Spider Man: Far from home, more humor, less originality (Review)

PREMIERE: After Prince of Persiawe thought you were done with blockbusters… And bam, here you are in Spiderman !

JAKE GYLLENHAAL: Sorry ! (Laughs) You seem disappointed…

No, not at all, but I think your fan club was surprised…

So much the better ! My theory is that an acting career inevitably ends up becoming “meta”. A comment on herself. The choices you make do not only depend on the quality of what you read, the emotion a script gives you, your desire to play this or that character… No, you also have to know how to shake the coconut tree. Take risks and opt for films in which, precisely, no one expects you. When I did Okja, for example, some said it was the worst performance they had ever seen. I thought it was great! (Laughs)

Really ?

Yes, frankly. It didn't offend me. I don't take it any more seriously than if someone said of one of my interpretations that it was one of the most beautiful they had ever seen. Because it makes no sense! Am I supposed to believe that?

And so, Spiderman

Honestly, Marvel movies are cool. The characters they portray are fascinating. I was offered the opportunity to be part of this universe, and I admit that it scared me a little. Because I don't know these films well. So I did the same thing as usual: I took a risk.

Here is the trailer for Far From Home :

Jake Gyllenhaal: “I want to immerse myself in my roles, not just do that”
