There’s no denying that Avenger’s Infinity War is indeed the talk of the town nowadays. Ever since its premiere on April 27, we could read posts “no spoilers please” from those who haven’t seen it and photos of our friends with the movie poster as backdrop or tickets as proofs that they were able to watch it.
In this latest offering from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, our revered heroes comprising the powerful squad of Avengers would assemble and joined forces with the mighty Guardians of the Galaxy to defeat the vicious monstrous villain Thanos (Josh Brolin), who aims to collect all the Infinity Stones in order to attain supremacy on all of reality and “re-balance the universe” which he believes is already populated.
Avengers is led by Tony Stark (or Iron Man), the self-described genius, playboy, and billionaire Chief Executive Officer of chief weapons manufacturer for the US Military Stark Industries, portrayed by revered Hollywood actor Robert Downey Jr.
Since Avenger’s Infinity War is the currently creating a hullabaloo, a bizarre idea struck us just for fun: What if think of a Kapamilya star to don that Iron Man suit, who would it be?
In our ABS-CBN Official Facebook Page, we posted a survey and let the netizens choose who among John Lloyd Cruz, Luis Manzano, and Ian Veneracion is perfect for an aspired Pinoy Iron Man. And for them, it’s the A Love To Last star.
With his hunky built and facial features, the commenters were quick to point out the multi-faceted actor is perfect because of his striking resemblance with Downey Jr. Besides, they also seem to have the same age, although the latter is 10 years older than the former.
Although he is currently on hiatus, John Lloyd is still one of the options because isn’t it exciting to finally see him doing a superhero action movie and take a break from the romantic and drama genre? The same goes with Luis Manzano who has been known for his undisputed flair in comedy and hosting, though he has already portrayed a Pinoy superhero “Flash Bomba” before in Komiks Presents.
Can you now imagine Ian wearing the metallic gold and red powered iron armor?
