HBO Max and Warner Bros. Animation have announced voice cast details for the streaming service’s upcoming Batman Azteca: Choque De Imperios (Aztec Batman: Clash of Empires) animated feature. Warner Bros. Animation first released details on Batman Azteca: Choque De Imperios in June 2022, stating the HBO Max movie will be produced entirely in Mexico and showcase local talent and the region’s ancient culture.
Batman Azteca: Choque De Imperios brings to life an original story featuring the first Mexican version of the Dark Knight set against the backdrop of the history of Mexico and the culture of Mesoamerica. The upcoming Warner Bros. Animation will be led by Horacio García Rojas (Diablero) as Yohualli (Batman/Bruce Wayne), Omar Chaparro (No Manches Frida films) as Yoka (The Joker) and Álvaro Morte as Hernán Cortés (Two-Face).
The tale centers on a young Aztec boy, Yohualli Coatl, whose father, village leader Toltecatzin, is murdered by Spanish Conquistadors. Coatl flees to Tenochtitlan to warn King Moctezuma and his high priest, Yoka, of looming 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.
Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, Anima and Chatrone, Batman Azteca: Choque De Imperios is a Particular Crowd film and based on characters from DC. Juan Meza-León (Harley Quinn) serves as director, and José C. García de Letona, Aaron D. Berger, Carina Schulze and Fernando De Fuentes as producers of the film. Sam Register and Tomás Yankelevich serve as Executive Producer.
Additionally, Alejandro Díaz Barriga, an expert on Mesoamerican studies and the ethnic history of Mexico and the Andean region, is working closely with the Batman Azteca: Choque De Imperios creative team to ensure the indigenous representation portrayed in the film is appropriate and relevant.
