Villain Overview

I created Mysterio to give the world someone to believe in. I control the truth... Mysterio is the truth!
~ Mysterio while confronting Spider-Man, and one of his most famous quotes.
You'll see, Peter. People... they need to believe. And nowadays... they'll believe anything.
~ Mysterio's infamous last words to Spider-Man, foreshadowing the latter's unmasking.
Now this is an Avengers-level threat.
~ One of Mysterio's most famous quotes.

Quentin Beck, better known as Mysterio, is a major antagonist in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, serving as an unseen character in the 2016 film Captain America: Civil War, the main antagonist of the 2019 film Spider-Man: Far From Home and the posthumous overarching antagonist of its 2021 sequel Spider-Man: No Way Home.

He is a former Stark Industries illusions specialist who wants to become the world's biggest superhero in place of Iron Man by feigning attacks from inter-dimensional beings called the Elementals. Originally pretending to ally himself with S.H.I.E.L.D., Mysterio becomes the archenemy of Spider-Man after the Elementals are proven fake. A spiteful and emotionally unstable man, Mysterio ends up becoming the first real personal threat to Peter as his actions eventually started a chain of events that have arguably ruined the boy's life.

He was portrayed by Jake Gyllenhaal, who also played Louis Bloom in Nightcrawler, Johnny Wilcox in Okja, Anthony Claire in Enemy, and Danny Sharp in Ambulance.

Biography

Meeting Spider-Man

Beck first appeared when "Nick Fury" and "Maria Hill" encountered Sandman, which he later destroys using his powers. Once Peter Parker and his friends get attacked by Hydro-Man in Venice, Beck saves Peter from its wrath. The two fight together and Beck destroys the Elemental, appearing as a hero to Italy. Later that night, Nick Fury brings Spider-Man to his hideout, where Spider-Man meets Beck. He unintentionally gave him his hero's name Mysterio (something he was called by his classmates), a name which he liked and happily took up.

Beck meeting Parker.

Beck tells Spider-Man that he came from an Earth of a different dimension that was destroyed by the Elementals, and that they’re on the original Earth. He reveals that there are four of them and their elements: Earth, Water, Fire and Air. Fury suggested that Spider-Man team up with Mysterio to fight the last Elemental Molten Man, but Spider-Man refuses as he is too busy hanging with his classmates on their field trip.

Eventually, Spider-Man decides to leave his class's trip and help Mysterio fight Molten Man at the Prague Carnival. The two battle the Elemental for a long time, attacking it with their webs, lasers, and mists, along with surrounding rocks and water. However, they are unsuccessful in stopping the Elemental, as it absorbed enough metal to make itself unstoppable. Mysterio summons all his power and punches the giant in its chest, making it explode and dissipate forever.

True Colors

Beck's true colors are revealed.

After the defeat of Molten Man, Spider-Man and Mysterio head over to a bar, where Spider-Man confides in his relationship trouble and declares Mysterio worthy to be an Avenger. He then hands over his glasses (containing an intelligence system called E.D.I.T.H. built by Stark), saying that Mysterio should be worthy of being a great superhero just like Stark. However, after Spider-Man leaves, the bar is revealed to be an illusion, and Mysterio happily declared success, and cheered for his team, (composed of former Stark Industries employees, mostly William Ginter Riva, Victoria Snow, Guterman, Janice Lincoln and Doug).

It turns out that Beck himself was a former Stark Industries employee who created a projection prototype that Stark would later rename as B.A.R.F., and that Beck felt jealous and furious because of this event. Beck also commented that Stark fired him for his unstable behavior and that he actually plans to usurp Stark as the world's greatest hero, since the latter sacrificed himself to destroy Thanos and the Black Order. It also turns out that the Elementals are projection drones (built by Riva) as part of Mysterio's true plot to cement himself as a hero to the world and that he tricked Spider-Man into handing over E.D.I.T.H. to further facilitate his plans.

As Peter prepares to reveal his feelings for MJ, the two happen upon a piece of detritus and end up activating it, proving that Mysterio didn't notice that he accidentally bumped into one of his Drones and it lost a projector, which reveals that the Elementals are cybernetic beings and not magical monsters. They then realize that Beck is a fraud who was using them to make himself look like a hero to the public.

