Deadline has confirmed that Jake Gyllenhaal in talks to play the villainous Mysterio in Sony Pictures' sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming.

The rumor actually broke early this morning, but because of the source (The Sun) nobody paid that much attention. However, the tabloids do get it right from time to time, it seems.

Mysterio is a Spider-Man baddie fans have been hoping to see get the live-action treatment for years now, so this news is bound to generate a lot of hype. As for Gyllenhaal? Well, this will presumably put any further speculation that he's set to replace Ben Affleck as The Batman to rest.

Plot details for the Spidey sequel are still under wraps, but director Jon Watts is said to be searching for new male and female leads. According to Variety, the studio wants the male lead to be played by an A-list actor, and "actresses for the female role, which is expected to be someone in her 20s, are currently being auditioned by execs."

The trade also confirms that Michael Keaton, Zendaya and Marisa Tomei will reprise their roles.
