    El Muerto Starring Bad Bunny Gets A Director On Board. There Is A ‘Roma’ Connection

    Marvel Studios in collaboration with Sony Pictures wanted to diversify the universe. In search of one, they stumbled upon the Latin Grammy winner artist Bad Bunny. In search of a character that fits his Latin persona well, Bad Bunny found El Muerto. It was uncertain who will helm the film, but the studio found a director for the film.

    The collaboration of Marvel with Sony Pictures had a lull with ‘Morbius.’ However, the studio has found three projects which will revive the partnership and hopefully bring commercial gains. One of them is ‘El Muerto’ starring Bad Bunny. For the project, Marvel and Sony Pictures were looking for a helmer and finally, they stopped the search after Jonás Cuarón came on board. But, there is a ‘Roma‘ connection to it!
