Cobra Kai is a series that takes place decades after the events of the Karate Kid films, with William Zabka reprising his role as Johnny Lawrence and Ralph Macchio as Daniel LaRusso. Griffin Santopietro played Daniel’s son, Anthony LaRusso, and he has been in the show since the first season. With the fourth season coming up at the end of December on Netflix, the actor revealed that he will have more time to shine.

“I am so excited for season 4,” Santopietro tells Nerd Reactor. “Fans can expect to see a lot more Anthony this season and I’m so happy that I was able to have great scenes with Ralph (some great father-son stuff).”

The road seems to be headed to Daniel’s Miyagi-Do Karate and Johnny’s Eagle Fang teaming up in the fourth season against Cobra Kai, which is now being led by John Kreese (Martin Kove).

“I am so ready to see a team-up between Daniel and Johnny, but I’m even more excited to see them butt heads,” the actor said.

Although Santopietro couldn’t reveal much about whether fans will get to see him joining the battle and/or learning the ways of Miyagi-Do Karate, he did tease that his character will be different.

“I can’t say much, but you’ll definitely get to see Anthony change a lot,” he revealed.

Comic book movies and TV shows are very popular with no signs of slowing down. Santopietro’s interests include reading comic books, and he revealed which DC and Marvel characters he would like to play.

“I’ve always wanted to be asked this question (I’m a huge comic book reader), so I’m going to separate it between DC and Marvel,” he said. “DC: My top choice is Batman, but since I’m 15, I would like to play any of the Robins (not Damian Wayne though), or either of the two super boys. Marvel: My top choice is for sure Spider-Man, but since we already have three of those I also think Wiccan could be fun to play, maybe Kid Loki as well.”
