Give Me Ramirez!

  Apparently they’re doing a Highlander reboot with Henry Cavill. You know what I’d rather see instead? A prequel series (either live action films or an anime) following an appropriately cast Ramirez.  Imagine: 896 Egypt, Tak-Ne learns he’s immortal. Quickenings amongst the pyramids. Then sword battles across the ancient world. Marrying a beautiful princess in ancient Japan. Battling The Kurgan along the Russian steppes. Taking the name Juan Sánchez-Villalobos Ramírez when he joins the court of King Charles V just before he sets out for the Highlands, chasing rumors of the Kurgan. You’ve got plenty of coolness right there without rebooting anything. And casting it appropriately would be a great way to course correct.
