Angel Locsin, dream role si Gabriela Silang?

Angel Locsin has a knack for playing powerful female characters, and it doesn't seem as though she'll be stopping anytime soon.

"The General's Daughter" set Twitterverse on fire just last March 18 when she was tagged by Leinil Yu, creator of Wave, the first Filipina superhero in the Marvel Universe, as the ideal actress to play the character.

Upon hearing the announcement about Wave's introduction to the "War of the Realms: Agents of Atlas'" first edition, Angel wrote to Leinil, "I'm excited to learn more about this character! I love that her weapon of choice is Kampilan, which is believed to be the sword Lapu-Lapu used to strike down Ferdinand Magellan. So [thumbs up] for that!"

To which the comic book artist replied, "Would love to see you as Wave, Angel!"



This doesn't seem to be in the cards, however, as the Action Drama Queen said that while she's flattered to have been chosen, she's "finished with superhero roles".



What does seem to be a possibility is Angel taking on the role of Filipina revolutionary leader and feminist icon Gabriela Silang. According to the actress, it would be a dream come true to bring her back to life on the big screen.





We think we're speaking for all of us when we say: Angel Locsin walks among us, what a time to be alive!

Angel's last big screen outing was in the 2016 romantic comedy "The Third Party." She's since made a home in television, playing one iconic female character after another. Her comeback role as Jacintha Magsaysay in "La Luna Sangre" was a national favorite, as is her current undertaking as the morally gray killing machine Rhian Bonifacio in "The General's Daughter."
