Spider-Man creators, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, introduced Mysterio in the comics in 1964.

Marvel has three movies set to launch next year, including Captain Marvel (March), Avengers 4 (May), and Spider-Man: Far From Home (July), so marketing for these movies has already started.

Mysterio is a special effects expert who commits crimes and fights Spider-Man using elaborate illusions, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Spider-Man: Far From Home was announced a few months ago.

He will be joining Tom Holland, who is reprising his role as Peter Parker / Spider-Man, as well as cast members including Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Marisa Tomei, Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Keaton.
