weekend, the "Brokeback Mountain" star wore a burgundy cape and what looks like metal gauntlet. He stood opposite another actor who appeared to wear a Spider-Man costume amid the destruction they caused, before several black cars arrived.

It's unclear, though, if it's Tom Holland who was under the Spidey suit, as the actor along with Zendaya Coleman and their co-star Jacob Batalon was recently spotted in London, U.K., where the movie is also filmed.

It hasn't been confirmed either if Gyllenhaal's character is indeed Mysterio, but judging from his costume, it does look like he's portraying the master of illusion. He, however, didn't wear the character's trademark fishbowl-esque helmet, which will likely be added in post-production.
"Spider-Man: Far From Home" will take Peter Parker overseas as he travels abroad during summer vacation. Marisa Tomei, Michael Keaton and Tony Revolori also return for the sequel, which is still directed by Jon Watts with the script provided by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers. J.B. Smoove and Numan Acar are added to the cast in new roles.
Meanwhile, previously unveiled set photos confirmed Samuel L. Jackson and Cobie Smulders would be reprising their roles as Nick Fury and Maria Hill respectively. They were joined by Jon Favreau, who was dressed as Tony Stark's friend and bodyguard Happy Hogan, during the filming in London in early September.
As the timeline of the "Spider-Man: Homecoming" sequel has not been revealed, there has been speculation that the upcoming pic will be set after the events in the upcoming "Avengers 4". Thus, the set pictures might have revealed that Fury, Hill and Hogan somehow survived after they were wiped out from existence in "Avengers: Infinity War".
"Spider-Man: Far From Home" is set for a July 5, 2019 release in the United States.
