Angel Locsin to play Darna again, this time in the movie

After months of speculation over who would play the Filipino comics superheroine on the big screen, it is now confirmed that the star of the 2005 television series, Angel Locsin, will don the red and gold outfit in the upcoming film.

The news was confirmed today by Star Cinema managing director Malou Santos who said, “For Darna, we’re already done with the story of her past. We’re already brainstorming. We’re targeting next year for filming. So tuloy-tuloy na ‘yun.”

Angel posted on her official Facebook page earlier today:

“Ako kasi si Darna, feeling ko talaga eh. Kahit hindi ibigay ulit sa akin ang bato, part na siya ng pagkatao ko. ‘Yung magkaroon ako ng opportunity at nagawa ko naman nang maayos ‘yung duty ko bilang si Darna, malaking bagay
na ‘yun sa akin. Pero kung magbabalik ako, okay lang,” – Angel Locsin

The 2005 TV role of Darna for Locsin was a huge springboard to the incredible career she has today.

The comic “Darna” was created by writer Mars Ravelo and artist Nestor Redondo about 60 years ago.
