Many were quite surprised when the announcement came that singer Bad Bunny is joining the Marvel universe. What caught everyone off-guard was that he was joining another of the many Spider-Man spinoffs that don’t feature the web-head and it would focus on one of his most obscure characters, El Muerto.
In an interview with GQ, Bad Bunny not only promoted his new album but also got a chance to share what inspired him to tackle the project and why he chose El Muerto as his character. As it turns out, his time growing up “watching wrestling” played a big part in the choice.
I grew up watching wrestling. This role is perfect, and I know ‘El Muerto’ is going to be epic. I’m a Marvel fan and the fact that I’m now part of this family still feels like a dream.Bad Bunny
It’s definitely going to be interesting how they tackle this project and if it may generally be a more self-contained story and not build up to a crossover, which was hinted at in the post-credit sequence of Morbius. There are still many questions surrounding what exactly Sony’s goal is with his franchise, and here’s hoping that it becomes a bit more clear in the near future.
