El Chicano – Official Trailer

I genuinely like the idea behind this trailer (it’s essentially the Punisher mixed with Batman). That being said, El Chicano!?

That’s a wee bit on the nose, isn’t it?

Latin peoples have a rich history, with all sorts of interesting, colorful characters, yet the filmmakers somehow settled on “El Chicano!?”

It somewhat reminds me of when you have an African-American character called Black something or other.

This is typically an indicator that anyone but a Latin person actually came up with the name besides being terribly lazy.

For instance, what the hell is “Black Lightning” or “Black Goliath!?” Is there a “White Lightning” or “White Goliath” running about?

It’s just dopey.
