For his latest film, Vice will be starring with a certified Box Office King, Padilla, also with a mammoth of successful films. The strength of Padilla’s popularity is also translated on the small screen as his current primetime telerserye on ABS-CBN, La Luna Sangre remains to bring in one of the highest ratings in the Philippine television.
Adding color to the lineup of stars is Wurtzbach, who created international headlines when she was crowned Miss Universe in the historic Miss Universe 2015 pageant. She snatched the coveted title and brought a well-deserved honor to the Philippines and to every Filipino in the most dramatic of fashions, transcending her status from celebrity to the exhilarating level of both national hero and national treasure.
Under the helm of Bernal and written by Danno Mariquit, “The Revenger Squad” marks a lot of firsts for Vice, Padilla, and Wurtzbach. This is the first time that Vice Ganda and Padilla will be doing a superhero film, with the latter also trying his hand in comedy the first time. Meantime, this is the big screen debut of Wurtzbach after her big win.
The story of “The Revenger Squad” revolves around makeup and rags reseller Emy (Vice Ganda) who, despite his faulty memory, never forgets to guard his younger brother Chino (Daniel Padilla) from harm – to the point of becoming overprotective of his younger brother. The fun begins when Chino turns 21 and Emy remembers the truth about them – that he is the superhero Gandarra and that Chino’s super abilities will soon activate now that he is an adult. Wanting to shelter Chino from the dangers of being a superhero, Emy keeps the truth from his brother and becomes even more protective.
This, until a new superhero emerges, Rapiddo, who Emy discovers is his younger brother Chino. He then decides to become Gandarra again to secretly help and protect his brother. Together with Emy’s super best buddies, Gandarra and Rapiddo become a squad of superheroes who treat each other as family.
The conflict begins when the eccentric superhero Kweenie (Pia Wurtzbach) enters their lives and drops the truth that could break their family.
