We Can Be Heroes Cast & Character Guide | Pretty Reel

Robert Rodriguez’s We Can Be Heroes has a spectacular cast led by Yaya Gosselin and Hollywood darling Pedro Pascal. Released in December 2020, We Can Be Heroes parodies the modern superhero genre and combines it with family drama. Various talented veterans and new faces make up the cast of We Can Be Heroes, which follows the narrative established in Robert Rodriguez’s 2005 fantasy The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3-D.

Among these children is Guppy, the daughter of Sharkboy and Lavagirl, who has both shark and lava powers.
