With the release of the new Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer has come a lot of questions, with one of the largest being about Jake Gyllenhaal’s Quentin Beck/Mysterio who seemingly isn’t the villain. Although the trailer may be trying to mislead fans, it shows that Mysterio and Spider-Man will be teaming up for the film to take down the threat of the Elementals. Whilst speaking with Slash Film, Spidey himself Tom Holland spoke about the relationship between the 2 characters, referring to them like brothers.
It’s very much “big brother, little brother.” Nick Fury is the head teacher who is constantly telling me off. I don’t want to really be there. I want to go on holiday, and Mysterio is always the one sort of sticking up for me and patting me on the back and telling me I did a good job. Which is funny, there are really funny moments in the film where I feel like I haven’t done a good job, and Mysterio’s like, “Good job, kid!” [and I’m like] “Really?” So yeah, it’s fun. It’s been a really cool ride so far.