Mysterio taunting Spider-Man with his holograms.

Around the same time, Mysterio realized the missing projector was orchestral in a rehearsal to his next battle, planning an Avengers-level threat. Knowing that his plan will be compromised, Mysterio later uses E.D.I.T.H. to find out that Spider-Man and MJ knew his true colors. He also prompts Riva that once he had to kill Spider-Man, Riva will get the blame. Once he gets to Berlin, Mysterio shoots 'Nick Fury' with one of his drones, then Spider-Man then encounters Mysterio, who fights against and torments him by making him go through separate illusions, such as Mysterio in full armor dropping MJ from the top of the Eiffel Tower, a dozen of mirrored Spider-Men attacking, a zombie Iron Man, a spider whose eyes form a marching army of Mysterio, and also trapping Spider-Man inside his helmet as a snow globe version of New York City including the Avengers Tower.

He gets shot by Fury, who then asks Peter who did he tell about his identity. Peter tells him that he only told Ned and MJ, while stating Ned might have told Betty. Fury turns out to be a disguised Beck, who leads Peter in front of a speeding train. Believing to have defeated Spider-Man and killed him, has he plans to kill his friends next so they can’t expose him as a fraud. But in reality Spider-Man isn’t dead as he was only knocked out for a short time as he calls Happy and plans an attack to defeat Beck, destroy his drone army and save his friends and everyone.

Final Battle and Death

Beck and his team unleash his largest illusion yet, The Elemental Fusion in London, which is supposed to kill Michelle and the rest of Peter's classmates. He then comes to the rescue and jumps into the Elemental Fusion's mouth and uses the Peter-Tingle to destroy each of the Drones projecting the inside of the Elemental. Mysterio with anger orders the Drones to attack Spider-Man.

Mysterio's death.

Spider-Man then went past and destroyed some of the Drones, standing in his way upon being fed up with Beck, which he then confronts the latter to give him the E.D.I.T.H. glasses. Mysterio then taunts Peter which he then creates an illusion where Peter has to get through, similar to the one which Beck used to trick him before, with this time with the help of using his Spider-Sense again. Beck then finally loses his temper and gets scared and very desperate to defeat Spider-Man, as he foolishly orders his other drones to attack when E.D.I.T.H tried to warn him he’ll get shot, and ends up getting shot in the stomach. After overcoming the illusions Peter then sees Beck, lying there with supposedly redeeming himself then chooses to gives Peter E.D.I.T.H again but it turns out to be yet another illusion, as his own real self, still wearing the glasses then attempted to shoot Peter as a last effort into finally killing the latter but was quickly stopped due to Peter's tingle, outsmarting Beck and telling him he can’t trick him anymore as he finally takes E.D.I.T.H back from him which Beck’s face then collapses in defeat with suffering a shot from one of his drones through misfire from earlier.

Peter disables all the drones, saving his friends and everyone in London, putting an end to Mysterio’s fraud and public endangerment. Then Spider-Man asks Mysterio why he attacked London, to which Mysterio replied he wanted to be believed as the next superhero. As Peter watches as Mysterio succumbs to his wounds due to his reckless attempt to kill Spider-Man. Spider-Man asked E.D.I.T.H. to confirm there were no active holograms in use within their vicinity, to ensure whether or not Beck was tricking him with another illusion. it then confirmed there are none, assuring Spider-Man that Mysterio isn't enacting any further illusions. As Mysterio is truly now dead.

Framing Spider-Man

Mysterio exposing Spider-Man's identity.

However, it turns out that Mysterio, knowing that his plan could fail and that he could potentially die, had his crew edit the footage of him and Peter fighting the Elementals to frame Peter as the culprit behind the attacks and his death while revealing his true identity in revenge for foiling his plans. The footage is then given to and displayed by J. Jonah Jameson, exposing Peter's secret identity to the entire world and branding him as a menace to the world, much to Peter's distraught, as now the authorities are going to try to arrest him for crimes he never committed, and all his loved ones are in danger from all those criminals he trapped as Spider-Man over the years while Mysterio goes down in history as one of the greatest superheroes who ever lived while fooling everyone into thinking Spider-Man is the enemy-all of this from beyond the grave.

