Despite being one of the more popular Marvel supervillains, Mysterio has not yet appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe thanks to his association to Spider-Man; the webslinger is only one solo film into his MCU existence.

First time out he tangled with Michael Keaton’s Vulture, and Keaton is confirmed to return for the “Spider-Man: Homecoming” sequel due July 5, 2019.
