The movie adaptation of Philippine classic, ‘Darna’, is surely taking shape. After Jerrold Tarog was confirmed to take over directorial chores, the public eagerly awaited the announcement of the actress who would be portraying the iconic role.

Besting many hopefuls, from unknowns to popular talents from the two major networks, ABS-CBN talent, Jane de Leon was awarded the coveted role. She joins the ranks of previous actresses who have played the role, such as Vilma Santos, Angel Locsin, and Marian Rivera.

After Darna has been confirmed, the search for other roles was the subject of fan speculations. According to sources, Darna’s leading man has been chosen. Paulo Avelino has been assigned to partner with de Leon in the movie. Avelino has worked with Tarog in ‘Heneral Luna’ and in his title role in ‘Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral’.

Incidentally, the role of Darna’s nemesis, Valentina, was allegedly offered to a popular ‘bida/kontrabida’ Kapamilya actress, who allegedly turned down the offer. Other celebrities rumored to be considered for the role of ‘Valentina’ are Ivana Alawi and even Pia Wurtzbach.

    2. Si Pia glamorous? No thanks. Lol.

    3. Correct. Lalamunan lang sya nung dalawa. Mas malakas ang appeal ni pia and ivana

      Delete
    4. @332 korek ka dyan. Mas interesting pa yun role tuloy ng villainess. And true din na nawalan na ng interes mga tao sa Darna.

      Delete
    5. jusq pag c ivana ang ipapasok finish na hinaharap pa lng 🤣🤣

      Delete
    6. Si Pia ? Ma-appeal, nasaan? Tagal niya sa Star Magic ateng noon pa man ,ni-isang kapamilya na boys walang napabalitang nagligaw or nagkacrush sa kanya! Napansin lang siya noong nanalo sa Ms. U! Sa truth lang Tayo, kung Hindi siya nanalo, I doubt it na ganyan ang sasahihin mo.

      Delete
    7. Prefer Pia or Ivana to be Darna not Valentina.

      Delete
    8. Maganda kung si Ivana para bago naman

      Delete
    9. Sorry but Pia and Ivana’s acting were so lame. If Pia wasn’t a Ms U tingin mo may career siya? While Ivana if not sexy yung acting niya lang nganga.

      Delete
    10. 7:54 wala pa siya makeover nun lol. Nagimprove ng malaki yung appearance niya ng nagcompete siya sa pageant dahil sa training

    11. Ivana for Black Darna!

    12. wag si Ivana, pang lead si Ivana, mas pwede pa si Pia jan sa role na valentina, sana sa IwantTV ito ipalabas

      Delete
    13. 10:03 Is Jane de Leon any better sa actingan?

      Delete
  3. Si Ivana na lang ang Valentina. I don't think kukunin ni Pia ang role dahil may image lalo na her features/ face can make her a good kontrabida.

  7. Hmm Paulo is a very good actor but let’s be honest he has zero mass appeal👀 Jane is still a starlet, they should’ve casted a bigger name actor for her leading man. At this rate they need to choose a really big name actress to play Valentina cuz right now this project has zero appeal.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Eh parepareho lang atake ni paulo avelino eh

      Delete
    2. Agree plus isn’t Paulo a lot older than her? They should’ve chosen someone more in her batch, maybe Joshua Garcia, Kiko Estrada, Arjo, etc. At least someone who will appeal to the mellenial fanbase since this is a coming of age Darna movie. Seems like this movie will rely on whoever is playing Valentina! The roles of Darna and her leading man have already been miscasted imo👀

      Delete
    3. This! Kulang sa charisma si Paulo to be honest

      Delete
    4. 6:14 Mas mukhang Ding si Joshua next to Jane hindi bagay lol

      Delete
    5. Dapat wala na lang leading man or romantic interest. Ayusin na lang yung story at action scenes.

      Delete
  8. Sana si Ivana nalang para tuloy tuloy ang rise to fame nya. I really like her personality! Surprisingly, di din sya papahuli sa actingan kela Jodi sa “Sino ang may sala”

    1. Very risky move to, so I dunno if abs will take the risk. Hindi pa napapatunayan that she actually has the range para magplay ng ganitong role cause fantasy/superhero movie to. Apart from pagiging kontrabida, dapat may otherwordly na factor din yung pagarte cause they're not playing ordinary people.

      Delete
    2. 11:16 yet si Jane kinuha nila as Darna 🙄 at least, Ivana has ‘following’ than Jane na very Plain.

      Delete
    3. 1:26 they don't have much of a choice tbh. There's nobody in their roster who could play darna.

