The Oscar nominee has given in and joined Instagram, and if his first post is any indication, we expect a ton of adorableness over the coming months.

Jake Gyllenhaal has confirmed his long-rumoured involvement in Spider-Man: Far From Home in his first-ever Instagram post.

Actor Jake Gyllenhaal has been roped in to star in the upcoming sequel of popular superhero film "Spider-Man: Homecoming".According to reports, it's now unknown what role he would be playing, but people connected to the project say he would likely be the new villain, joining Michael Keaton, who will return to reprise his role of Vulture.

The caption reads: "I just realized I'm not playing Spider-Man".

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige previously confirmed the 2019 sequel will take Peter Parker out of NY for a European adventure in London that will reflect the global aftermath of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4.

Spider-Man: Far From Home sees Peter Parker embarking on a global adventure and has been described as grander in scale and funnier than Homecoming.

Editors at The Hollywood Reporter claimed in May that Gyllenhaal was in talks to play Mysterio, and in October, photos from the production in the Czech Republic surfaced online and showed him dressed in a suit and cape.

Do you think Gyllenhaal will make a great Spider-Man villain? This time around Peter and his friends go on a trip to Europe where he has to save his friends from Mysterio aka Quentin Beck.
