Jake Gyllenhaal has spotted a familiar face while enjoying the Venice Film Festival, running into a version of his own Spider-Man character, Mysterio.
Yet more proof of the multiverse, right?!
The actor, who starred alongside Tom Holland in Spider-Man: Far From Home, excitedly shared the chance meeting to Instagram.
He posted a snap of himself looking a little concerned, with Mysterio lurking in the background, before a close-up of the cosplayer.
‘Ran into an old friend in Venezia,’ he wrote, with actor Josh Gad wasting no time in commenting: ‘Take. Him. Out.’
That’s definitely one way to deal with any confusion.

‘It’s a Mysterio variant ??,’ one fan declared, while another added: ‘I can’t tell who’s the real one ??♀️’.
The next Spider-Man movie, No Way Home is set for release in December this year with Tom returning as Parker and Zendaya as MJ.
After J. Jonah Jameson revealed Spider-Man’s true identity at the end of 2019’s Far From Home, Peter (Tom) is left dealing with the whole world knowing he is inside that suit, and believing he is responsible for the death of Mysterio (Jake).

As his friends and family get dragged into the mess, Peter is struggling and just wants to focus on his newfound relationship with MJ (Zendaya), so approaches Doctor Steven Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) to cast a spell to stop anyone from knowing his secret.
The multiverse is about to be messed with in a big way, with Doc Ock – played by Alfred Molina – being revived, despite dying in Spider-Man 2.
Many fans are hoping this will lead to Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield reprising their roles as Spider-Man in the movie, although the pair have kept very quiet about any potential involvement.
We can dream!
Spider-Man: No Way Home is released in cinemas on December 17.
