Benicio Del Toro: 'Che Guevara Was A Warrior, Like Batman'

Benicio Del ToroOscar winner Benicio Del Toro has become such a big fan of Ernesto 'Che' Guevara after playing the revolutionary in director Steven Soderbergh's four-hour epic; he's eager to defend the leader from his critics.

The Traffic star spent months reading up on Guevara and is now convinced Che was "a warrior" with a very bad reputation. He says, "I remember Che being included in a TV show that showed pictures of terrorists. I was like, 'Why isn't (President Richard) Nixon there for the Vietnam war?' You'd have to put a lot of pictures of other people there before you'd put Che's."

Del Toro tells Latina magazine he thinks the revolutionary was just like Batman: "We tell stories about Batman, and he was a type of Batman. No one can deny that he was trying to stop man exploiting man. Whether he was successful or not... Two people who I met learned how to read and write because of him. It was really moving... The most revealing thing was that he (Guevara) was a human being."
