As of December last year, Spider-Man: Far From Home star Jake Gyllenhaal is finally on Instagram, and while discussing some of his earliest posts with Jimmy Fallon, the actor gave shout-outs to his co-star Tom Holland, and more unusually, fan artist BossLogic.
You may already be familiar with the work of this popular digital artist, who specializes in designs related to major film franchises. Back in December, Gyllenhaal even shared one of BossLogic’s creations on Instagram, which altered a photo of himself, Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman so that the three stars matched their Marvel characters – Mysterio, Deadpool and Wolverine, respectively. The image was brought up when Gyllenhaal appeared on The Tonight Show, prompting the actor to clarify that he couldn’t take credit for the edits:
“That’s actually a guy named BossLogic. He did that actually. Yeah we should give a shoutout to that guy, because I have no artistic skill whatsoever. There’d be no possibility I could pull that off.”
BossLogic himself has since taken to Instagram to say that he was left “speechless” and “truly humbled” by the mention. After having a little fun with the artist’s name, however, Gyllenhaal and Fallon’s conversation quickly moved to Holland, and as many have done before, Gyllenhaal characterized his co-star as a really nice guy:
“He’s great dude. He’s awesome. He’s the nicest guy in the world. I’m super into him as Spider-Man.”
Funnily enough, while Spider-Man and Mysterio are regular foes in the comics, the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel will see the two of them team up to take on Elementals across Europe. Of course, since Quentin Beck is known for his deceptive ways, fans are already speculating that he may not be as heroic as he seems.
Either way, it’s unlikely that the two of them will still be friends by the end of the movie, but we’ll find out how this unlikely duo fares in their mission when Spider-Man: Far From Home hits theaters on July 5th, 2019.
