The fans of the comics (and of the cinema in general) put the cry in the sky when it was announced that Bad Bunny will be The dead, one of the new Marvel characters that will hit the movies. The rapper was not very well received as the protagonist of the film; The teasing was immediate, but Sony executives have confidence in him, so much so that they see him as a future great star in superhero movies. Hold on, Robert Downey Jr., because your replacement has arrived!
The most confident is nothing more and nothing less than the CEO from Sony Pictures, Tony Vinciquerra. In a short interview for The Hollywood Reporter, the executive talked about the “bad rabbit” and Aaron Taylor-Johnson. Both will star in very important projects for the company (via):
“We are very excited to have them both, Bad Bunny is going to become a huge Marvel star and Aaron Taylor is now working on Kraven, then HE IS Kraven. We are fascinated by it and we hope that Bullet Train really catapults their careers.”
Bad Bunny and Taylor-Johnson will hit theaters this weekend with Bullet train. The film starring Brad Pitt will be a litmus test to find out if viewers are willing to give the successful singer another chance or continue the hate. So far, the first reviews are not very promising for true fans.

It’s not about being the first Latino to play a role, it’s about being the first Latino to star, that’s what’s important. It’s really big and it’s going to be epic. I know people will be proud of my work.”
