It’s taken roughly a couple of years to make happen, but now it’s finally a reality with a future certain enough that it garners a series. I speak of director Riccardo Gabrielli R.’s latest treatment of author and creator Nicolas Rodriguez’s digital comic franchise, Zambo Dende, a welcoming opportunity for film studios to venture into Latino superhero property beyond less obscure figures like Zorro or Miles Morales’s Spider-Man, or that of Marvel and DC.
Martial arts action star Marko Zaror takes off in the title role with a story that sets him off into a journey of vigilantism and justice throughout 17th century Latin America against evil barons, warmongers and oppressors alike. A shortfilm was initially shot over in Bogota, Colombia and a date hasn’t been set just yet for its release, but we finally have trailer that presents it accordindly, and much to our liking, with a prime cast of heavy hitters that action fans may know and love, including the late Darren Shahlavi.
Watch the trailer now and look out for more information as the wheels begin to turn.
