Who’s Erik Matti’s choice as Darna?

MANILA, Philippines — One of these four actresses (whose faces were superimposed on the costumed body of Marian Rivera who has played the legendary Pinoy super-heroine) could be the replacement for Liza Soberano who gave up the role due to a finger injured during a shoot for the Kapamilya action series Bagani.

Asked who his choice is as Liza’s replacement, director Erik Matti (photo, who also quit the project, replaced by Jerrold Tarog), told Funfare:

“I really feel that Liza would have been a fresh and exciting Darna. She’s young and embodies a lot of potential to create a modern take for this classic superhero character.

“After her, 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. The key to casting Darna has always been someone who can look plain and ordinary in her Narda alter ego but can be tough, spunky and can be very sexy as well when she transforms to Darna. Nadine can look all of that.”
