The film titled “Gundala” is the based on the comic “Gundala Putra Petir” first released in 1969. The universe will be releasing movies over the span of five years beginning 2019.
The director, Joko Anwar shared images of the superheroes that will be in the BLU, and they will do phases for the release of the films, similar to how Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) had done it for over a decade.
Eight superheroes films are align for the next 5-years:
- Sri Asih
- Godam & Tira
- Si Buta Dari Gua Hantu
- Patriot Taruna
- Gundala: Putra Petir
- Mandala Golok Setan
He also released the actors/actresses that will be playing the superhero characters in the films:
To add on who’s in the cast, our local actor Bront Palarae will be playing the villain “Pengkor” in the BLU universe – he will nailed it!
Just looking at this, we know that Bront Palarae is the perfect fit for the villain role, even for Marvel – why we don’t do our own Superhero universe?
The first installation will premiere in Indonesia on August 29, 2019 but there’s still no indication when will it come to our local cinemas. All and all, lets hope we can do our own superhero universe soon, maybe something surrounds the one from our childhood, “Kluang Man?”.
