Angel Locsin is Darna 2017

Finally, after years of waiting and speculating on who will portray the role of iconic Darna, Angel Locsin has been confirmed to be reprising the role that initially catapulted her to fame.

When ABS-CBN acquired the rights to the creations of Mars Ravelo, the role of Darna was immediately assumed set for Locsin. However, before the project could commence, Locsin suffered back injuries that jeopardized her dream of flying again as Darna. Thus, preparations had to be stopped, as her health was far more important.

With Locsin seemingly out of the picture, various celebrities, such as Nadine Lustre, Maja Salvador, Kim Chiu, Liza Soberano, Jessy Mendiola, and even Pia Wurtzbach, were speculated to take over the role. The release of Erik Matti’s teaser trailer for Darna heightened the excitement of identifying the name of the ‘new’ Darna. However, audiences were still hoping that Locsin would remain as Darna.

Given her faith and determination, Locsin continued her therapy and healing. The actress did not give up her dream. Apparently, ABS-CBN executives could not imagine any other actress worthier than Locsin to swallow the stone and to soar in the sky as Darna. Thus, they waited until Locsin was fully healed and given clearance for the movie role.

With the decision of Locsin as Darna, the rest of the cast comprising Darna’s nemesis and sidekick Ding will be another point of interest.

In 2005, Locsin played the role of Darna in GMA’s television version. The episode that showed the initial appearance of Locsin as Darna recorded an impressive rating. Other actresses who have played Darna include Rosa del Rosario, Vilma Santos, Dolphy, Anjanette Abayari, Nanette Medved, Sharon Cuneta (cameo), and Marian Rivera.

Star Cinema will release Darna with Angel Locsin in 2017.

  82. Of course, when it comes to Darna, Angel Locsin automatically comes into people's mind! Tatak Angel na yan! No one else can come close to her Darna's phenomenal rating of 64% and above. And of course, Angel Locsin is the original and only legit action-drama queen of the Philippines. Nobody does it better than the Angel Locsin! Thanks FP for this article of our beloved Angel! Love you na!