Legacy

Despite being dead, Beck practically managed to fool the world into believing that Spider-Man was an enemy to society and making them turn against the boy, which his death then led a change of the public's belief on his mortal enemy and sparked a huge controversy against the wall crawler, Peter then turned himself in and was arrested along with his loved ones on the charge of Mysterio's death, and for them to be interrogated for their part in it. Surrounding the Household as much people watched in disagreement, Matt Murdock then came and helped ease Peter and which he was accused of, which caused a random individual who then threw a brick in anger at the attorney while shouting ''MYSTERIO FOREVER'' but was quickly caught, surprising Peter.

He then sought out later on to Doctor Strange so he could make everyone forget Spider-Man's true identity. However, the spell was accidentally botched, allowing five supervillains from different alternate worlds to then be dropped including: the Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Sandman, the Lizard, Electro and, unknowingly, Venom/Eddie Brock, who were all dispatched randomly to Earth-19999. The spell also brought two older versions of Spider-Man from those universes. Peter, with the aid of his alternate counterparts, fought against the villains and managed to cure them so they could redeem themselves, but this wasn't before the Goblin murdered Peter's Aunt May, leaving Peter as the sole remaining member of his family.

When the intruders were transported back to their respective worlds, Doctor Strange would then cast another spell, which this time worked as intended, making the world forget Spider-Man's true identity to prevent multiversal threats from fracturing the MCU, although with a huge cost; the world would also forget that Peter Parker existed, including his loved ones and Strange himself. While Mysterio's plan was ultimately foiled, most of the public now see that Mysterio is wrong about Spider-Man, but some are still foolish to revere him as a hero and it brought irreparable consequences and utterly ruined Peter's life, stripping him from his relatives, friends and allies, so arguably, as horrible as it sounds, Mysterio seemily got the last laugh at Spider-Man, but Spider-Man didn't care and got the real last laugh at Mysterio, knowing that Spider-Man already won, most people know by now Mysterio is wrong about him, and that he's happy knowing he's keeping his friends safe from the second spell was cast, severely reducing his public influence as now that nobody remembers that Peter Parker existed in the first place.

To make matters worse, a tiny piece of the Venom symbiote remained in the MCU instead of being transported back into the universe it belongs in when Venom and Eddie Brock were sent back to their universe. Likewise, for unknown reasons, the Vulture was somehow transported from Earth-199999 to Venom's universe, where he is released due to having no criminal history there and meets Michael Morbius with the intent of forming a team to get back at Spider-Man, implying that Peter will likely face new multiversal dangers, all thanks to the damage he unleashed due to Mysterio's actions.

Personality

More casualties, more coverage. I gotta cut through the static. London is a beautiful city, and it will suffer, but they can rebuild. I mean, if I'm gonna be the next Iron Man, I've gotta save the world from an Avengers-level threat. But, when its new savior descends, all those casualties will be forgotten.
~ Mysterio disregarding millions of lives in London out of a pure ego, showing how callous he really is.

During his days as an employee at Stark Industries, Quentin Beck had always shown a glorious desire for using his skills of technology to work with Tony Stark. He designed and invented the B.A.R.F. (Binary Augmented Retro-Framing) prototype, but after Stark noticed his callous and unstable nature, Beck was fired, leaving him embittered and vowing revenge. Beck later witnessed his former employer die in the Battle of Earth (in Avengers: Endgame), seizing the advantage to use his skills to create drones that project the Elementals and an advanced suit of armor with a helmet to shield his identity. He decided to use the Elementals to cause massive destruction across the continent of Europe and defeat them himself to be seen as a great hero in the eyes of the wide public. He did all of this despite everything Tony did to save the Earth. A first of many signs of Beck being nothing more than a petty psychopath. He also alleges that everyone laughed when Tony presented at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, when in reality no one laughed when Tony said the invention's name and that he had yet to come up with a better one, proving his self-serving nature.

