Machete could be the next Rambo, according to the film's co-director Ethan Maniquis.

"I think so," the filmmaker revealed at a special screening of the Robert Rodriguez movie in Los Angeles.

"I could see him kicking a** for many years to come!" Ethan said of Machete, played by tough guy character actor Danny Trejo.

"I always think that he's a Mexican Dirty Harry," he explained.

The film is based on a fake trailer Rodriguez directed for his 2007 movie Grindhouse.

Danny said he was so happy to see the movie put into production.

"I'm so glad we did it, I'm the first Latino superhero and that's kind of cool," he said.

"I was in London and there were guys that had that picture [from the trailer] tattooed on their back, so I was like, 'Wow, there are some fans'," he laughed.

When it comes to turning Machete into a franchise, Danny joked he could easily beat The Terminator or Rambo. "Those guys are wusses!" he laughed, flexing his muscles.
