The character of El Muerto is not someone that general audiences will know about, as even die-hard Marvel Comics readers might not recognize this deep-cut pull. Juan-Carlos Sanchez aka El Muerto is a man who has super strength thanks to a mystical mask that is passed down throughout his family from him. While he initially wants to avoid this path of life, the death of his father leaves Sanchez on a path to become El Muerto, which includes a brief wrestling match with Spider-Man. The character has only appeared in two comics to this point.

Although El Muerto might not be a Marvel character, most fans were hoping to see lead to a solo film, it is a role that reportedly attracted Bad Bunny. Not only will he become the first Latino character to lead a live-action Marvel movie, but Bad Bunny is also a wrestler in real life. It comes after he’s reportedly delivered a scene-stealing performance in Bullet Train for Sony, so it makes sense that they’d want to keep Bad Bunny around. The dead does not yet have a writer or director officially attached, but that will have to change relatively soon ahead of a 2024 release date.
