In Focus:  The Internet Places Their Bets On Who Should Be #BagongDarna!

 

You heard it right. Liza Soberano is no longer going to play Darna in its much-awaited big screen project. The actress cited injury acquired on the set of her 2018 fantaserye Bagani, and we should all understand because health comes before anything else—not that she ever needs our seal of approval.

As much as we feel sad over her exit, we can't help but get curious as to who will replace Liza and step into the Filipina superheroine's shoes. The search is on for the next Darna to fly, and of course, the internet has their say on who they want to portray this iconic role. Here are their top picks:

Maja Salvador

Fans are considering Maja for the titular role not only for her strong personality but also for her experience in fight scenes after playing Glen in FPJ's Ang Probinsyano and Ivy Aguas/Lili Cruz in Wildflower. Like gold, she's indestructible.

Kathryn Bernardo

It's possible that Kath's versatility as an actress can bring the komik icon to life. From being a kikay child star to a mature box office queen, we all know Kath's good at surprising us with her acting chops. Let's not forget her stint as the chosen one in 2017's La Luna Sangre.

Julia Montes

If it's acting-wise we're talking about, it's important not to miss Julia's name. She has already proven her credibility in portraying victim, bandit, or both. Her beautiful and powerful image is simply a bonus point.

Jane Oineza

She may not be a household name yet, but Jane sure has a shot. Notable for always giving her best, Jane can totally juggle whatever roles are given to her and nail it. If she gets it, the girl could be a game-changer.

Maine Mendoza

Fans believe her charisma and mass appeal perfectly make her Darna material. Over the years, she has been working on making a name for herself beyond her Yaya Dub image, and she's undoubtedly doing good. Aren't you interested in what else Maine can show off?

Yassi Pressman

Simple probi yet sexy fighter look? Yassi could be the best choice. She has already learned the ropes of action as she plays Cardo's wife in FPJ's Ang Probinsyano. She's also quite the athletic type, so there's no chance we're ruling her out.

Nadine Lustre

Nads is one of the likely candidates to be a perfect fit for Darna in respects to her fierce and pure Pinay beauty and sexy physique. Her confident and daring characters are enough to pull off the role. It's safe to say she definitely has a chance!

There's no guarantee that our collective opinions have a say in the official casting, but maybe it could help speed up the hunt. Just saying!
