Jake Gyllenhaal Confirms 'Spider-Man' Role in First Instagram Post (Video)

The Oscar nominee has given in and joined Instagram, and if his first post is any indication, we expect a ton of adorableness over the coming months.

And the excitement does not end there.

Prior to what is thought to be the first Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer dropping on Saturday, Jake Gyllenhaal officially joins Instagram and teases none other than Mysterio.

News broke back in May that Gyllenhaal had been tapped to play villain Mysterio in the new Spider-Man film, but both Marvel and the actor himself have been quiet on that - until now.

It's a amusing way to reveal his role - made funnier by the caption: 'I just realised I'm not playing Spider-Man, ' which is a nice nod to the time Gyllenhaal nearly replaced Tobey Maguire in Spider-Man 2 (Maguire injured his back before the shoot, Gyllenhaal trained to step into the role, but Maguire recovered in time).

This marks the first time that anyone involved with Far From Home has confirmed Mysterio's inclusion in the film.

Mysterio is a special effects expert who commits crimes and fights Spider-Man using elaborate illusions, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The film see Tom Holland reprise his role as Peter Parker/Spider-Man.

Spider-Man: Far From Home will focus on Peter Parker (Tom Halland) and his pals as they vacation in Europe over the summer.

Jon Watts is returning as director, while Chris McKenna and John Francis Daley have penned the script. Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal are among the producers.

Sony and Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel is due to be released on 5 July, 2019.
