Quentin Beck in Spider-Man: Far From Home
Tom Holland’s Peter Parker thought that Quentin Beck was a much-needed ally from another universe when the flashy new character made his MCU debut at the beginning of the 2019 movie Spider-Man: Far From Home. The fact that Quentin was played by the beloved actor Jake Gyllenhaal also didn’t help, as it immediately led casual fans to believe that the new character was one of the good guys.
However, long-time Spider-Man fans knew from the very start that the name Quentin Beck spells trouble, as it belongs to the supervillain called Mysterio. In the latter part of the film, it was revealed that Quentin was actually a former employee at Stark Industries who became embittered after Tony Stark disregarded his entire life’s work, resulting in Beck losing his job. Fueled by revenge, Beck teamed up with other former Stark employees to create Mysterio using their combat drones and his own hologram technology to create an illusion of his own superpowers.
