Jacob Batalon’s shocking transformation, part of his preparation for thenext ‘Spider-Man’ movie

Fil-Am actor Jacob Batalon shocks everyone with his lean figure in a recent Instagram post.

  • Marvel fans have started speculating about Batalon’s character, Ned, and his role in the next Spider-Man film.
  • The filming is said to start late this October.

Jacob Batalon surprised everyone when he showed his new figure in a recent photo uploaded on his Instagram account.

The Filipino-American star proudly displayed his impressive weight loss transformation, showing his leaner body.

“By the way, while I appreciate the concern, people can stop telling me to lose weight now,” he wrote as a caption to the photo which he uploaded on his 24th birthday.

Batalon rose to fame when he played the role of Ned Leeds in the latest Spider-Man movie from Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Fans have also started wondering about Batalon’s character and have speculated that he will turn into the Hobgoblin.

“I can definitely see Ned becoming a villain in a Spider-Man movie. Most likely Hobgoblin,” a Twitter user said.

However, not everyone is too keen on the idea as it might cause a misconception regarding the comic storyline of Hobgoblin wherein Ned was only brainwashed by the real Hobgoblin to believe that he was the villain himself.

In an interview, Batalon admitted that he too had a theory about Ned becoming Hobgoblin.

“That just further validates my theory of Ned becoming Hobgoblin, but hey… But it’d be so great [if] they’re not going to want me to die. [I hope] they’re going to want me to stay on and be part of the Sinister Six. That’s just my theory.”


The third installment of the Spider-Man series is set to start its filming in Atlanta, Georgia later this October. Doctor Strange, who is portrayed by actor Benedict Cumberbatch, is also said to be a part of the movie, replacing Robert Downey Jr.’s character, Iron Man, as Peter Parker’s mentor.
