There are now two new slots on the release calendar for 2024 and 2025 from Sony Pictures. The studio announced Thursday that an “Untitled Sony/Marvel” film will be released on November 8th, 2024 and then a second “Untitled Sony/Marvel Live Action” film will be released on June 27th, 2025. Reports are coming out that the second film will be a Spider-Man film of some kind, but that’s not confirmed from Sony yet.
Of the two slots one is very likely the El Muerto movie that was announced a while ago that’s set to star Bad Bunny. Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer wrote the script for that one. It was set to move to the casting stage before the writer’s strike began. El Muerto would be the first Marvel film to have a Latino lead. The character comes from a Spider-Man comic about an antihero named Juan Carlos Estrada Sanchez, the son of a luchador. He finds himself next in line to inherit the ancestral power and mantle of “El Muerto”.
The actual storyline that El Muerto comes from is quite silly. J. Jonah Jameson puts on a wrestling match for charity to try to unmask Spider-Man. El Muerto is about as low on the pole as you can get for a superhero, but here’s hoping they make it work for the movie.
This is a developing story.
