HBO Max is preparing an Aztec Batman movie
An all-new Batman is coming to HBO Max: Aztec Batman.
The streaming service announced at the Guadalajara International Film Festival that it is producing a new animated feature called Batman Azteca: Clash of Imperioswhich translates to Aztec Batman: Clash of Empires. The film is being developed in partnership with Mexican animation studio ÁNiMA.
Here’s the plot of the movie, which gives a little backstory on exactly who Aztec Batman is…
During the time of the Aztec Empire, Yohualli Coatl – a young Aztec boy – experiences tragedy when his father and village chief, Toltecatzin, is assassinated by Spanish conquistadors. Yohualli escapes to Tenochtitlan to warn King Moctezuma and his high priest, Yoka, of impending danger. Using the Temple of Tzinacan, the Bat God, as a lair, Yohualli trains with his mentor and assistant, Acatzin, developing equipment and weapons to face the Spanish invasion, protect Moctezuma’s temple, and avenge the death of his father.
Of course, it looks like an Aztec version of Batman.
After the DC Universe streaming service shut down, HBO Max became the primary streaming home for DC Comics movies and shows. Right now they have literally dozens of Batman titles available to stream, big budget movies like The black Knight on family grounds such as LEGO Justice League to a host of other direct-to-video animated films. (The ones where Adam West and Burt Ward reprise their roles as Batman and Robin from the old 1960s TV series are seriously entertaining.)
HBO Max is also producing live action bat girl movie (which will also feature Michael Keaton’s Batman returning from Tim Burton’s 90s films and his upcoming appearance in the flash) as well as several spin-off television series from the recent film The Batman. Aztec Batman should therefore fit perfectly.
