Initially presented as a legend from another universe who wound up in Peter Parker's (Tom Holland) Earth through an inter-dimensional entry that opened up after Thanos' snap in Avengers: Infinity War, Mysterio collaborated with Spider-Man to battle the supposed Elementals.
But, as comic book perusers know, Beck's modus has dependably been established on trickery, prompting a plot to contort that was successfully revealed in arguably one the most informative scenes in the MCU. After he got the key 'Tony Stark bit of innovation' from Peter, Mysterio got in an ardent monolog uncovering that everything was a ploy to bait the web shooter to have a confide in him. Gyllenhaal was so incredible in the scene and it turns out, it was some way or another motivated by Downey.
During a promotional talk time with Yahoo Entertainment, host Kevin Polowy asked Gyllenhaal about director Jon Watts and Holland's remarks that Beck's monologue in Far From Home was in any case prompted by Downey.
The actor was reluctant to delve into the scene given that it's a major reveal in the movie, so he tried to explain around it, but he eventually said "there were a few moments that were cognizant" of him mining "inspirations" from RDJ. Further, since both actors have worked with each other in David Fincher's 'Zodiac' (2007), it was generally simple for Gyllenhaal to channel his former co-star.
This was an unpretentious reference to the MCU's inaugural actor, yet Far From Home is sprinkled with homages to the character Downey played in the franchise. Clearly, the way in which he passed had an essential impact on the reason of the film; however, the 23rd movie from the Marvel cinematics took it a step further with visuals of Iron Man.
There were a few paintings in every city that Peter and his companions headed out to that were committed to the fallen saint. Besides that, Peter making his very own suit at the back of the Stark Jet is a clear reference to Tony and his innovation works.
Gyllenhaal's conveyance of Mysterio's big discourse, in fact, have a few minutes reminiscent of Downey. But, Mysterio copying the genius, tycoon character rather was a significant component of the story since Peter is as yet lamenting over Stark's demise, making it a lot simpler to control the young hero.
In the greater size of things, Beck's plan was likewise to turn into an Avenger-kind of hero, and given Stark's penance in Endgame, Beck's basically trying to turn himself into the next Iron Man. The intriguing part about this is Downey has been synonymous to Tony Stark that it's hard to isolate the two.
So while Mysterio was attempting to emit a similar vibe as Stark in Spider-Man: Far From Home, especially in regards to his association with Peter, some could contend that in some respect, he's additionally simply imitating Downey.
