Zanjoe is Mariel's leading man in 'Varga'

On and off-screen sweethearts actor-model Zanjoe Marudo and host-actress Mariel Rodriguez will work together for ABS-CBN's upcoming super-series "Varga".
In the series, the latest boob tube superheroine Varga will fall in love with a mortal played by Marudo.

"Masaya kasi first time naming magkakasama sa isang series, dati kasi mga isang episode lang, " Marudo said.

Marudo shared that he is now excited to see Rodriguez wear her sexy superhero costume for the series.

"Varga" is the story of a being from outer space gifted with superpowers and beauty. She lands on earth and becomes destined to protect humankind from the forces of evil with the help a kind-hearted girl.

As an alien superheroine who comes to love and protect humanity, Varga will undergo challenges that will really test her character.

The father of Pinoy superheroes, Mars Ravelo created "Varga" in 1947. "Varga" first appeared in Bulaklak magazine.

It was Varga whom Ravelo would later evolve into the ultimate Pinoy superhero icon, "Darna" in 1949, when the comics creator joined Pilipino Komiks.

"Varga" is the second part of the "Mars Ravelo’s Komiks Presents" series. The first Komiks series presented "Kapitan Boom!" top-billed by model-turned-actor Jon Avila.

"Kapitan Boom!" is a huge success, enjoying high ratings for its Saturday time-slot.
Other cast members of "Varga" include actresses Dextor Doria, Sheryl Cruz, child actress Angel Sy and Dominic Ochoa.
