Repost: Angel Locsin Has No Plans of Taking Over Darna

Angel Locsin remains to be the top choice to play Philippine heroine Darna.

At least, that's what fans keep telling her, usually --one can imagine-- with hands clasped together in prayer, ignoring that she herself has said that her time as the Pinay superhero is up and that it's only right to hand down the fabled "bato" to someone else to keep the character's legacy alive.

It's been more than a decade since Locsin wore the iconic costume for a TV series, imbuing it with gravitas and grace --a famous performance that defined, in the eyes of many, what a strong female superheroine should be for years to come.

She was supposed to don it again for a movie but had to exit the project due to health concerns regarding her back. Since then, she has expressed her full support for her replacement, young actress Liza Soberano, and yet there were still rumblings.

This noisy clamor for her to take the role back found headwind when she was seen doing stunts for her primetime series "The General's Daughter." It only grew stronger when it was revealed that Soberano has decided to back out because of a finger injury.

But, in an interview with ABS-CBN News' MJ Felipe, Locsin's answer remained to be a firm "no."

Her first thought when the news broke out, she shared, was not that if she could possibly reconsider putting on the costume again. Rather, it was one of worry.

"Nag-alala ako sa kaniya," she said of Soberano.
(I was worried about her.)

"Kung mayroon man sigurong tao na makakaintindi sa pinagdadaanan niya ngayon, ako iyon. Nag-alala ako na sana OK lang siya. So nag-try ako mag-message sa kanya. Sabi ko lang , 'Liza.' "Sagot niya, 'Ate, I'm sorry.'"

(If there's someone who would understand what she's going through, that's me. I got worried and hoped she's OK. So I tried to message her. I just said 'Liza.' She answered, 'Ate, I'm sorry.')

"Naramdaman ko kung gaano siya ka-devastated sa nangyari and kung gaano niya kagusto i-please iyong network and fans niya na nagaantay. Pero siyempre, kailangan din niyang alagaan iyong sarili niya. Siguro ganoon din niya kamahal iyong role, na feeling niya hindi niya maibibigay iyong buo niya."

(I felt how devastated she was about what happened and how much she wants to please the network and her fans who have been waiting. But of course, she needs to take care of herself. Perhaps that's how much she loved the role, that she felt she couldn't give her all.)

She also begged fans to give the selection process for the new Darna some time, true to the comics' lore about the hero, "ang bato talaga ni Darna, namimili ng tao. Hindi basta basta lang."

(Darna's stone chooses. It's not that simple.)

  1. Magkano ba ang handang gastusin ng Star Cinema for Darna? 200M? 500M? 1B? Sana talaga maganda ang effects. Expected ko naman na hindi MCU levels ang magiging visual effects ng Darna, pero at least man lang ka level na ng "Supergirl" at "Flash" yung quality ng effects.

  4. Luging-lugi na ang abs-cbn sa Darna na yan. Sa pagkabili pa lang nila ng rights mula sa mga Ravelo ilang milyon na then mga pre-production ek-ek. Makakabawi pa ba sila kung wala na ring interes ang tao dahil sa tagal

  10. Kung hindi para sa yo hindi talaga. Simple as that. No need to mention basta-basta. Darna is a comic legend maybe we should leave it as that.

  13. Angel will always be our best Darna. Mahirap pantayan yung phenomenal sensation nya when she portrayed the role of Darna.. She made Darna an iconic superheroine in Phil television.

    1. Sa inyong mga fantards lang yan teh. Anjanette and nanette were really good as darnas of the 80s and 90s.

    2. Si Sharon din maganda ang portrayal ng Darna kahit hindi full length ang pag-Darna niya noong 80's. Umayaw siya dahil sa hirap ng shooting kaya napunta kay Nanette.

      Maganda rin kay Vilma. Best Darna.

      Delete
    3. nanette is da best darna.

    4. 1:59 may television na ba at that time? aminin na natin na iba ang impact ng television series during the early 2000s era.. Dahil nga sa Darna ni angel kaya nag start ang fantasy primetime series sa Pinas and Abscbn became number 2 because of her Darna.. Iba talaga yun impact ng TV

      Delete
    5. Actually Nung Time ni Nanette Medved eh Hndi dapat sa kanya mapupunta Ang Darna kundi kay Dawn Zulueta At si Nanette Ang gagawa ng Dyesebel before...

      Delete
    6. Ang best Darna for me is ate Vi.Yan ang iconic role.

      Delete
    7. Magaling din si Marian Rivera but all of the modern Darnas were good role models for the young ones.

      Delete
    8. Bakla pati si Regine Velasquez nag-Darna pero parang kay Shawie lang na cameo role sa Captain Barbell ni Bong Revilla.

      Wala lang, maisingit ko lang hahaha. Just want to say na sobrang bigatin talaga ng mga pangalan sa listahan ng mga babaeng gumanap bilang Darna.

      Delete
    9. 7:56 AM, I agree with you BEST DARNA si Ms. Vilma Santos otherwise she won't be DARNA 4 X on big screen. Darna na Dysebel pa at Kampanerang Kuba pa.

      Delete
    10. Kung ikumpara mo ang liksi at tikas ni nanette during that time sya talaga ang best darna makypad si angel camera na lang nagdala.

      Delete
    11. 7:00, hindi na-consider si Dawn Zulueta for Darna.

      Nag-Darna si Sharon sa Captain Barbell ni Edu Manzano at Herbert Bautista. Intro iyon para sa full length movie ni Sharon na Darna. Nahirapan si Sharon sa mga stunts dahil iba pa ang technology noon. Ibinibitin talaga ang artista sa stunts. Umayaw siya at ang napili ng Viva ay si Nanette Medved para pumalit kay Sharon.

      Kasing-edad ko kasi sila kaya natatandaan ko iyan. Hahaha!

  14. I think abscbn should wait a little bit longer or try harder to find a younger version of Angel Locsin.. yung fresh at walang bahid ng bad image.. Yung true Filipina beauty na may courage, dignity, character, maamo mukha, sexy pero respectable, may innocence and sensuality, may porma at may dating sa action.. yung mata palang, "Darnang Darna na.." mag pa audition kayo abscbn

  15. Ylona Garcia nga. She can look submissive then fierce pag transformation into darna. Abs can wait a little longer siguro for her.

  24. Kathryn Bernardo has the biggest chance for Darna to be a phenomenal hit kasi Star Cinema will do everything to promote it, let's face it, she has the biggest fandom sa mga young girls ngayon. Hindi nila isusugal yan sa isang artist na walang hatak sa masa. Business is business.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yun fans lang naman ni Angel ang nagpipilit na ibalik sa kanya Darna. Oo may angas siya but accept the fact that she’s not fit, mabigat na ang katawan niya at di na siya maliksi. Hindi siya makapag loose ng weight cod her spinal injury and most of all may edad na siya. Even Anne Curtis who was told to do Darna says na she’s too old to play the role considering na at her age she takes care of her body & she’s fit . Let go Angels

  27. Sus, wag ng ipilit si Angel utang ng loob.
    Di na talaga bagay sa kanya.
    At saka wala naman siyang boxoffice appeal.
