Pop star Bad Bunny takes lead in Sony Marvel movie El Muerto

Puerto Rican rapper and singer to play superpowered wrestler after his recent WWE wrestling appearances

Bad Bunny, the world’s most popular musician on Spotify for the past two years, will play the lead in a new movie for Sony’s Marvel universe.

The 28-year-old Puerto Rican vocalist, real name Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, will star in El Muerto, whose titular character is a wrester with a superpowered mask.

“To bring El Muerto to life is just incredible … so exciting,” Bad Bunny told an audience at industry event CinemaCon. The film is scheduled for release in 2024.

Alongside his hugely successful music career, Bad Bunny has appeared as a wrestler at big WWE events, such as WrestleMania 37 in 2021 and Royal Rumble earlier this year.

This week, he announced the title of his next album, Un Verano Sin Ti, though a release date has not been set. It will follow the three full-length records he released in 2020: YHLQMDLG, Las Que No Iban a Salir and El Último Tour del Mundo, whose popularity – particularly in the Americas – made him the most streamed artist on Spotify in 2020 and 2021.

El Muerto will continue a burgeoning acting career for Bad Bunny, who also appears in the forthcoming Japan-set thriller Bullet Train, starring Brad Pitt in the lead.

El Muerto also continues to expand the Spider-Man universe of characters shepherded by Sony Pictures alongside the core Marvel stable. After two movies with the character Venom and the recent critically panned Morbius, there are to be two more Sony-Marvel films before El Muerto: Kraven the Hunter, starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Madame Web, starring Dakota Johnson.
