El Muerto, the Marvel movie starring Bad Bunny, confirms its director and screenwriter


The upcoming Spider-Man spin-off, El Muerto, It already has a director: Jonás Cuarón.

According to The Wrap, the director, known for directing the 2015 thriller Desert, has joined the project, bringing the shadowy character of Spider-Man to the big screen.

Also, Blue Beetle screenwriter Gareth Dunnet-Alcoceris writing the script, which is apparently in the development phase.

Jonás Cuaron will bring the Mexican wrestler to the big screen.

El Muerto will star Puerto Rican musician Bad Bunny (aka Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio) as the super powerful Mexican masked wrestler. Bad Bunny was Spotify’s most streamed artist in 2020 with 8.3 billion, and again in 2021 with 9.1 billion. Bad Bunny has recently made his film debut in Bullet Train.

In the comics, El Muerto (real name Juan Carlos Estrada Sánchez) is the son of a wrestler who discovers that he will inherit a mystical wrestling mask that will endow him with superhuman strength and endurance.

The character first appeared in 2006’s Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man #6, in which Spider-Man faces off against the wrestler at a benefit event organized by J. Jonah Jameson…a fight in which the loser would be unmasked and his identity would be revealed.

Whether this fight makes it into the movie remains to be seen, but it would certainly be an interesting way to expand the Spider-Versewhich has seen Venom and Morbius bring some of their main characters to the big screen.

Of course, the Spider-Verse is about to get even bigger, with Kraven the Hunter on the way in 2023 with Aaron Taylor-Johnson in the lead role. Plus, there’s Madame Web in 2024 starring Dakota Johnson and Sydney Sweeney.