This plan would succeed, with people such as Flash Thompson giving him praise. Brad Davis states that Beck is similar to Thor and Iron Man together, implying how powerful he truly is without knowing the issue would require the attention of Spider-Man, 'Nick Fury' and 'Maria Hill'. Beck manipulated them by claiming that he is from another Earth, as well as the Elementals, presenting himself as an expert on them and that they are entities from his dimension, all as a move to advance his plan.

While being portrayed as a superhero, he had a selfless and caring nature, appearing to risk his life to protect innocents and allies. Beck would also become somewhat of a father figure to Spider-Man showing sympathy for his desires for a normal life and advising Peter to think about what he wants, rather than following other people's expectations. He even encouraged Peter to show off his intellect.

However, beneath his superhero guise lies an egotistical, dark, ruthless, petty, destructive and manipulative psychopath who would stop at nothing to get what he wants. He does not hesitate to threaten the lives of his crew when their missteps exposed the truth about Mysterio to Peter Parker whom Beck was supposedly fond of. Beck also cares less about the casualties caused by his performances than the attention he would receive for them, expressing giddy excitement at staging an "Avengers-level threat", nonchalantly watching Spider-Man get hit by a bullet train, taunting him with illusions of Tony, and plotting to kill MJ, Ned Leeds and Betty Brant for knowing his true intentions.

Despite his depravity and willingness to threaten his crew, he did appear to show some genuine support and appreciation with his team, as seen when he individually complimented each member for the work they did and their contributions to the overall plan, although this could simply be interpreted as him acting as he cares or that he just cares for them as long they are useful to his plans. Additionally, when he scolded his crew for their mistakes, he angrily stated that Peter Parker's blood would be on their hands, possibly demonstrating some small semblance of regret and anger for having to kill Peter, further supported by the fact that he told Peter for what it was worth, he was sorry. However, this did not stop him from sadistically taunting and attempting to murder the teenager later on. Even if he did truly care about Peter, he discarded any sentiment he initially had by framing him for murder and revealing his identity, nor did he hesitate to kill him once he became too much of a threat.

Even though he is arrogant, ruthless, and callous in the face of death, he is very methodical and cautious and does not overlook the smallest of mistakes, allowing him to continue his plans longer. An example of this is when one of the cameras from the drones was taken off during the fake battle; instead of brushing it off as Riva did, Mysterio immediately saw this as a major threat to him and took quick actions to find the missing projector and take care of anyone who discovered it. Another example was when the drones were breaking formation during the Elemental Fusion attack on London, Mysterio observed it, saw it was wrong, and found out it was Peter instead of ignoring it and allowing the hero to do more damage. Indeed, his only real mistake was underestimating Peter's superhuman powers, as he thought that merely getting hit by a train would kill him as well as not expecting Peter's Spider-Sense to adapt to his illusions.

Beck accentuated his psychopathy in the illusions he conjured during his first fight with Peter; one such illusion featured him throwing MJ from the Eiffel Tower, manipulating Peter's feelings for her and fears for her safety. He created dark, terrifying and foggy illusions that terrified Peter, trapped him inside an illusion of a snow globe of New York with the Avengers Tower and causing an illusion of Mysterio's giant arm to fall on him. He even blamed Peter for Tony's death with the purpose of hurting him for no reason other than spite.

He grew much more desperate and bloodthirsty in his second confrontation with Spider-Man, unleashing all of his destructiveness to ensure his plan's success; but his lack of emotional stability brought him down, as he turned against E.D.I.T.H.'s advice, only to be riddled with his own drones' gunfire. In spite of this, Beck was partially successful in his goals, as he balanced his still-heroic image to expose Spider-Man's true identity and frame him for the destruction he never caused, even though he may not have lived to see it.

Powers and Abilities

He's like Iron Man and Thor rolled into one.
~ Brad Davis about Mysterio.

