The 28-year-old's music is often defined as reggaetón and Latin rap with other genres incorporated into his music including rock, soul, and bachata.

Will Bad Bunny star in El Muerto?

Bad Bunny is set to star as the main character in the Spider-Man spin-off movie.

The news was announced at Cinemacon 2022 during Sony's panel where the platinum-selling recording artist made a surprise appearance.

The character of El Muerto (also known as Juan Carlos) was a super-powered wrestler who originally fought Spider-Man in a charity wrestling match.

El Muerto nearly unmasked the superhero but was stung by him, leaving the wrestler defeated.

Nemesis El Dorado then came to claim his life but El Muerto was saved by Spider-Man.

The superhero pair then become allies and defeat the villain.

El Muerto will be the first-ever Latin superhero to get his own film in the Marvel universe, following the release of Madame Web which marked the first female character from the Spider-Man universe to get her own movie.

So far, Bad Bunny is the only confirmed cast member for El Muerto but as the film is set in the Marvel universe, it is possible that Jared Leto, Tom Hardy, or Michael Keaton could make a cameo appearance.

Is there a release date for El Muerto?

El Muerto is scheduled for release on Friday, January 12, 2024.

The movie will be available exclusively in cinemas and a trailer is yet to be released by Sony Pictures.
