LOOK: Angel Locsin Passes the Darna Torch to Liza Soberano
She's got the original Darna's official approval!
(SPOT.ph) The announcement of Liza Soberano as Darna was met with a mix of excitement, curiosity, and strong apprehension. But if there's one person who met the news with positivity, it's the original Darna herself, Angel Locsin.
In a lengthy Instagram post (below), she shared how the three komiks she gifted to Liza have been hers for 10 years. "These were given to me way back when I was asked to play the role of Darna for me to get to know the superheroine better," she wrote. "I asked Tita Malou to give these to Liza as my gift hoping they can help her just as they helped me."
She wished Liza luck, thanked her former and current networks for the opportunity, and added, "I know she'll do great. [...] Now it's time to welcome a new Darna."
Meanwhile, Liza has already begun her physical training with the help of fitness trainer, Bok Santos, who shared photos of her workouts:
So far, a release date for the movie has yet to be announced.
