Coco Martin’s Ang Panday Poster Draws Comparison to Star Wars
Star Cinema has released the official poster for Ang Panday starring Coco Martin.
The kicker? It’s got a Star Wars vibe to it. The Drew Struzan vibe is also there. The only thing that’s missing here is a lightsaber and we have The Revenge of Fabio.
Seriously though, while I love me some Panday and classic Pinoy komiks stories, this version’s just way too Star Wars-y for me.
Some fans I spoke too or shared their insights added that this poster lacked a few elements like supporting characters around Martin’s form. There’s also no sign of the main villain in the background which had been subject of interest this month thanks to rumors that Luke Skywalker would do a heel turn in The Last Jedi.
But will I watch and support this? Probably. This is a fresh take with zero Bong Revillas in sight.
Also we need to address where’s the credit to Steve Gan? Carlo J. Caparas got the major credits here but we need to give props to Star-Lord’s creator too y’know.
Ang Panday is slated to open in the Philippines December 25 as part of the Metro Manila Film Festival.
