Details for the movie, which is slated to come out July 5, 2019, are scarce.

However, according to the Hollywood Reporter, Gyllenhaal could play Mysterio, a villain who's known for using hypnotism, though he has no supernatural powers.

Sony declined to comment on the matter to BuzzFeed News.

Although the news isn't confirmed, the internet is rejoicing the possible inclusion of Gyllenhaal in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
