Tom Holland helped Jake Gyllenhaal overcome his anxiety on Spider-Man

Jake Gyllenhaal Says Tom Holland Helped Him Cope With Anxiety While Filming 2019 Spider-Man: Far From Home. This December will see the release of the MCU’s third and potentially final Spider-Man solo film, titled No way home. Jon Watts-directed film will resume where Far from home Stopped, with the identity of Peter Parker (Holland) that has just been revealed to the world. Now that everyone knows he’s Spider-Man, Peter’s life is turned upside down, prompting him to seek out Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) for help.

Not only has Peter’s secret identity disappeared, he has also been framed for the murder of Mysterio (Gyllenhaal). Spider-Man: Far From Home initially positioned Mysterio as a hero from another universe who was the only one with the ability to defeat the destructive creatures known as the Elementals. However, as fans familiar with the history of Spider-Man knew very well, Mysterio was little more than a villainous charlatan pretending to be a hero when in reality, he was creating false chaos. Peter took the lead in the end, but Mysterio’s reach will still be I felt good in Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Gyllenhaal put on a memorable performance as Mysterio, particularly once the truth behind his motivations was revealed. However, the actor had a hard time adjusting to the Marvel universe. Speaking in The Howard Stern Show earlier this week (via THR), Gyllenhaal admitted that on his first day of Spider-Man: Far From Home, he got so anxious that he kept forgetting his lines. Fortunately, Holland was able to help him get through it. Gyllenhaal said:

“It was driving me crazy. It was a scene with [Samuel L.] Jackson, Tom… there were several actors in that scene. And I remember not being able to remember my lines. I was the wooden board. And they were like, ‘Whoa’. And I went up to Tom Holland and said, ‘Dude, help me. He says, ‘Everything is fine, man. Just relax.’ It was like it was me in so many situations. And I finally did. I just put a lot of pressure on [myself] because I love that world. “

Gyllenhaal is perhaps one of the most skilled character actors working today, but even he is overwhelmed by the size of a Marvel production. Spider-Man: Far From Home It was the 23rd movie in the long-running franchise, which means it’s probably bigger than before and also performs like a well-oiled machine. For newcomers like Gyllenhaal, it can be a lot to process. Thankfully, he worked it out with Holland’s help, further solidifying the genuine friendship between them that has become a viral sensation among fans.

Gyllenhaal is probably a pro at navigating Marvel productions by now, although he probably doesn’t have a part in Spider-Man: No Way Home. There are theories as to how Mysterio could return, but most signs so far point to him having a spiritual presence rather than a physical one. However, Gyllenhaal managed to make his mark on the MCU with his trademark go-to-all style, even despite being riddled with nerves on his first day. In any case, Gyllenhaal’s Spider-Man: Far From Home The story is inspiring, because it shows that even Oscar nominees like him get anxious at times. Stars … they are just like us!
