Bad Bunny already has a director for his Marvel movie

Mexican filmmaker Jonás Cuarón, son of Alfonso Cuaronwill direct “El Muerto”, the new movie from the superhero universe of Marvel which will have bad bunny as protagonist.

According to an exclusive published by the newspaper “The Wrap” this Tuesday, later confirmed by the Hollywood press, the film is still in the pre-production phase and is scheduled to start filming next year to be released on January 12, 2024.

Bad Bunny will be the first Latino actor to star in a Marvel action moviewith a character, “El Muerto”, who appeared in the comics of “Spider-Man”which is why Sony will be the studio in charge of producing the film, since it has the rights to the arachnid superhero.

“El Muerto”, whose real name is Juan Carlos Estrada Sánchez, is a masked fighter whose strength lies precisely in that mask, inherited by his family for generations.

In some comic stories, “El Muerto” has interacted with “Spider-Man”, coming to star in a fight in which the Latino superhero was about to unmask Spider-Man.

But later, in another issue, “Spider-Man” and “El Muerto” teamed up to fight El Dorado, the villain who controls Juan Carlos’s powers and is responsible for his father’s death.

Although Bad Bunny will be the first Latino protagonist of Marvel cinema, the franchise has been betting on Hispanic talent for its productions for years: Recently Disney+ premiered the series “Moon Knight”starring the Guatemalan oscar isaac.

And there have been other prominent Latino performers in Marvel movies, like Salma Hayekwho gave life to Ajak, the first leader of the “Eternals” (2021).

For its part, Jonas Cuaron made his film debut with “Desierto”, a thriller about immigration in which he starred Gael Garcia Bernal and won the critics’ award at the 2015 Toronto Film Festival. In addition, wrote the script for “Gravity” with his father.
