The news was announced during Sony’s panel at Cinemacon, with Bad Bunny surprising the crowd. Reports state that the El Muerto project will be Marvel’s first standalone film with a Latin superhero lead, and that Bad Bunny “took matters into his own hands” in regards to finding which Spider-Man character will be the best for him.
El Muerto was saved by Spider-Man when the former faced his oppressor el Dorado:
“El Muerto traveled to New York City and approached J. Jonah Jameson to set up a charity event: A wrestling match, in which el Muerto would fight Spider-Man. Jonah organized the match, hoping that el Muerto would defeat and unmask Spider-Man. El Muerto and Spider-Man both attended the match, and Spider-Man was confident he would easily defeat el Muerto. The tide turned, and el Muerto nearly unmasked Spider-Man. Reflexively, Spider-Man stabbed el Muerto with his stingers, injecting him with a paralyzing poison.
Spider-Man rescued el Muerto in the hospital when el Dorado came to claim his life. El Muerto came to and aided Spider-Man in defeating el Dorado. El Dorado still managed to escape before they managed to defeat him.”
