Sure, the images and videos are all pretty grainy, and they don't represent an "official look" by any stretch of the imagination, but they didn't have to. Despite the low quality, these set photos did more than enough to get fans over-the-top excited for the Spidey's new nemesis.
Folks flooded Twitter of the weekend with their reactions to Mysterio's new look and, surprisingly, almost everyone agreed. Gyllenhaal's Mysterio appears to be a homerun for Marvel and Sony.
There are a couple of people who wished he'd been donning the classic fishbowl helmet but, save for that complaint, the vast majority can't wait to see what Gyllenhaal looks like in the final version of the film.
Here's what the Marvel fans of Twitter had to say once the Mysterio suit made its way online:
HOW DOES MARVEL EXPECT ME TO SIDE WITH PETER PARKER WHEN MYSTERIO IS LOOKING LIKE THIS?? pic.twitter.com/WB1gKZXB5r— esme (@mcurose) September 30, 2018
I think Mysterio will be just as good as Vulture. Jake will do a great job I can already tell. pic.twitter.com/n91671YrFv— Foggy Nelson ? (@SpencerMemes) September 30, 2018
I don’t care who plays Mysterio. My only loyalty is to the costume. Go fishbowl or go home. pic.twitter.com/3EBX5edKz7— Minovsky (@MinovskyArticle) October 1, 2018
