Published on:

They say that if an actor or actress isn’t part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe yet, it won’t be long before they do. Well, many great performers have passed through the UCM, and have seen their careers change forever. Now, Jake Gyllenhaal confesses how bringing Mysterio to life changed the way he approaches his work.

The case of Robert Downey Jr. before and after Marvel Studios, an actor with behavioral problems, alcoholism and addictions, is very famous. But once he played Tony Stark, better known as Iron Man for the Disney universe, things were totally different in his life.

Giving life to Mysterio was a turning point for Jake Gyllenhaal: “It was something so cathartic to be able to throw away all that seriousness and really become the actor that I think I’ve always wanted to be in many ways”, which quickly paid off in the acting career.

Also, ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ represented a change in his mindset when he was on set: “I think I realized, ‘Hey, you know, acting is really fun. You know? Enjoy it! And the people here are fantastic! Enjoy them and enjoy the life around you because life goes by super fast.”

It’s true that Jake Gyllenhaal is no stranger to Hollywood blockbusters, however, with ‘Fa From Home’, the actor jumped into the very high production value titles, and which resulted in him joining ‘Ambulance’, the most recent film by director Michael Bay, known for adaptations of ‘Transformers’, and other action movies.

Sadly, we won’t be seeing more of Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the future, but given the villain’s deceptive nature, it may be that he returns as an illusion, or as an enemy of the Multiverse. Everything is a possibility, but we will have to wait to see it.
