Bruce Wayner as Yohualli Coatl
Horacio García Rojas, Mexican actor and producer, known for his participation in Narcos: Mexico, will play the bat of the night: Batman and, of course, Bruce Wayne, who in this story will be known as Yohualli Coatl.
Born into royal privilege and the Aztec priesthood, young Yohualli Coatl has experienced few hardships in his life apart from the recent death of his mother. But when his father, the Toltecatzin chief, is murdered in cold blood by the Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortés, young Yohu’s life falls apart around him.
Yohualli seems to be a helpless boy. However, his alter-ego, The Batman, is not. Upon stumbling upon a forgotten temple of Titicatzin (the bat god of the Aztecs), Yohu is inspired to create a masked hero to protect the town from him, avenge his father, and stop Cortés from destroying Tenochtitlan.
“Knowing that girls and boys with brown skin like me can see themselves in a hero who shares the same features, who carries on his skin the history of a past that is still alive, a hero who fights for his own, full of emotion. As a kid I would have loved to feel represented; that didn’t happen, but today things are changing and my geek heart appreciates it. The child that still lives in me smiles at the thought that: ‘I am Batman’”; Horacio Garcia Rojas said.
Joker will be Yoka
In turn, Omar Chaparro, Mexican actor and comedian (No Manches Frida y Compadres) will be identified by the public as Joker, who in this version will be called Yoka.
He is a strict and conservative priest, who believes in the ancient prophecies of the return of the gods. When Yoka asks the god Huitzilopochtli for advice, the deity answers him! But is it a vision? Or the delirium of a madman? Giving Huitzilopochtli the human sacrifices he demands destroys the priest’s sanity. And in his madness, Yoka decides that it’s all a joke, and he… the Joker!
“I am very happy to be part of this film and to tell this original story that is steeped in the rich history of Mexico. I’ve always loved the Joker and I didn’t want to pass up the chance to play such an iconic villain. It is an honor to be a part of this film with such a creative and daring director and writer. We are creating something risky and beautiful at the same time,” said Omar Chaparro.
Hernán Cortés will remember Two Face
For his part, the renowned Spanish actor Álvaro Morte will play the fearsome conqueror Hernán Cortés (who emulates Two Face) in this story, which will come to HBO Max.
Drawn to the new world by his dreams of gold and conquest, Cortés is as cunning as he is bloodthirsty. The crazed Spaniard murders Yohu’s father and, using an ancient Aztec prophecy, tricks the Aztec emperor Moctezuma into believing that his presence is the will of the gods. Wounded in battle, Cortes loses half of his face, his exterior now matching the monstrosity of his soul. He looks like he’s destined to become the insane tyrant who rules Montezuma’s empire, but there’s only one thing standing in his way… Batman the Aztec!