Quentin Beck does not possess any special abilities, he instead uses a combination of highly advanced hologram technology with stolen Stark Industries drones to give the illusion that he has superpowers. Whenever "Mysterio" is seen battling an Elemental, it is a hologram remotely controlled by the real Beck while the drones produce the collateral damage that Mysterio's "attacks" should cause. This alongside his intellect makes him a huge threat to both humans, and superheroes. That said, those with superior senses can overcome his illusions as shown during his final fight with Spider-Man.

Powers

Beck uses hologram drones to make himself look like a superhero.

  • Hologram Projection: Using special equipment and motion capture suit, Beck can project a "Mysterio" hologram that participates in the fake battles against the "Elementals". Whenever Mysterio is required to physically interact with someone, Beck can overlay the hologram with himself while wearing a costume to give the impression that he was there the whole time. The physical "Mysterio" costume that Beck wears does not have the "fishbowl" helmet that the hologram Mysterio features, as the costume itself is nothing but a prop.
  • Smoke Generation: The Mysterio hologram can produce a large amount of green smoke, which gives the illusion of Mysterio having superpowers while also making it easier for the real Beck to replace the hologram when necessary. Furthermore, anyone who isn't enhanced or has experience with holograms will have a difficult time knowing whose the real Beck.
  • Hallucination Induction: Beck can use his hologram projecting devices to induce hallucinations into a target, where reality appears to be distorted while the victim sees horrific visions that confuse them.

Abilities

  • High-Level Intellect: Quentin Beck was an intelligent genius, holding intelligence on the level that could even be compared to that of Tony Stark, having been a principal developer of Stark Industries technology, with him not only creating the B.A.R.F technology, which, despite Beck's instability, Stark was impressed with enough to keep to use but later on successfully creating technology so advanced that he was able to fool all, even superhumans, along with also masterminding his entire plan that came very close to succeeding and in a way did as he became a martyr by exposing Spider-Man to the public and blaming him for his death. That said, it is unknown if he ordered his men to frame Peter, or they did it themselves. Despite all this, Spider-Man is still a lot more smarter than Beck is, and Beck is extremely arrogant, making him foolish enough to only care about himself and think he could defeat Spider-Man, even thought he was easily defeated twice when he wasn’t which led to his downfall and death.
    • Master Scientist and Engineer: Quentin was an exceptional scientist and engineer, particularly specializing in the field of holographic technologies, having been one of Stark's chief technology makers before he was fired, making the revolutionary B.A.R.F with many innovative potentials, which Stark deemed advanced enough to keep to use for therapeutic purposes to great effect, and later on developing illusionary drones capable of projecting such advanced city-wide illusions as to fool even extraterrestrial beings.
    • Master Tactician: Beck's adaptability allows him to adjust the spin of the story on the fly. This is most evident when Beck made Parker believe Fury saved him, only to effortlessly coerce information about who else could know of Beck's deception. Even as Spider-Man revealed his illusions, Beck turned the story of his reported death into martyrdom by having William Ginter Riva edit the London footage to make it seem as though Parker commanded the drone attack and killed Beck, just to turn Spider-Man into a public enemy.

~ Mysterio revealing his true colors after tricking Spider-Man into giving him E.D.I.T.H.
Okay, toasts! Gimme that, Doug! To the man who brought us all together, our former boss, Tony Stark. The jester king, literally wrapped in wealth and technology that he was unfit to wield. Like the holographic system I designed, a revolutionary breakthrough with limitless applications, that Tony turned into a self-therapy machine and renamed... "B.A.R.F."! He renamed my life's work "B.A.R.F."! I told him it was a mistake, that my technology could change the world, and then... he fired me. Said I was... unstable. To Tony!
~ Mysterio toasting and venting his hatred for Tony Stark.
Next, to William! The integration of my illusion tech with your weaponized drones was brilliant! Powerful illusions, real damage, worked like a charm! And it's just the beginning. To Guterman! The story you created, of a soldier from another Earth named Quentin fighting space monsters in Europe, is totally ridiculous, and apparently exactly the kind of thing people will believe right now! I mean, everybody bought it! To Victoria! Staging electromagnetic pulses at each attack site so Fury's own satellites would confirm our lies, inspired idea! To Janice!

