You’ll recall that the co-creator and designer of Marvel’s new Filipina superhero, Wave, recently started a conversation about Angel Locsin hypothetically playing the character. Leinil Yu said he “would love to see” the actress play the character, but Angel politely tweeted that her superhero days are behind her.
While all this is a bit early since the character is just about to be introduced in the comic book War of the Realms: New Agents of Atlas #1 in May, it’s worth noting that Pia does have some superhero cred. She previously played Kweenie a.k.a. superhero Cassandra Stockings in the movie Gandarrapiddo! The Revenger Squad. She’s also rumored to play Valentina, Darna’s nemesis in the upcoming superhero remake starring Liza Soberano. Plus, she recently got to talk to Captain Marvel herself, Brie Larson.
In any case, we're excited to get to know Wave, the first Filipina heroine in the Marvel universe!
