In a recent press conference that was held for Victor Magtanggol, Alden shot down his new teleserye’s detractor’s accusations that the show is just a ripoff of a Hollywood concept. “Hindi po kami copycat kasi original concept po ito ng Pinoy,” says Alden.

When accusations of plagiarism surfaced, the show’s creators came to the defense of the show saying that Victor Magtanggol is inspired from Norse mythology. “Ang Norse mythology po is a public domain,” says Alden, “kaya po ipinapaliwanag po natin sa lahat na public domain po ang Norse mythology, [kasi] anyone can create stories of out the mythology kasi wala pong nagmamay-ari sa kanya.”

Nakasanayan lang po talaga siguro natin yung mga napanood nating pelikula na iyon yung naging image nung Thor. So ito po talaga is really based on myth and may pinanggagalingan po siya,” shares Alden during the press conference. 

While the whole team behind the show stands firm with this stance, there are some who still think that Victor Magtanggol is inspired from Marvel’s Thor.

Do you think Victor Matanggol is too close to the Hollywood version of Thor?