      Delete
    4. Put Ivana as the Valentina, mas bagay at mas may hatak.

      Delete
  9. Oops. Mukang papanoodin ko na. Basta madaming appearances si Paulo!

    1. Maganda sana kung gawin si Paulo na kontrabida dito.

  10. More than the Darna role I believe importante din sa movie ang mag po-portray as Valentina. Dapat pang bida din ang aurahan!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Glamorous? Maybe, pero hindi pa din marunong umarte si Pia.

    2. Eh hindi naman masyadong maganda ang face ni ivana at pia compared kay jane so okay lang.

  13. even sa mga old darna movies and serye hindi naman masyado big deal kung sino ang love interest na guy, mas interested mga tao sa kontrabida
    pag si pia masasapawan yung bida sa totoo lang
    mas bagay si denise laurel, para di masyado ma lamon yung new darna dahil sa height

    3. Umm only if Arci will not talk the way she talks in all the characters she plays.

    4. 11:15 what kung magsalita si Valentina aka Arci, eh pabebe?

  14. Sino kayang bida-kontrabida nag decline? Hmmm Denise Laurel? Saw yung TWBA guesting, pwede. Pwede ring Ivana, Ivana nalang. Ganda ng mata, seductive.

    1. Kulang sa mass appeal si Joshua. Hindi rin Sobrang gwapo sa big screen. Isang hit movie lang ang nagawa nila ni Julia, ang first movie nila sa MMFF, mga sumunod na movie nila ay waley na. Block Z struggles at Box office

    1. Hindi naman bida-kontrabida si Dimples. Kontrabida lang siya.

  21. Hope the storyline would be good. Goodluck!

  22. I like Ivana as valentine but if andun sya, this movie might not be Darna anymore, rather, magiging Valentina na. 😂 Sexy, maganda, magaling umarte at ma appeal sa masa, lalo sa boys si Ivana. So finish na pag ibalik at tinanggap nya.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Pag sya nag valentina. For sure sya yung aabangan di yung Darna. So maaalis yung spotlight sa bida

      Delete
    2. I don't think so. Of course, makakadagdag ang hatak ni Ivana sa boys pero hindi naman nya kabog ang facial beauty ni Jane so mapapansin parin si Jane.

    4. 10:20. But they can’t afford a proper CGI for it. They don’t have the technology and experts. It will just look like another amateurish and cheap pinas movie.

  24. si ivana na lang tapos gawin na lang backstory ni valentina, parang joker, harley quinn, ganern. Parang mas matunog pa si ateng kay darna.

  25. pogi naman si Paulo pero parang kulang ng dating at boring

  26. This is a big gamble! Walang hatak! Ivana or pia will overshadow darna!

  29. For me sana wag muna nila ilabas agad2 si Valentina. Mag labas muna sila ng puchu2 na kalaban.. focus muna sa backstory ni Narda/Darna then itease nila si Valentina sa post credits scene! Ganern! Para may abangan sa sequel! Nyahahahha

  30. Naku kala ko coming of age movie ito? Ang tanda na ni Paulo! Jusme, wala pang appeal! Ibigay nila yang leading man role sa bata at inosente. Yung mala Joshua Garcia.

  31. I like Paulo because of his looks...But he is so bland and boring at the same time. He acts the same in every movie or series he's in...No more surprise.

  32. They need big names with legit talent para madala tong movie na to. A solid supporting cast can really help elevate the performance of the lead actress. Or at least, make it look like she's doing really good too.

    ReplyDelete
  33. It will hype people soon enough that depends on their marketing.

  34. Masyadong malakas ang dating ni Ivana compared to Jane. Not to mention that Ivana is actually a good actress. Baka dapat kumuha sila ng magaling pero lesser known para di pa ganun kalakas ang dating sa tao. They need to help Jane but at at the same time di sya masapawan.

    1. LMAO! Sobrang ganda ng mukha ni Jane, hindi sya masasapwan ni Ivana. Sa sexy body ang edge nI ivana pero hindi kasing ganda ng mukha nya ang mukha ni jane.

  35. Wala namang ka.amor2 ang acting ni Paulo tho. He’s very uninteresting na tao both from the character that he plays to the person that he is offcam.

  39. Sa totoo lang bet ko si Maxine Medina when I saw her doing a bit of action role sa Los Bastardos. Very Pinay ang beauty. Ma woworkshop pa ang acting nya. Sadly the network capped an age limit. Maxine as Darna, Ivana as Valentina. Oh Di ba winner na winner. Very Pinay na bida at Ivana in contrast to Maxine’s demure look.

    1. Maxine is just typical looking chinita/morena pinay.
