We’d Like to Play

Now that Angel Locsin is out of the picture (and we’re completely sad) because of her spine problems, people are curious on who will take her place as the classic Pinoy superheroine, Darna. There are a lot of great actresses who could play her, but there can only be one Darna. Here are our top picks:

Sarah Geronimo

If she can belt out a note so high, how far can she reach when she flies?


Ellen Adarna

Her surname alone is enough proof that she’s fit for the role.


Sanya Lopez

If she slayed in being Danaya, watch out when she becomes Darna.


Yassi Pressman

This dancing princess can also be a super heroine.

 Julia Montes

Julia Montes is such a versatile actress, so we know she’ll slay this one.


Liza Soberano

She has the looks, body and character–nasa kanya na ang lahat.


Pia Wurtzbach

With her confidently beautiful personality, she can save the world—the universe, rather.


Nadine Lustre

We can imagine her saying, “Ding, ang bato!” already.


Who’s your pick to play Darna? Share with us your choices below!


  1. I root for Pia! Dream niya talaga mag Darna ever since. :)))

    I LOVE Sarah G, but she’s very conservative (one thing I also love about her), so I doubt she’ll take in the role of Darna.

  2. If the abs cbn can still wait for a little time to heal angels spine we still want angel to fly for the last time hope they will hear us

  3. My pick is Liza Soberano. As you said, she has the face, the body and character. So beautiful inside and out. And she is the new box office royalty!

  4. My pick is Nadine Lustre. She’s got what it takes to be the next “darna” from the face to the physique plus the vibrance of youth for todays genre.
