Many famous and actresses played the iconic Pinoy superheroine “Darna,” such as Vilma Santos, Lorna Tolentino, Nanette Medved, Anjanette Abayari, Angel Locsin, Marian Rivera and many more.
For the second time around, the 34-year-old Kapamilya actress Angel Locsin was considered to play the title role, but the actress had to back out in 2015 after she developed a disc bulge in her spine while training for the movie.
After Angel, Liza Soberano was chosen as the millennial iteration of the komiks icon in May 2017, but unfortunately, she also had to quit from the role earlier this year because of her fractured right index finger. And after months of searching, a new actress was cast in the highly coveted role of Darna, and she is none other than Jane de Leon.
Just recently, Angel Locsin shared a photo on her social media account that elicited different reactions from the netizens. Her latest Instagram story shows some of her selfies while using the “Darna” filter.
As seen in the photo, the beautiful actress who previously played the same role donned the virtual ‘Darna’ headdress, and she also did some fighting pose.
While many of her fans were delighted to see Angel doing such poses, there are also some who left negative comments after it was shared on other social media platforms.
Check out some of the comments of the online users taken from the entertainment site, Fashion Pulis.
“Here we go again…”
“The same drama ni tanders.”
“Best name recall for actresses who did Darna is still Angel. And there should be no issue with this filter as she was really Darna. Her face really got that look – appealing, fierce, soft, for a heroine.”
“I don’t see anything wrong. Nag-Darna sya at malaking part yun ng career nya. It’s not bad mag-reminisce ng past.”
“Sa Pinas lang big deal ang age. Heller mga bitteranang haters, sa US nga mga may edad na ang gumaganap sa Avengers.”
