Recently, several fans have been speculating whether Mysterio will be the villain for the post Endgame movie, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. Tom Holland explained what kind of enemies the young superhero is going to face during his vacation in Europe.
During CCXP (Comic Con Experience in Brazil), Tom Holland confirms the identity of the villains together with the fact that Mysterio will join hand with Spider-Man in battling them. The four elementals of unknown origin are going to bring disasters and catastrophic damages over the biggest continent on Earth. These elementals are very old stories and were originally the enemies of Pharaoh and the Living Mummy, N’Kantu.
The four mysterious elementals first appeared in Supernatural Thrillers #8 back in 1974. The four elementals were ‘gods’, but they were actually creatures of a different realm, wielding the classic power over nature according to their name.
While the comics had the four elementals plotting their return through controlling N’Kantu who was forcefully brought to their realm, the movie follows the four elementals who managed to escape. Among the four, Zephyr had the background of a serving girl and bears the closest characteristics of a human being. Zephyr is also known to be the character than both prides, but also laments her current status as an immortal, powerful being.
Jake Gyllenhaal added:
“There are these threats to the world, the Elementals, elemental creatures. And Mysterio is someone who knows about them and wants to make sure that the world is safe from them.“
