Dingdong Dantes as Zuma

Dingdong Dantes is said to portray the role of Zuma, the comics character created by Jim Fernandez in the 70's.

Zuma is a monster character with a two headed snake that rests on his shoulder. Zuma first appeared in comic series Aztec and later on gained it's popularity with the series "Anak Ni Zuma" in Aliwan Komiks.

It had a prequel "Angkan Ni Zuma" which chronicles Zuma's adventures inancient times. Then his future descendant "Zuma-Maria" and then it had it's own comic book series (although short-lived) titled Zuma Komiks.

Zuma's character has been also into films twice, the original "Zuma" and the sequel "Anak Ni Zuma". Both movies were topbilled by actor Max Laurel.

This remake of "Zuma" will introduce this comics character to the new generation. So far, most comics characters made into films today are those characters created by Carlo J. Caparas, himself, a comics writer legend.

Actor/producer Carlo Maceda will produce the movie. He already talked with Dingdong and Dingdong is said to be interested in the project. They are planning to release "Zuma" within this year.

This movie will temporarily separate Dingdong from his perennial on-screen partner Marian Rivera, who is said to be his real-life girlfriend. Almost all movies/TV shows of Dingdong are with Marian as his leading lady.
