Marvel's "El Muerto!" Live-Action

Along with a "Ghostbusters: Afterlife" sequel and "Venom 3", Sony Pictures has announced the latest Marvel Comics "Spider-Man" spin-off movie as "El Muerto!", starring wrestler, Grammy winner, platinum-selling recording artist Bad Bunny as the superpowered 'Luchador Juan Carlos Sanchez', set for release January 12, 2024:

"... the powers of the super powered wrestler 'el Muerto' have been passed down generation to generation. Each wrestler had to prove themselves to their oppressor, 'el Dorado', so that they could remain alive and keep their powers. When 'Marcus Estrada' presented his son 'Juan Carlo's to 'el Dorado', Juan Carlos cowered in terror, unwilling to fight him. Marcus Estrada sacrificed his life to try and save Juan Carlos. 

"Out of respect for his father's courage, el Dorado granted Juan Carlos ten years to travel and to become brave, and then to duel a masked wrestler and unmask him. Ten years later, el Muerto traveled to New York City and approached 'J. Jonah Jameson' to set up a charity event: A wrestling match, in which el Muerto would fight 'Spider-Man'. Jonah organized the match, hoping that el Muerto would defeat and unmask Spider-Man. 

"El Muerto and Spider-Man both attended the match, and Spider-Man was confident he would easily defeat el Muerto. The tide turned, and el Muerto nearly unmasked Spider-Man. Reflexively, Spider-Man stabbed el Muerto with his stingers, injecting him with a paralyzing poison. Spider-Man rescued el Muerto in the hospital when el Dorado came to claim his life. El Muerto came to and aided Spider-Man in defeating el Dorado. But  El Dorado still managed to escape before they managed to defeat him..."
