Official Announcement of Choque De Imperios
Last week we saw the announcement of a Joker sequel, titled Madness for Two, and it sounds pretty interesting to say the least. Given how successful the first film was at the box office, it was only a matter of time before we saw it get a follow-up, but I’m not sure anyone expected it to be A ), star Lady Gaga or B ), to be a musical. According to a report, however, both of these things could well happen.
Well if Joker: The Musical isn’t exactly your bag, maybe it will be instead. As reported by ComicBook and Variety, a brand new animated Batman movie has just been announced, and it’s unlike anything the series has seen before.
Before we get to the nitty-gritty, be sure to check out this Batman cosplayer’s hilarious escapades (can we get a full movie on that too, please?)
To encounter Batman Azteca: Clash of Impérios (Aztec Batman: Clash of Empires, according to Google Translate), a new feature headed to HBO Max Latin America. The Spanish-language film is expected to bring Batman into the Aztec culture of Mexico and Mesoamerica, and will be produced in Mexico with local distribution.
Batman himself won’t be the Bruce Wayne we already know and love, but Yohualli Coatl, an Aztec boy whose father is killed by the Spanish conquistadors: “Using the temple of Tzinacan, the bat god, as his lair , Yohualli trains with his mentor and assistant, Acatzin, developing equipment and weapons to face off against the Spanish invasion, protect Moctezuma’s temple, and avenge the death of his father,” reads the synopsis (via ComicBook) .
The producers of the film are José C. García de Letona and Fernando De Fuentes, as well as Aaron D. Berger and Carina Schulze. Director and screenwriter Juan Meza-León shared his excitement for the project on Instagram: “It’s finally out! Very excited and honored to be a part of this,” he wrote (translated by Google). “Everyone in the production is a fan of Batman, so we hope you’re as excited as we are! An original story that fuses an alternate version of the Conquest, with the fictional characters of Gotham City. They imagine…? You will see!”
There is currently no release date for Batman Azteca: Clash of Impériosso we’ll just have to watch this space for more news – it looks really super intriguing.
