In this world of special effects driven movies, who better to play a villain than an outdated and disgruntled SFX wizard? Frustrated that his more practical approach to stunts and effects has become obsolete, Quentin Beck decided to turn his skills to crime instead.
Mysterio’s main MO is to use holograms combined with gases, robots, chemicals, and/or hypnosis to confuse and disorient people (namely Spider-Man) allowing him to easily take them out. His signature is a cloak of mist that would look amazing in 3D, along with all of his other illusions.
Mysterio could turn The Amazing Spider-Man 2 into a psychological thriller rivaling even The Dark Knight, where Peter Parker loses his grasp on reality and begins to doubt whether or not he’s even really Spider-Man.
Suggested Actor: Nathan Fillion
Mysterio is one of Spider-Man’s most theatrical villains and needs to be played by an equally theatrical actor. Fillion is absolutely the man for the job; theatricality is his middle name. Never one to be upstaged, Fillion’s swollen head would fit perfectly in Mysterio’s fish bowl helmet.