Unless you're flying around with a cape or shooting lasers from your hands, no one. Will even. Listen. Well... I've got a cape, and lasers. With our technology, and with E.D.I.T.H., Mysterio will be the greatest! Hero! On Earth! And everyone will listen! Not to a... boozy man-child! Not... to a hormonal teenager! To me, and to my very wealthy crew! To us. To Mysterio! To Peter Parker! Poor kid. Let’s get to work.
~ Mysterio's monologue while speaking to his crew.
More casualties, more coverage. I gotta cut through the static. London is a beautiful city, and it will suffer, but they can rebuild.

~ Mysterio disregarding the lives of civilians who will be killed in the next Elemental attack.
That projector is evidence, it's going to tell people what we're doing and how we're doing it. I am trying to fool seven billion people here, including Nick Fury, who happens to be the most paranoid and most dangerous person on the planet, and if he catches on before I've killed him, then he will put a bullet in my head! And nobody wants a bullet in their head, right? Right!?
~ Mysterio threatens his crew.
You know, William, one day, after I've had to kill Peter Parker because of this, I hope you remember that his blood is on your hands!
~ Mysterio yells at Riva for his mistake.
Wow, Peter. Wow. I thought we were close. Fury always had to die, but not you. I tried to help you walk away. But now you're making me do this. You told me you were just a kid. You told me you wanted to run after that girl.
~ Mysterio talking to Spider-Man in his illusion.
I don't think you know what's real, Peter. You need to wake up! I mean, look at yourself... You are just a scared little kid in a sweatsuit!
~ Mysterio to Spider-Man.
If you were good enough... Maybe Tony would still be alive. Deep down, you know I'm right.
~ Mysterio tormenting Spider-Man over the death of Tony Stark / Iron Man.
You are so dumb. I mean, smart as a whip, just a... sucker. And now all your friends have to die. It's easy to fool people when they're already fooling themselves. But for what it's worth, Peter... I really am sorry.
~ Mysterio disguise as Nick fury after tricking Spider-Man again.
Now that's an Avengers-level threat.
~ Mysterio referred to the Elemental Fusion.

~ Mysterio's villainous breakdown.
Spider-Man: Beck! You lied to me. I trusted you.
Mysterio: I know. That's the most... disappointing part. You're a good person, Peter... such a weakness. Stark was right... you do deserve them.
~ Mysterio pretends to return E.D.I.T.H. in a final attempt to trick and kill Spider-Man.
I managed to send the Elemental back into the dimensional rift but I don't think I'm gonna make it off this bridge alive. Spider-Man attacked me for some reason. He has an army of weaponized drones, Stark technology. He's saying he's the only one who's gonna be the new Iron Man, no one else.

Mysterio: Spider-Man's real... Spider-Man's real name is-- Spider-Man's real name is Peter Parker!

