How did a thief-turned-superhero like ‘Ant-Man’ inspire Bongbong Marcos to run for president?

Despite her husband’s continuous lead in the surveys, Liza has yet to contemplate what she’d do as First Lady.

For some reason, Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man inspired Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. to run for president.

His wife, Liza Araneta Marcos, shared the story during a sit-down with host Boy Abunda.

She said Marcos Jr. was unsure of his plans in politics six months ago.

“You know six months ago, he wasn’t so sure what to do, with no party, you know,” Liza said.

But he made up his mind while watching Ant-Man, a movie about a master thief who later becomes a superhero thanks to a “shrinking suit” he stole.

“And then one day we’re watching Ant-Man in the room… He loved Marvel movies, and then he looked at me and he goes, ‘Okay, we’re gonna do this,’ he told me. ‘Do what?’ ‘Run for the presidency,” Liza said.

Despite her husband’s continuous lead in the surveys, Liza has yet to contemplate what she’d do as First Lady.

“I don’t wanna jinx it because, in 2016, we really thought we would win,” she said. “Try losing and living with it for six years. That’s difficult.” she continued.

Marcos lost the vice-presidential race to Leni Robredo who is slowly gaining more supporters.

Voters were astounded upon hearing about the story.

Everything is just too weird, netizens said.
