Blue Beetle star Xolo Mariduena Honored at the SAAHJ 25th Annual Scholarship Gala
In a little under two weeks, the next big, superhero film, Bluebeetle hits theaters around the world. It’s leading star Xolo Maridueña is notch part of the promotional campaign as he is striking in solidarity with these screen actors Guild, but that doesn’t mean his contributions to TV and film can’t still be celebrated.
Xolo was in San Antonio, TX at the SAAHJ Annual Scholarship Gala, and was honored with the Estrella de Esperanza Award. This award is meant to celebrate rising stars from the Latino community and there’s no doubt that he has seen much success and yet he is just getting started.
Xolo spoke highly of his mother and imagined the struggles and challenges. She may have faced in an industry that was underrepresenting Latinos at the time. His energy is infectious. When he wasn’t on stage, giving his award speech, he was taking the time to meet with attendees, taking selfies, or making calls to relatives for those who are in attendance.
Earlier in the event, he took the time to answer questions from the local press and spoke of the shifting environment in which we are seeing for the first time Latinos in lead roles in mainstream media, on a somewhat consistent basis, it’s an exciting time. He’s also discussed what it means to him personally seeing projects led by Latino writers and directors, and how having a crew with a large population of Latinos can help bring a level of authenticity to projects involving Latino stories.
One thing is clear, the future for Xolo is bright and his upcoming superhero blockbuster will have a major lasting impact on the Latino community. Go see Blue Beetle which is now in theaters everywhere. Hear our thoughts on it below.
Superhero Comic-Con has begun!
Andrew Garfield Announced for the Superhero Comic-Con & Car Show!
The Superhero Comic-Con and Car Show has done it! Founder Bob Wills and team promised an even larger event from last year and they have delivered. Announced today is the Amazing Spider-Man himself, Peter #3 (LOL), Andrew Garfield!
His most recent comeback as Peter Parker in the No Way Home film was nothing short of glorious. Fans from around the world rejoiced when he first walked through the wizard portal and those same fans were moved to tears when he felt redeemed saving a falling MJ (Zendaya) during the final battle. He was given sufficient material and screen time to work with and we are all so grateful for it. His rare appearance at this event will allow fans to show their appreciation.
Andrew will be in attendance Saturday, July 8th, and Sunday, July 9th and will be available for photo ops ($210 each) and autographs ($230 each-maximum of two) on both days. You can purchase those starting on Wednesday, May 24th at 10:00am CST at www.PMXEvents.com.