Trivia

  • Mysterio modeled his costume after Vision's body, Iron Man's high tech armor and Thor's otherworldly armor, claims to have a military background like Captain America, using "magic" and never showing any of his heroism to the public like Doctor Strange, sports a green color like the Hulk, uses drones to make illusions like Black Widow, and using illusions to deceive people like Scarlet Witch. This makes sense that Beck made himself an amalgamation of the Avengers to get the public's trust as well as sympathy, meaning that Brad Davis was right to refer him as "Iron Man and Thor rolled in one".
  • Mysterio is a dark reflection of Iron Man and Spider-Man.
    • For Iron Man, they both wear high-tech armor capable of fight, project blasts from his hands and wears a retractable helmet; despite being an illusion and his relationship with Peter Parker parallels to his relationship with Tony as he is a flawed mentor helping and protecting Peter, making him a replacement father figure who risked his own life for his protégé where as Mysterio initially appears as a kind and encouraging mentor with good advice but revealed to only be using him and dispose of him when no longer useful resulting seeing how sinister Mysterio was and understand that Tony maybe flawed but was a hero. This represents on what might have happened if Iron Man continued making weapons and having a opportunistic nature.
    • For Spider-Man, both were connected to Stark and employed by him to do great things and removed when failing to meet his expectations resulting of the origins as a superhero and supervillain alike. The only difference between the two is in spite of initially wanting the fame and glory in being a superhero, Peter grows stronger and become a true successor by understanding what it means to be a hero, is the nicest person in the MCU, defined by his responsibilities and steps up to save the day despite initial hesitation. Meanwhile, Beck became a superhero just to be recognized for his actions even if it was illegitimate and dangerous, chose to be his supposed "replacement" to personally spite Tony's memory, pretends to be nice when it's necessary for achieving his goals and drops it when it isn't, refuse to take any responsibility, threatens his allies and view's Peter's good hearted nature as a weakness.
  • Despite being the main antagonist of the second film of the Spider-Man film series within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Mysterio is far more evil and much more dangerous than the Vulture, his predecessor. This is because the Vulture turned to a life of crime to support his family and had redeemable traits whereas Mysterio became a criminal for pure selfishness and greed. Vulture proved to be honorable by not revealing Spidey's identity to Mac Gargan in gratitude for saving him and his daughter, Mysterio is against redemption and made it look like the Elemental attack had all been Spider-Man's fault and posthumously succeeded in exposing Spidey's secret identity to the whole world.
    • Incidentally, Tony Stark is indirectly responsible for their start to villainy. In Toomes' case, he lost his job when Tony and the U.S. government shut down his business and became a black market arms dealer to feed his family. Beck was fired by Tony, the latter aware of him being unstable, and orchestrated the Elementals' attacks just to gain good publicity.
  • Matt Damon was initially offered the role of Mysterio, but would ultimately turn it down. Interestingly, before the release of Spider-Man: Far From Home, Damon appeared in Thor: Ragnarok as an actor portraying Loki in an Asgardian play, and said character returned in Thor: Love and Thunder. Other actors considered to play Mysterio were Matthew Smith, Andrew Scott and Colin Farrell.
  • When asked about Mysterio's fate, director Jon Watts commented that he doesn't rule out Mysterio's possible survival but that Mysterio "seemed pretty dead for him". Jake Gyllenhaal has likewise stated that Mysterio may have died after all, whereas producer Amy Pascal has refused to confirm anything.
    • It's worth noting, however, that during Spider-Man's final battle with Mysterio a drone is seen shooting down Beck, however the Beck that was standing there was yet another illusion, the real Mysterio was never seen truly being shot as a result.
  • Mysterio is the first Spider-Man villain in film thus far to succeed at exposing Spider-Man's identity (as most antagonists in previous films, while they discovered it, either died with the secret or honorably refused to expose his identity).
  • It's rumored that Jake Gyllenhaal was meant to replace Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man in Spider-Man 2 when Sony fired him after the latter refused to take the role due to having a bout of back pain while filming Seabiscuit. However, Maguire managed to be healed and was hired again to play the role.
  • It's currently unknown whether Mysterio ordered William Ginter Riva to make the video with doctored footage incriminating Spider-Man in case he was killed (assuming that he is dead) or if Riva himself decided to do it to avenge his boss. Although due to Mysterio's spiteful nature, it seems more likely that he ordered William to do so.
    • There's also the fact that Mysterio ordered William to show the drones once Spiderman arrived, much to William's confusion as to how Mysterio was going to explain this to the public. It's possible that as Spiderman was fighting the drones, Mysterio ordered William to doctor the footage on the chance he wouldn't survive his encounter with Spiderman. He may have also had William show the drones because he intended to frame Spiderman for their attack.
    • There's also his last words to Spiderman when the latter calls him out on his actions, "You'll see Peter...people....need to believe...and nowadays....they'll believe anything". This could be his own foreshadowing of his framing of Spiderman.
  • Not counting Carlton Drake, Carnage, Riot, Mysterio is the most evil Spider-Man movie villain to date. He willingly became evil unlike the others who were manipulated or became evil by accidental circumstances. He is also implied to have killed thousands of people.
  • A scarecrow dressed up as Mysterio can be briefly seen in a commercial for No Way Home by Hyundai.
  • Concept art from Spider-Man: No Way Home reveals that Mysterio was in fact planned to reappear in the movie as he would have battled Doctor Strange during the final battle at Liberty Island.
