A big surprise This superstar becomes the new Marvel anti-hero after Venom and Morbius


While Spider-Man continues to swing officially through Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe, Sony has been using its film rights to the wall-crawler comics since 2018 to build its own parallel cinema universe around the villains and supporting characters from the comics (the so-called Sony Spider -Man Universe, SSU for short). After the success of the two » Venom » films (which just led to the announcement of «Venom 3″ ), the company is sticking to this plan despite the recent » Morbius » flop.

Next up here are Kraven The Hunter starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Madame Web starring Dakota Johnson. And now there’s another Marvel project that most viewers probably wouldn’t have known about either the title character or the associated actor (at least in the context of acting):

Musician Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio aka Bad Bunny is set to star in Sony’s newly announced Marvel anti-hero blockbuster El Muerto . This was announced by Sony and the singer as part of the cinema operator fair CinemaCon. Born in Puerto Rico in 1994, Ocasio becomes the first Hispanic to lead the cast of a live-action Marvel movie.

For a long time, Bad Bunny appeared primarily as a musician and in the course of his meteoric rise quickly became a forerunner of the Latin American trap scene. In 2020, he even found himself on Time magazine ‘s annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world. In both 2020 and 2021, he also became the first non-English-speaking musician to take first place in the Spotify annual charts for the most streamed artists.

Since 2021, Bad Bunny has been trying more and more as an actor. After a supporting role in the final third season of the Netflix series Narcos: Mexico and a cameo in Fast & Furious 9 (for which he also contributed a song), he is next up in the actioner Bullet Train opposite Brad to see Pitt. Ocasio has also had a passion for wrestling from an early age, which, after appearances in WWE, now also predestines him for his Marvel role…

This is El Muerto

El Muerto first appeared in the 2006 Spider-Man comics and goes by the real name Juan-Carlos Estrada Sánchez. He is the youngest member of a family of wrestlers, each wearing a mystical mask that grants them superhuman powers. In order to earn this and the title of El Muerto, however, the villain El Dorado must first be defeated. However, since Juan-Carlos refuses to fight, his father sacrifices himself for him to stop the villain.

The latter then gives Juan-Carlos ten years to develop the necessary skills and courage and then to unmask another fighter as a test. For this he chooses none other than Spider-Man, with whom he climbs into the ring. However, when he loses the fight and El Dorado attempts to kill him again, Juan-Carlos ultimately teams up with Spidey to defeat the villain.

Since the SSU has yet to do without Spider-Man himself, it is questionable to what extent the «El Muerto» film will follow this comic backstory. Sony has so far not given any details about the plot of the Marvel blockbuster and the other parties involved. The big screen adventure already has at least one theatrical release: «El Muerto» will start in German cinemas on January 11, 2024.

Those who want to catch Bad Bunny on the big screen before then can do so in Bullet Train, starring Brad Pitt , coming July 28, 2022 . There is already a foretaste of it in the trailer:
