6 Latino Superheroes To Appear in Marvel & DC
Theres been some developments in the casting of Marvel and DC's superhero projects. Most notably with Latinx representation. Whilst Honest Trailers jokes how Michael Pena character Luis in Antman is the only Latino in the MCU films. There has been some push for more Latino representation in the Super hero genre and it seems like we are getting it.
Prior to 2020 we had a Ghostrider series in the works for Hulu with Gabriel Luna set to reprise his role as Robbie Reyes aka Ghostrider from Agents of Shield. But unfortunately the series was cancelled.
On the DC side of things HBO had some test photos for a Blue Beetle series with Jaime Reyes as the lead. Many fans have expressed interest in seeing Xolo Mariduena portray the lead character.
HBO has also announced their Green Lantern cast to include Alan Scott, Guy Gardner, Simon Baz and also Latina green lantern Jessica Cruz. Whilst there is no confirmed casting for the series as of yet, we've had our say on who we would back for Guy Gardner and Simon Baz. But for Jessica Cruz, here at theCSnetwork we would be more than happy to see our own Andrea Martinez (Claudia from Corner Shop Show) get a chance to play the role of Jessica Cruz (Totally not bias here).
Back at Marvel, it seem we are getting some Latinos. Theres rumour that the Hawkeye series is looking for a Latina, Native American or First Nation actress possible for the role of Maya Lopez aka Echo so we have that to look forward to.
Falcon and The Winter soldier has also confirmed the casting of Danny Ramirez in the series, Whilst it is unknown as to what his role maybe in the series, However many fans have noted that Wyatt Russel will be portraying John Walker aka the USAgent as a Captain America replacement. Fans believe that Danny Ramirez will play Joaquin Torres aka the Falcon II. Its likely that if the US government are trying to make a replacement Captain America, then they maybe trying to replace Sam Wilson Falcon for a younger man. Danny Ramirez was a community working for the Mexican Americans of Arizona before being experimented on by Karl Malus (remember him from Jessica Jones season 2?) to end up with Bird/Vampire like powers. It is unknown if this will be the case here. But it will be interesting to see.
Doctor Strange Multiverse of Madness has fans expecting a whole load of Crossover events such as incorporation Sony's Spiderverse into the MCU to introduce Tom Hardy's Eddie Brock to Fox's X-Men universe to Toby Maguire and Andrew Garfield's Spidermen teaming up with Tom Hollands version. Casting wise, Xochitl Gomez has been cast in an undisclosed role in the film. Many fans have immediately jumped the gun over the idea that she will be portraying America Chavez aka Miss America. Other possibilities point to her potentially portraying Clea, Adria or even Lilith if we were to look into Dr Strange related characters.
