Fans might have been wondering what Mysterio’s role is supposed to be in the newest Spider-Man movie. With much-conflicting characteristics and roles between what is seen on the trailer vs. the canon comic series, people are expecting more from him.
Eric Carroll wants the story with Mysterio to have the similar in-depth forging of bonds with especially our young Spider-Man. He compares it to Doctor Strange when he talks about having Jake Gyllenhaal continuous appearance.
And then Eric said something that maybe many fans have expected to develop when they introduce Mysterio as a hero:
“We wanted to give them time to have relationships so when and if we get to do something different with Mysterio, it really feels like a betrayal… and we’re hopefully setting the stage for something really spectacular and that feels really Spider-Man, which is, again, if we get to do something else with this character, then they’ve already got this really personal relationship.”
Quentin Beck’s arrival to the Earth we know where Peter Parker lives in results from the torn down space-door between different universes. He can fly and shoots green lasers as well as fight the enemies that escaped from the hole. Moreover, he works very well with local superheroes, an act that confused some people. He developed what seemed to be a ‘big brother, little brother’ relationship with the older hero.
So, just like how Mordo made extreme decisions and became a villain to Doctor Strange, we might witness Mysterio’s final decision to become the special effects supervillain he’s always been in the comics.
