HOLLYWOOD, California (
The Adobo Chronicles, San Francisco Bureau) – The reviews are in! “Batman V Superman Is V Bad,” “Even Wonder Woman Can’t Save This Unholy Mess,” “This Movie Is A Crime Against Comic Book Fans.”
Of course these are reviews from film critics. This latest DC Comics superhero movie hasn’t officially opened yet, so it remains to be seen how the moviegoers will judge what the producers hope would be a worldwide blockbuster.
But already, DC Comics is looking ahead, hoping to rise from what seems to be a sure flop this summer. It has just announced a new, unprecedented sequel to “Batman vs. Superman.”
The sequel, again to be distributed by Warner Bros., will introduce a new superhero, Pacman. The sequel will be titled “Superman Vs. Pacman.”
The Adobo Chronicles
learned that the Pacman character was inspired by no other than Filipino champion boxer Manny Pacquiao, a.k.a Pacman.
DC Comics, however declined to reveal what super power Pacman will have, only to say it is not just boxing.
Both DC Comics and Warner Bros. expect this sequel, to be released in 2017, to break all box-office records by previous superhero movies.
The casting director for the film is now in Manila, searching for the one Pinoy actor who will play Pacman. Pacquiao is not being considered, especially after his comments about gay men and women, which have offended not just the LGBT community in the Philippines, but all of gay Hollywood.
