New reports claim that one of Sony's Spider-Man Universe films was scrubbed from its studio slate.
However, new claims suggest one of those spin-offs has been removed from Sony's spin-off schedule.
El Muerto Spider-Man Film Is TBA?
Sony Pictures' El Muerto starring Bad Bunny was removed from the studio's release calendar.
The live-action spin-off was set to feature Bad Bunny as Juan-Carlos Sanchez, a super-powered wrestler with a brief comic book history.
According to Deadline, the reason for the delay has been attributed to the ongoing Writer's Guild of America strike as well as Bad Bunny's touring schedule.
Sony's Kraven and Madame Web are still slated to release on October 6 and February 16, 2024, respectively.
Is Sony Rethinking Its Spider-Man Strategy?
However, Sony removing the spin-off from its slate begs the question of whether the studio is having second thoughts.
In contrast, Sony Animation has enjoyed huge success and acclaim for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and the recently released Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.
While only time will tell if El Muerto ever makes it back on Sony's schedule, the decision suggests the studio may be rethinking its Spider-Man strategy.
