It was recently revealed that the Marvel character known as Tombstone is currently set to be in Sony’s live-action Spider-Man Universe movie El Muerto. However, Tombstone won’t be the only new Spidey villain to enter the live-action realm.
El Muerto is a movie that will focus on a Luchador aka Mexican Wrestler called Juan Carlos Estrada Sanchez gaining abilities thanks to a magic Luchador mask.
Its initial release date was scheduled for January of next year but has been put on ice due to multiple speculated reasons. One being the ongoing writers’ strike and another being the titular actor Bad Bunny having a complicated schedule.
El Muerto Set To Introduce New Spidey Villain
According to a recently shared Daniel RPK rumour via The DisInsider. Tombstone won’t be the only new Spidey villain to be brought to the live-action world.
None other than Marvel’s Joseph Lorenzini aka Hammerhead is set to be introduced in Sony’s live-action Spider-Man Universe. At least he was before El Muerto was put on hold indefinitely due to the reasons mentioned above.
It’s currently unclear if Marvel’s Hammerhead or Tombstone are expected to appear in any other Sony SSU projects at this time.
The two iconic Spidey villains could perhaps be planned to appear in any of the other Sony Spider-Man Universe titles currently in the works. Kraven the Hunter is the next in line to release and could potentially introduce either character.
Even if El Muerto and Kraven the Hunter aren’t in the same universe. It’s still feasible for variants played by the same actors to be introduced. What Sony’s SSU and Marvel’s MCU have proved these past few years is that anything is possible.
Will Hammerhead Appear In Tom Holland’s Universe?
One question that will most likely be asked from this is whether or not Hammerhead is also planned to be introduced in Tom Holland’s Spider-Man Universe.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe aka MCU has yet to introduce Hammerhead into its large array of already-established live-action Spidey villains.
Sony and Marvel Studios have worked together for years and officially combined their two (well three) universes in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Then again when Michael Keaton’s Vulture from the MCU appeared in Morbius‘ confusing cliffhanger.
Whether or not the two plan on collaborating on-screen again in the future is currently unclear as no official announcement has been made as of yet. However, it is highly likely that there is a bigger plan that has slowly been unfolding over time.
El Muerto currently has no scheduled release date.
