Angel Locsin says she is just happy that designer Leinil Yu’s replied to her.
Marvel recently showed the image of Wave, a Filipino superhero, and the co-creator of the heroine thought that Angel Locsin would be best to portray the role.
When Wave was introduced to the public, the The General’s Daughter star expressed her admiration to the character and tweeted, “I'm excited to learn more about this character! I [love] that her weapon of choice is a Kampilan, which is believed to be the sword Lapu-Lapu used to strike down Ferdinand Magellan. So, [thumbs up] for that! Regarding her costume, I wonder what’s the inspiration behind the design?”
Designer Leinil Yu, who collaborated with Marvel’s Greg Pak replied and said, “It’s a collaboration of ideas between me, greg and Marvel editorial. Would love to see you as Wave, Angel!”
The actress was flattered with the reply that she even reposted the conversation on her Instagram story.
“Can’t stop smiling. Thank you, Sir @leinilyu for the wonderful reply,” she wrote.
When one netizen said that she would love to see Angel as Wave too, she said, “Tapos na ako sa superhero roles hehehe. But kilig na nagreply ang creator.”
Angel is no stranger when it comes to portraying superhero roles since she was once cast as Darna. However, she had to back out in the new movie version of Darna because of health reasons.
When another netizen suggested that she might consider taking the role of real-life Filipina hero Gabriela Silang if given the chance to have a biopic for her, she said it is her “dream role.”
