Last June we have reported that 13 of the famous Mars Ravelo's creations creation like "Darna" and "Dyesebel" were already acquire by ABS-CBN. These two characters were both became a huge hit TV series in the Kapuso station wherein Angel Locsin and Marian Rivera portrayed the said role!

During that time, it was still a hint if ABS-CBN also acquired the rights of the other hit superhero "Captain Barbell." But now, it was cleared!

Last week, "Captain Barbell" starring Richard Gutierrez concluded in GMA Telebabad. And right after its ending, news spread like wire fire that even "Captain Barbell" is already acquired by ABS-CBN!

Yes, that's true! The family of Mars Ravelo already sold the rights of "Captain Barbell" to the Kapamilya station. And sooner, we will see the new "Captain Barbell" flying on the Kapamilya network!

GMA-7 aired "Captain Barbell" in a TV series for two times. The first one is on 2006 and the other one is this 2011. In these two TV series, Richard Gutierrez portrayed the role of this famous Pinoy superhero!

In 2006, "Captain Barbell" was a huge hit on Primetime! But the second comeback of this superhero this year is not that accepted by viewers! It consistently got poor ratings both in Mega Manila and in nationwide TV rating race. It was even continuously beaten by its rival program! That's why it didn't last long on TV!
