Darna is definitely a hot topic on Philippine social media. With the iconic superhero franchise prepping for another flight, everyone is waiting on who the next Darna will be.
Earlier this year, Star Cinema announced that Darna alumni Angel Locsin won’t be back for another stint as the super heroine due to health reasons.
Angel had a message for whoever takes up the matle of Darna: "I'm very excited for her and sinusuportahan ko siya 100%. Sana ay suporahan din natin kung gaano niyo ako sinuportahan ay ibigay natin sa kanya kasi naniniwala talaga ako sa kanya,"
Netizens, although dismayed by the sad news, are abuzz about the candidates for the iconic role.
One of these candidates is the “Teen Queen” Kathryn Bernardo.
In an interview earlier this week, Kathryn commented, “Para sa ‘kin nag-iisa lang ang Darna, ’yan si Ms. Angel Locsin. Siya ang the best!”
Asked if she ever dreamed about being Darna, she said, “Oo naman. Sinusuot ko pa nga yung costume na yun noong bata pa ako. Siyempre, lahat naman ini-imagine na maging si Darna, ‘Ay gusto ko maging Darna,’ ganyan. Pero ang hirap kasi isa siyang napaka-iconic na Pinoy superhero, e. Ang hirap.”
Of course, with the role comes the costume. Her rumored boyfriend Daniel Padilla had something to say when he was asked if he would allow Kathryn to wear the iconic two-piece.
He said, “Basta ako magtatahi ng damit.”
