Angel Locsin beat out a slew of powerhouse Kapamilya princesses to once again don the red and gold outfit of Pinay superheroine, ‘Darna’.
Since ABS-CBN acquired the exclusive rights to make a TV and movie adaptation of 13 Mars Ravelo titles including the most-loved heroine, fans have started campaigning for their idols for the coveted role. Names like Maja Salvador, Sarah Geronimo, KC Concepcion, Bea Alonzo, Kim Chiu surmised. But the powers-that-be have spoken and once again, Angel Locsin, erstwhile ‘Darna’ soars anew.
Angel is no longer a stranger to the role. She was once GMA7’s original ‘Darna’ prior to transferring to ABS-CBN. Her transfer left the role open for several Kapuso actresses until Marian Rivera took over as keeper of the ‘white stone’.
Angel joins the ranks of Vilma Santos, Anjanette Abayari and Nanette Medved as actresses worthy enough to soar in the big-screen as ‘Darna’.
