Spider-Man: Far From Home is out in the theaters now and the movie will most likely be another hit for the collaboration of Sony and Marvel Studios. The new adventure of everyone’s favorite wall-crawler will continue to push the limits of his powers and his ability to be the superhero he wants to be. One hurdle in front of Spider-Man, aka Peter Parker, comes in the form of Mysterio, aka Quentin Beck. The character comes off as a new “hero” or possible mentor for Parker as he navigates his life after the events of Avengers: Endgame.
After the end of this movie, that navigation gets a bit trickier and someone could still be around to make that a bigger problem than it already it is.
Most of comic books fans—or fans who have a passing knowledge of Spider-Man’s rogue gallery—know what Mysterio all is about. The villain has been a serious thorn in Parker’s side for quite some time as a master of illusions. This gift has allowed Mysterio to be one of the top-ranking members of the Sinister Six and that has bled somewhat into the Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Quentin Beck/Mysterio, played by Jake Gyllenhaal, was thought to be the friend that Peter Parker needed in the film but does the old heel-turn on our hero. A couple of confrontations happen between the two characters resulting in Mysterio dying at the hands of his own design. By the mid-credits, Mysterio has enacted a plan from beyond the grave that places the villain as the hero in the public’s eye and turns Spider-Man from hero to villain.
Some sites have an idea going around that might prove that Mysterio is not dead at all. They claim that Mysterio may have faked his death with the aid of a villain hiding in plain sight. Dmitri Smerdyakov—who is also known as the Chameleon—is another enemy of Spider-Man. The man is known as the master of disguise—a lot of masters going around—and this such character was in Far From Home as an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.
The site speculates that this character might have been working with Mysterio behind the scenes and may have switched places with the real Beck and died at the end of the movie. This could be possible as it’s been shown in the film that Mysterio is always thinking three steps ahead. This is wild stuff because it easily setups the return of Quentin Beck in a future Spider-Man movie. Here’s hoping for a Sinister Six entry into the MCU.
