Bad Bunny keeps making history. The Puerto Rican artist has been cast in El Muerto, making him the first-ever latino to headline a live-action Marvel film.

“To bring El Muerto to life is just incredible … so exciting,” Bad Bunny, whose real name is Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, told the crowd at CinemaCon.

In the comics, El Muerto is known as Juan-Carlos Estrada Sanchez, a Mexican wrestler who is granted powers through his mask. The superhero made his first appearance in the 2006 comic “Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man” No. 6 by Peter David and Roger Cruz, in which he challenges Spider-Man to a wrestling match.

It still remains unclear if Spider-Man will make an appearance in the upcoming film. However, anything is possible when it comes to Sony’s Spider-Man Universe.

El Muerto is slated to hit theaters on January 12, 2024.
