Sony Pictures has announced another spin-off in the universe of Marvel characters associated with Spider-Man; Almirto. Even Marvel Comic fans are baffled. While representing the first Latin superhero to have a green light for his own movie, El Muerto has appeared quite a bit in Spider-Man comics. And as Sony expands its universe of Venom, Carnage, Morbius, and Michael Keaton Vulture from Spider-Man: HomecomingHow can El Muerto equalize?
Who is El Muerto in Marvel Comics?
While some Marvel Comics characters like Venom and Morbius have decades of history to sum up, El Muerto has only appeared in one Spider-Man story. El Muerto appeared in Spider-Man friendly neighborhood #6 in 2006.
Juan Carlos Sánchez trained under his father Marcos Estrada de la Garcia to become El Muerto’s next, a Sufi nickname inspired by the luchador. However, when Juan Carlos backed away from taking power, the mysterious figure El Dorado tried to kill him. His father intervened, and El Dorado brutally murdered him instead.
Juan Carlos was given 10 years to prove himself by revealing another fighter, or else El Dorado would come for him.
Ten years later, El Muerto challenges Spider-Man to a fight, but when he fails to defeat Webhead, El Dorado moves to kill him. Then Spider-Man helped him escape, most likely to return to his native Mexico.
While he never physically reappeared, Tony Stark included him among dozens and dozens of other post-Civil War Marvel Comics superheroes with Captain America.
El Muerto could join Sony’s Sinister Six with Venom, Morbius and Vulture
It’s hard to say how he could get into the Sony Marvel Universe. They were founded by Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) and Michael Morbius (Jared Leto). However, neither Venom nor Morbius faced El Muerto.
Sony teased the Sinister Six project in Morbius The credits end when Michael Keaton’s vulture contacts Morbius. Craven the fisherman Starring, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, is also on the list, giving Sony four out of six villains. And with Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny playing El Muerto, they’re already on track with a potential fifth member.
El Muerto was never part of the Sinister Six at Marvel Comics. He was never part of any team.
While Sony may keep the inspiration for El Muerto from Marvel Comics as in poison And Morbius universe, they may plan to reinvent the character.
Could Spider-Man look like a Bad Bunny warrior?
The biggest question on everyone’s mind is how and if Spider-Man could get into the El Muerto movie. distance Spider-Man: No way home, Andrew Garfield saw a huge crowd of fans pushing him back The Amazing Spider-Man 3Maybe with Emma Stone.
And while Sony has confirmed that “Spider-Man” exists in their world, they haven’t revealed who they are.
“Bringing El Muerto to life is incredible,” Bad Bunny told the audience at CinemaCon (via CNN).
For now, fans will have to wait to see how El Muerto deals with Venom and Morbius.
