Last month, we talked about Marvel’s newest Filipina superhero Wave. We didn’t know much about her yet but comic book writer Greg Pak has been sharing some details on Twitter, including this design by Leinil Yu.
As announced at @sxsw, I'm thrilled to share the great @leinilyu's stunning design of WAVE, Marvel's new Filipino superhero! Gorgeous colors by @sunnygho! She'll appear for the first time in WAR OF THE REALMS: NEW AGENTS OF ATLAS #1 in May, with art by Gang-Hyuk Lim! pic.twitter.com/cZhwXbQ1FG

A lot of people were excited to see it, including Angel Locsin who replied to the tweet asking about the inspiration behind her costume. Leinil replied saying it was a collaboration of ideas and he “Would love to see you as Wave, Angel!”
It’s a collaboration of ideas between me, greg and Marvel editorial:). Would love to see you as wave, Angel!

Ooh, could they already be planning for a movie? We sure hope so. Do you guys want to see Angel play Wave too?
