According to IMDb, Mysterio.

Jake Gyllenhaal ... Quentin Beck / Mysterio

He is typically a villain.

From Wikipedia:

Quentin Beck does not possess superhuman abilities but he is an expert designer of special effects devices and stage illusions, a master hypnotist and magician and an amateur chemist and roboticist. He has extensive knowledge of hand-to-hand combat techniques learned as a stuntman...

That is Mysterio, a perennial Spidey villain.

His powers stem from his mastery of special effects and stage illusion, using them to mess with the senses and perceptions of his enemies. He also uses various gasses to do things like dull Spidey's Spider-sense, among other things.
