Filmmaker Robert Rodriguez has always been quite the fanboy himself, and as such, there has always been a real thin line between a lot of his films. Movies like Desperado, Machete, and Spy Kids may have differed greatly in overall audience, but that hasn’t stopped from at least hinting at a bit of a shared world between them all.
Perhaps most notably, it’s been hinted at that the uncle to the kids in Spy Kids is none other than the titular Machete. But are these connections something that will only live on in fan imaginations? Rodriguez recently had a chat with CinemaBlend, and when asked about this, he turned his attention to another medium where this blending could potentially happening.
“I have [thought about that] very many times for different mediums. Yeah, for sure. You may see something soon! I’ve definitely been aware of the connections all the characters could have in that world, in their own range of kind of larger than life superheroes. I definitely have been looking at it in the comic world. There was a comic company that wanted to do something with me, and I suggested that very thing, and they love that idea.”
Why not throw in From Dusk Till Dawn while we’re at it. If there was some master comic book crossover between these worlds, I’d be on that in an instant. But, of course, that all depends on whether or not this actually happens. I’m a huge fan of Robert Rodriguez, but following his work on Planet Terror, I did feel like he was starting to pile on more projects than can possibly all be done.
Fingers crossed that they get someone who knows these properties and can make this happen. Would you want to see these films come together in comic form? Let us know your thoughts down below!
