During an interview, the 22-year-old actor was asked about how people will be able to relate to his character in the upcoming movie. The Coba Kai actor explained what makes his movie Blue Beetle a movie for everybody. While talking about his movie, the actor said,

“ I am like everybody. Xolo is like everybody. I’m as special as all of you. I’m no less than everybody. My culture is not a buzzword. We exist and we co-exist. Being able to integrate those things that make us special adds flavor. It’s like laughter. People laugh differently, yet it’s still laughter. We grieve differently, we cry and we deal with loss differently, but it’s still a loss. 

He further added,

It’s always nice to see something that we’re used to seeing with other superheroes that we love and we cherish, but we see it our way and we invite the audience to not feel repelled by it.”
