Enrique Gil will play a new Filipino superhero in an upcoming film, the actor revealed.
The film will tell the story of a young man who struggles with the question on whether to use his newly-acquired powers for good instead of for more personal, selfish gains, Gil said.
“There’s a point in my life na, ‘Ako kapag naging superhero ako gagawin ko lahat ng gusto ko na hindi ko magawa!’ You will probably go and get the money, as in whatever you want kapag may power ka,” he explained. “Iyong pinaka-crush mo na artista sa Hollywood, pupuntahan mo.”
“Pero with great power comes great responsibility,” the “Dolce Amore” star added, quoting a famous line from the “Spider-Man” comics. “Parang iyon ang story namin.”
The currently-untitled project already has a script, shared Gil, and will be produced by the same team behind his crime-thriller, “Dukot.”
No other details, such as whether he will be paired with onscreen partner Liza Soberano, or a release date, were given. (MNS)
