‘Batman Azteca’ Announced For HBO Max Latin America

A new Batman animated movie is announced for HBO Max Latin America but it won’t be Bruce Wayne.

Announced at today’s Guadalajara International Film Festival, Batman Azteca: Choque De Imperios (Aztec Batman: Clash of Empires) will be set at the time of the Aztec Empire.

Here is the description:

In the time of the Aztec Empire, Yohualli Coatl – a young Aztec boy  – experiences tragedy when his father and village leader, Toltecatzin, is murdered by Spanish Conquistadors. Yohualli escapes to Tenochtitlan to warn King Moctezuma and his high priest, Yoka, of imminent danger.  Using the temple of Tzinacan, the bat god, as a lair, Yohualli trains with his mentor and assistant, Acatzin, developing equipment and weaponry to confront the Spaniard invasion, protect Moctezuma’s temple, and avenge his father’s death.

Juan Meza-León who directed episodes of Harley Quinn is the director, with José C. García de Letona, Aaron D. Berger, Carina Schulze and Fernando De Fuentes serving as producers of the film “which will be produced entirely in Mexico featuring local talent and will showcase the region’s abundant art.” Sam Register and Tomás Yankelevich serve as executive producers.

Deadline also adds that Alejandro Díaz Barriga will serve as a “consultant specializing in Mesoamerican studies and ethnic history of Mexico and the Andean region,” and will “work with the creative team to ensure that the indigenous representation portrayed in the film is appropriate and relevant.”
