"Hindi, hindi [inalok sa akin]," Coco told ABS-CBN News when asked if he was the chosen one  to reprise the Filipino superhero on the network's TV adaptation.

After the revelation of Anne Curtis as the new Dyesebel, ABS-CBN started to air teasers for the next  Mars Ravelo's characters who will be given life again, including Darna and Captain Barbell.

Coco Martin said even though the project was huge, the role of Captain Barbell may not fit him because of his height. According to the Juan Dela Cruz star, he could only pass as Captain Barbell's alter-ego, Teng.

"Hindi. Ang liit ko. Baka 'yung kapag naging superhero na siya hindi na ako 'yon. Ako 'yung normal. Maganda 'yung proyekto pero baka hindi sa akin bagay, baka pagtawanan ako," he said.

Coco is now working on his upcoming indie film Padre de Familia [read more about the movie here] with Nora Aunor and Julia Montes. After the movie, Coco revealed that he will headline another ABS-CBN teleserye.

"Baka mag-start na ako itong end of January. Magbabalik ako. Napakagandang ano sa akin, kasi after Juan dela Cruz, superhero siya, ngayon gumawa ako ng ganitong klaseng pelikula. Tapos ang gagawin kong next soap ay heavy drama na may action, kumbaga ready ako ngayon humarap sa soap operang gagawin ko," he said.

JC de Vera started his showbiz career as a Kapuso way back in 2003 where he became a part of the youth-oriented show Click. Dubbed then as GMA-7 "Drama Prince," JC starred in several shows including Pati Ba Pintig ng Puso, Pasan Ko Ang Daigdig, Babangon Ako't Dudurugin Kita and Lalola.

It was in 2010 when JC de Vera left GMA Network to become a Kapatid. He  signed a three-year non-exclusive contract with TV-5 where he topbilled TV series such as My Driver Sweet Lover, Ang Utol Kong Hoodlum, and Valiente. He also became a part of the gag show Loko Moko U.

After leaving GMA-7, JC de Vera is rumored to be playing Judy Ann Santos' leading man in the 2010 teleserye Habang May Buhay, but he eventually transferred to TV-5. After his TV-5 contract expired early this year, JC de Vera also did not renew his management contract with manager Annabelle Rama. He just finished his commitment in Cassandra: Warrior Angel before jumping ship to the Kapamilya network.

KC Concepcion is Darna, Jericho Rosales is Captain Barbell

Posted on July 28, 2013 | 7:36 PM

Actress-host KC Concepcion and actor Jericho Rosales took on the role of the Filipino heroic icons Darna and Captain Barbell during the opening number of ASAP 18 on Sunday, July 28.

Jericho Rosales, donning Captain Barbell's yellow suit, was revealed as the alter-ego of the weak boy Teng, played by Sam Concepcion after the latter raised the magic barbell. Meanwhile, KC Concepcion appeared first as the ordinary Narda before she delivered the immortal line "Ding, ang bato!" to emerge as the superheroine Darna.

Rayver Cruz also played one of Mars Ravelo's superheroes, Lastikman in the ASAP opening dance number while Iya Villania, John Pratts and Arron Villaflor played the villains.

Since ABS-CBN has acquired the exclusive rights to the popular works of Mars Ravelo, including Darna and Captain Barbell, do you think KC and Echo are fit to portray these iconic superheroes when the network starts production of their own remake?

ABS-CBN has yet to choose who will portray Darna and Captain Barbell, but KC, Angel Locsin, Cristine Reyes, Sarah Geronimo and Jessy Mendiola have been considered by many as potential perfect fits for Darna while Echo, Gerald Anderson, Sam Milby, JC De Vera, Joseph Marco and Luis Manzano have been considered to be potential Captain Barbell.

What do you think about Jericho and KC? Are they fit for the roles of Captain Barbell and Darna, respectively?

ABS-CBN's Darna, Dyesebel and Captain Barbell - Who are your bets?

Posted on March 24, 2012 | 5:50 PM

Last year, ABS-CBN had acquired the rights to the different masterpieces of Mars Ravelo including the famous Darna, Captain Barbell and Dyesebel. These 3 are the most remade of Ravelo's works, the last of which were from GMA-7 played by its prime talents, Marian Rivera and Richard Guttierez. 

Speculations are now abuzz on who will be playing these characters now that the Kapamilya network had the rights for a remake. According to reports, there are rumors that Cristine Reyes was the one chosen to play Darna which was once played by Angel Locsin and Marian Rivera.

There are also reports that it is Gerald Anderson who will play ABS-CBN's Captain Barbell while Andi Eigenmann will be the Kapamilya Dyesebel.

Although nothing is confirmed yet, we can assume that these actors really fit their designated roles. Cristine exudes the sexiness of Darna and Gerald's matinee idol looks and muscled body will also be a good fit for Captain Barbell's suit while Andi is already a creature of the sea after Agua Bendita.

What's more exciting to see is how they will attack on the roles previously played by Kapuso stars. A comparison is always given so it is interesting how ABS-CBN will create their own mark and flavor to these famous works of Mars Ravelo to make it different from previous remakes of rival GMA.

If it's not Cristine, Gerald or Andi, who are your bets?
