Senator Manny Pacquiao, who graced the launch of Comic Convention Asia 2018 in Makati City Wednesday night, bared that he is open to starring in another super hero movie.
“Pwede pa rin naman…. pag may time,” said Pacquiao, when asked if he still wanted to do another movie about super hero.
Pacquiao said that movies and comic characters are close to his heart because he appeared in the super hero film “Wapakman,” an entry to the 2009 Metro Manila Film Festival.
“Comic characters have a special meaning to me. Remember I played the role of ‘Wapakman?’ Nakalimutan n’yo na yata ang ‘Wapakman?’” said the smiling Filipino boxing icon as the crowd cheered.
In the said movie, Pacquiao played Magno Meneses who is torn between saving the world or staying with his children.
“My life has been an open book. Somehow, I can relate to these characters that we idolize. We hope to bring our talents in the comics industry to international enterprises,” Pacquiao said.
The popular Filipino athlete said that the Comic Con Asia 2018 “will also bring the Philippines at the forefront of regional convention venues and an ideal tourism destination.”
Pacquiao has also been named ambassador for Comic Con Asia 2018 as he lauded the talented artists, creators and producers behind the best comics, movies, series, manga, animé, toys, gaming, and cosplay.
“No magnitude of this convention has been staged in the country. We hope to gather the best in comics from the Philippines and Asia,” Pacquiao said.
The Comic Con Asia 2018 will be held at the SMX Mall of Asia in Pasay City on March 24-25, 2018.
The main floor will be divided into four zones: Manga and animé, comics, toys and gaming, and movies, series and animation.
