Netizens might be getting what they want for the upcoming Darna reboot. The role was originally given to Liza Soberano but she couldn’t continue after an injury she sustained from another project. When news broke, people chimed in and gave suggestions for their own picks. Maja Salvador and Nadine Lustre were their top picks.
Well, it seems like former director Erik Matti is on the same page. According to ABS-CBN News he said, “After [Soberano], I only see Nadine Lustre so far as someone who can be Darna. Very sultry. She has a lot of female sensuality and at the same time still looks tough and very Filipina.”
That being said, what does Nadine think? In an interview she said, “I super appreciate that. For them to see me as a person who is strong and very empowered—Darna is a strong woman and nakikita nila sa akin ‘yun, it’s good.”
