ABS-CBN's Captain Barbell: Who will play the role?

ABS-CBN’s Captain Barbell is upcoming. The level of excitement as well as curiosity as to who will play the iconic superhero is increasing.

Leading in an online poll is sporty actor Matteo Guidicelli followed by rookie Kapamilya JC de Vera, multi-awarded star Coco Martin, and “Honesto” cast member Paulo Avelino.

It’s too early to tell who among them will be offered to portray the fictional character though as the Kapamilya network apparently has a tendency to make last-minute decisions.

Take for example the upcoming fantasy series “Dyesebel.” There were rumors that the iconic mermaid will be played by Erich Gonzales, Kim Chiu or KC Concepcion, but after Anne Curtis emerged as netizens’ top choice based on online voting results, ABS-CBN announced with finality that the “It’s Showtime” mainstay got the role.

Captain Barbell, we heard, will be shown later this year and a lot of things might still happen while casting for the fantaserye (and the online “guessing game”) continues.

Before wrapping things up, we’d like to ask...aren’t you wondering why “The Legal Wife” leading man Jericho Rosales isn’t included in the poll?


Don’t you think he’s more deserving to become Captain Barbell than everyone in the list?
