After Venom and Morbius, the next Spider-Man spin-off coming to the big screen is El Muerto — a supernatural superhero luchador to be played by pop star Bad Bunny.

Movie studio Sony announced the flick at film industry shindig CinemaCon in Las Vegas Monday. It’s set to be released January 12, 2024. Sony also confirmed Venom 3 will follow last year’s sequel Venom: Let There Be Carnage starring Tom Hardy, as well as confirming a sequel to Ghostbusters: Afterlife. No dates for those have been announced as yet.

Bad Bunny, also known as Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, was Spotify’s most-streamed artist in both 2020 and 2021, topping 9 billion streams last year. The Puerto Rican rapper, producer and occasional WWE professional wrestler will be Marvel’s first live-action Latino lead. He’s also set to join Brad Pitt and an all-star cast in forthcoming action flick Bullet Train.

Bad Bunny’s top rope experience at WWE Wrestlemania and Royal Rumble will stand him in good stead to play El Muerto, a lesser-known Marvel comics character whose wrestling super powers are passed down through the generations leading to a masked wrestling match with Spider-Man himself. The masked wrestler was created by writer Peter David and artist Roger Cruz, first appearing in 2006.

Sony holds the film rights to various characters from the Spider-Man comics. While Sony and Disney work together to put Tom Holland’s friendly neighbourhood webslinger in Marvel Cinematic Universe movies like No Way Home, Sony has its own universe of spin-offs beginning with Tom Hardy as Venom. Other Sony Spider-spin-offs include this year’s vampire flick Morbius, starring Jared Leto, followed by the forthcoming Kraven the Hunter, starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson in Jan. 13, 2023, and Madame Web starring Dakota Johnson, expected July 7, 2023.
