One might argue in favor as a result of every MCU film appears like two or three motion pictures anyway. This identical feeling applies to Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) in Spider-Man: Far From Home. Regardless, followers nonetheless suppose it was by no means fairly sufficient for a pointy villain like Quentin Beck.

Considering how manipulative Beck/Mysterio is, followers are beginning to suppose he by no means died as proven on the finish of Far From Home. Logical proof would level to Beck setting issues as much as out Parker as a terrorist/assassin whereas former faked his personal loss of life.

Many followers need previous villains to return somewhat than relegated to 1 movie

On Reddit lately, many followers expounded about villains like Ultron being too good to not return in some unspecified time in the future. A very long time has handed since everybody noticed Ultron, although, not together with a combined opinion in regards to the character on the time.

Seeing Ultron return after the loss of life of Tony Stark would additionally imply just a little piece of Stark’s previous self returning. Chances are much better for different villains returning, notably Mysterio. Months in the past, one other Reddit dialogue speculated on whether or not Quentin Beck actually was lifeless after being one of the crafty villains of all time.

A consensus mentioned he in all probability was nonetheless alive, notably with a key Easter egg scene with Beck within the early a part of Far From Home. As famous by keen-eyed viewers final 12 months, Beck is seen in civilian garments strolling behind Peter Parker in Venice. Beck and his cohorts apparently adopted Parker to achieve intel on him earlier than going ahead with their devious plan.

With Beck being this insidious, it provides all of the extra credibility towards him making his loss of life an phantasm somewhat than actuality. Yes, when a supervillain like Mysterio has back-up plans to the back-up plans, you already know he has the potential to do just about something.

No one is aware of but what the plot of Spider-Man 3 might be. Because of COVID-19 delays, any hypothesis will stay for possible a 12 months or extra. All anybody actually is aware of is Peter Parker has to clear his title resulting from Mysterio’s doctored video J. Jonah Jameson launched to the general public.

If Mysterio did survive, how wouldn’t it be defined? He was supposedly killed when his personal drones establishing the illusions misfired and fatally wounded him. Even this may need been an phantasm, nonetheless, since Mysterio all the time appeared half-a-dozen steps forward in all his illusionary plans.

Then once more, different followers on Reddit do suppose Mysterio is lifeless, solely as a result of all of the villains have not less than one flaw about them. A easy miscalculation in not having the ability to dodge the drone firings could also be a easy sufficient rationalization.

Also, since Mysterio had a bunch of rogues working for him (as former Stark Industries staff), they may hold Mysterio alive as an phantasm/hologram, regardless of if Quentin Beck did die.

That above scene the place Beck was seen following Parker in Venice was by no means observed by many followers till weeks or months after the very fact. Plenty of viewers needed to pause the video to catch Beck there.

Of course, this was saved secret all alongside as the right Easter egg. What if Marvel determined to try this as a option to steadily deliver Mysterio again at a future date?

Other hypothesis about his return rests on the Sinister Six. Five of these characters are already arrange within the Spider-Man movies to maybe make this a actuality. Not having Mysterio part of the six (as within the comedian books) would make no sense.

One factor everybody has discovered is the MCU is steadily veering extra away from the comedian ebook tales. Giving a special twist to Mysterio returning would turn into extra fascinating, together with having him within the shadows for some time because the slippery eel he’s.
