Antonio Banderas, 62, has plenty of iconic roles under his belt, from his Goya-winning performance in Pain and Glory to his portrayal of Pablo Picasso in the anthology series Genius. But perhaps his most notable is that of Zorro (aka Alejandro Murrieta), the masked vigilante who Banderas played in The Mask of Zorro (1998) and The Legend of Zorro (2005). But now, Banderas is ready to pass on the role, and he's got a famous action star in mind: Tom Holland.
The Evita actor showed his interest in Holland taking over the part as he chatted with Comicbook.com. Before Banderas, the role was filled by Anthony Hopkins, who, at the beginning of The Mask of Zorro, passes on the responsibilities to Banderas (metaphorically and literally).
When asked if he would return for a future Zorro movie, Banderas said, “Yes, I would, I would consider that possibility. Why not? Yeah, I think today, I said something like that to somebody. They asked me about Zorro. If they called me to do Zorro, I would do what Anthony Hopkins did for me, which is to pass the torch.”
