It’s been about 24 years since The Mask of Zorro, starring Antonio Banderas, was launched. And everyone knows what meaning, proper? Reboot/remake time! Nostalgia is a scorching commodity as of late, and Zorro is in the marketplace.
But in the event that they have been to remake The Mask of Zorro, who would play the masked man? I imply, it could possibly be Antonio Banderas. After all, Harrison Ford is donning the Indiana Jones hat as soon as once more on the age of 80, so what’s stopping the 62-year-old Banderas?
While that is all a hypothetical dialog, Banderas has chimed in on who he wish to proceed the Zorro legacy.
Antonio Banderas has somebody in thoughts to be the subsequent Zorro
Speaking to ComicBook.com, Banderas revealed that he’d like his Uncharted costar Tom Holland to don the masks. “[H]e’s so energetic and fun, and he’s got this spark, too. Why not?”
I imply, yeah, why not?!
We know Holland can deal with all of the acrobatics wanted to play Zorro. I’m simply undecided if he’s bought the character for it, however he can in all probability pull it off with some observe and steering from Banderas.
But if Holland (or anybody else) performed Zorro for a brand new era, would Banderas need to be round to move the baton? “Yes, I would. I would consider that possibility. Why not?” Banderas stated. “I think during today’s interviews I said something like that to somebody… I said that if they call it Zorro, I will do what Anthony Hopkins did in the first movie and so give the torch to somebody else.”
Currently, Disney+ is engaged on a Zorro collection with Wilmer Valderrama, though that’s not essentially a continuation of the Antonio Banderas motion pictures. There’s additionally a CW Zorro present with a gender-swapped model of the character within the works.
So, whereas we wait for somebody to take motion on Antonio Banderas’ concept, we are able to catch him in Indiana Jones 5 alongside Harrison Ford subsequent yr.
