PODCAST: Who is the Filipino? Superhero worship
MANILA, Philippines – This past decade, superheroes have become the most prevalent form of mainstream entertainment around the globe. However, locally, we haven't seen a true blue Pinoy superhero film for quite some time now.
That's due to change next year with the coming of Darna.
In part 2 of our podcast, we ask Heneral Luna and Darna director Jerrold Tarog what sets our local heroes apart from the Marvel and DC movies of today. [Catch part 1 here.]
We also ask him about the differences in adapting history versus komiks. How does he strike a balance between the escapism of fantasy and the complex characterizations he's known to inject when tackling real-life heroes? – Rappler.com
In these changing times, courage and clarity become even more important.
