Is Madmartigen part of the Willow Series?

While Val Kilmer was unable to return to play Madmartigen, Bryk and Cruz both capture the star’s essence playing his twin children. Recently, the duo had a conversation with ComicBook. com‘s Chris Killian, and he asked if there was anything about Kilmer’s performance in the original film that they were trying to “cling onto” to “make it feel more believable” that they were Madmartigan’s children.

“Yes, absolutely,” Bryk replied. “Sure,” Cruz agreed. “Yeah, I think having access to that character was so helpful because we could kind of imagine or imagine, we didn’t have to imagine who he was, but then we could imagine what he was like as a parent , which was a lot of fun… Which we’d admire, which we’d reject, and I mean… I don’t know how much we can spoil.” Cruz then whispered something to Bryk and he replied, “Yeah, I think that’s probably fine.” Cruz continued, “Yeah, and the absence of him was really interesting and sort of allowed our characters — I don’t want to spoil, really.” Bryk added: “It’s also, you see their energy and that’s your parent, so you let it seep in a little bit subconsciously. I think the most conscious way… I know for me personally there are certain action moves or sword moves those were almost exact parallels. Little Easter eggs that I wonder if people will pick them up.”
