Sony Pictures said Wednesday that it has removed Bad Bunny’s Spider-Man spinoff film, “El Muerto,” from its release date schedule.
Sony and Marvel were originally hoping to go into full production in October, but ongoing issues have led the studios to pull it from the overall schedule, according to Deadline. Sources appear to suggest that Bad Bunny’s tour schedule and the ongoing Writers Guild of America strike have combined to make a finalized release date pretty complicated.
Fans will have to wait — potentially indefinitely — for the Bad Bunny flick. Initial reports suggest that the singer is taking on the lead role as the antihero of the saga. His character inherits his power from his father, a luchador.
