Please, no!

The novel covers Diego's childhood to when he becomes Zorro which is still a pretty young age, Clooney is to old.
In the established canon of the novel Diego's Father is Spanish & Diego's mother is half Native American half Spanish, Clooney as a product of this union is completely wrong!
They should really cast somebody much younger and actually Hispanic/Latino.

So if you still want to imagine this new movie's "continuity" as a prequel to The Mask of Zorro, I doubt there will be much conflict.
Unless there is some glaring difference in this new movie thats what I plan to do.

Mask really could be tied to almost any past screen incarnation of Zorro. From the Williams series to the Regehr series to the various films.

Poll:
What do people prefer, Zorro (Diego De La Vega) with....

Mustache? or No mustache?

Some of the most prominent Zorro's :

1919- Johnston McCulley's original magazine serial (Mask covers face, although he later adopts the Fairbanks visual model)
1920- Douglas Fairbainks (The Mark of Zorro) - used and introduced the half-mask and Zorro with Mustache(although it came off as Diego)
1939- Reed Hadley (Zorro's Fighting Legion) - Mustache
1940- Tyrone Power (Re-The Mark of Zorro) - Mustache
1957- Guy Williams (Disney TV Series & Movies)- Mustache (probably the longest running and most iconic image of Zorro)
1960- Dell/Gold Key Comics Zorro series (spun off Disney) - Mustache
1974- Frank Langella (TV movie) - No Mustache
1975- Alain Delon (Movie) - No Mustache
1981- The New Adventures of Zorro (1981 Filmation animated series) - Mustache
1981- George Hamilton(movie parody)- Mustache(long lost gay/colorful English brother Bunny Wigglesworth who momentarily replaces him-Mustache)
1990- Duncan Regehr (television series) - Mustache
1990- Zorro Marvel Comics - Mustache
1993- Zorro Topps Comics - Mustache
1996- Kaiketsu Zorro (Japanese anime) - No Mustache
1997- The (new) New Adventures of Zorro (WB animated series) - Mustache
1998- Anthony Hopkins Mask of Zorro) - Mustache
1998- Antonio Banderas(Mask of Zorro)- No Mustache(Included although he didn't play Diego, he's obviously made an iconic image of the character)
2001- Zorro Daily Newspaper Comic Strip -Mustache
2005- Antonio Banderas(Legend of Zorro) - No Mustache
2005- Zorro a Novel by Isabel Allende (basses for new announced movie reboot) - Mustache
2007- Christian Meier (Zorro: La Espada y la Rosa telenovela (based loosely on Allende Novel) - Mustache
2008- Dynamite Comics written by Matt Wagner (origin based loosely on Allende Novel) - No Mustache (Why Wagner, why?)
2008- Moonstone Tales of Zorro illustrated anthologies depict Zorro with - Mustache


Intentionally Left off several of the B-Serials, Mexican and Italian versions (to many to list) , which mostly featured supposed descendants, contemporary interpretations, , or completely different interpretations of the character often not even Diego De LA Vega.


For me personally, seeing Zorro without a mustache is like seeing a fox without a tail, It just looks so wrong!.

Filmation's The New Adventures of Zorro remains my favorite animated version of the character(the only animated series Filmation had animated overseas):

Well, he's always had a bandana for a mask, but I don't see why they wouldn't have him wear his hat. That's almost like having The Lone Ranger or The Shadow without their hats. That's like 50% of their visual charm.

Well, he's always had a bandana for a mask, .
Agreed, the bandana has for the most part always been a part of his mask, either separate or one solid piece, long before Ironfist.
And it's remained mostly consistent in movies and illustrations, varying some on how much it covers the nose.

As far as the hat, again I agree with rogue trooper, it's an iconic part of the character, an unmistakable silhouette. He doesn't always wear it as seen in the pics. above, and I admit he also looks badass without it, but why would they abandon it?
Why would they have to chose one or the other? When he has both the bandanna style mask, and the hat.

I liked that cartoon, and that whole block of Filmation adventure shows - Tarzan, Lone Ranger, Flash Gordon & Zorro.

Although the animation was still typically shoddy, repetitive (reused scenes) and the action obviously tame by today's standards, (american TV animation was notorious for having to be brought in at near zero budget which was doom for more action oriented shows.
And the Censors were notorious for disallowing violence, especially on the more "realistic" shows or even any perceived intent of violence, or the creation of to much "tension" or "anticipation" in the story, because we all know how bad that is for kids.
Plus everything had to have an obvious heavy handed (subtle as a hammer) "message" or pun at the end, or it had no "value".

Anyway, (rant aside) the show did what it could with what they allowed, and they pulled it off pretty well.
There were two secondary characters made up for the show I remember really liking. One was a recurring potential romantic interest and rival - Lucia the renagade Pirate (kind of to Zorro what Catwoman was to Batman)

The other was an all dressed in white opposite phantom type "Zorro" even the horse was white, who was hired by Ramon to befriend and betray Zorro, who in the end, ends up instead allying himself with him.

I didn't catch a lot of these, but one fun episodes I did see was with some eccentric inventor Doctor Henry Wayne (played by Adam West) who is hired by the Commandante to set a trap for Zorro.

Instead Zorro befriends the inventor and whisks him away on his quick black mode of transportation, that takes him to his secret lair & his secret laboratory, under the mansion.

Dr. Wayne (Adam West) is impressed, and the unspoken implication is he'll pass down Zorro's caped crusader crime fighting technique to his descendants.

Found it in Spanish, even if you never seen it and don't speak the language you can still tell what's going on in this clip. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZKfVSVHH37s&feature=player_detailpage#t=48 8s

Dr. Wayne (Batman's great ancestor) discovers the idea of the secret cave lair.

Sounds like tentative titles could be :

Zorro
The Legend Begins


The Forging of
Zorro


Zorro Begins



-Zorro the Legend Begins sounds fine, although all they really need is Zorro.
-The Forging Of sounds like they'll really focus on the blade aspect, which is great if they follow La Justicia and elements of the Mysterious Circle/La Verdadera Destreza etc. which would be great.
-Zorro Begins is really lame and sounds like a desperate attempt to mooch in on the Bat franchise, when they really don't need to.

Ditto. It really was a lot of fun and I remember the Family channel used to show it back to back with Batman. Plus the second actor to play Zorros dad (Henry Darrow?) was a past Zorro himself!

Yes that's Batman in the Lair of the Fox!
Ah..I remember watching that episode when it aired. It was amusing to see West in Zorro's cave lair. Plus is pretty cool in a way that they did this episode since Zorro was one of the many inspirations for Batman.

Efram Zimblist Jr played Diego's father in the first season and he went on to voice Alfred in Batman TAS.

The Family Channel series is underrated. it was simple but a lot of fun. Especially when I was young.

Way off topic, but besides the Elder Dr. Wayne having supposedly visited Zorro's lair, another fun connect is in some flashbacks of the comics they have Dr. Wayne Senior actually having dressed up as Zorro too...
