In April 2022, Bad Bunny was announced as the star of the new Marvel movie El Muerto, which tells the story of the wrestler character from the Spider-Man comic book series. El Muerto was first introduced in 2006.
“I love wrestling. I grew up wrestling and I’m a wrestler. I’m a former champion so I love this character. I think it’s the perfect role for me and it’s going to be epic,” he said in a statement meeting. The “Yonaguni” singer also has experience with wrestling: in 2021 he made his wrestling debut with WWE WrestleMania.
With his starring role in El Muerto, Bad Bunny will make history as the first Latin woman to star in a Marvel film. The film is scheduled to hit theaters on January 12, 2024.
Bad Bunny’s acting career
El Muerto won’t be Bad Bunny’s first on-screen role. He played Mexican drug trafficker Kitty Paéz on Netflix Narcos: Mexico.
In 2022 he will make his Hollywood debut in the film fast train. In his first big screen role, Bad Bunny will star alongside Brad Pitt and Sandra Bullock. It’s a busy year for Bad Bunny: He kicked off the year with his tour ‘El Último Tour del Mundo’ (in support of the album of the same name) and will embark on the ‘World’s Hottest Tour’ later in 2022.
