Pic of the Day

Just 28 days until release and Marvel has released yet another official picture of Jake Gyllenhaal in his Mysterio costume for the Spider-Man: Far From Home movie... and it immediately struck me as somehow familiar. And I've been staring at Jake for so long and for so hard that it only took me about ten seconds to cycle through my encyclopedic memory of All Things Gyllenhaal before I realized what it was that that pose was reminding me of...

... was this moment here from his 2010 rom-com Love and Other Drugs. And I think you'll now appreciate why that's one that's burned fairly firmly into my hard-wiring. (I keep using the words "firm" and "hard" how funny! See more from that LAOD scene in this old post.) Anyway here's to hoping that below the frame the Mysterio we see up top has also wandered out of his space-room sans trousers, cuz that's what the next phase of the MCU is really needing to take it to the next level, if you ask me...
