MANILA - Talent manager Ogie Diaz reacted to reports that his ward, actress Liza Soberano, has already been tapped to play the superhero Darna in an upcoming movie.

On DZMM's "Sakto" on Friday, Diaz said that he is just waiting for the official announcement of Star Cinema.

"Sa totoo lang, isa lang ang sinasabi ko, hintayin nating mag-announce ang Star Cinema, ayaw ko pong umepal. Ayaw ko sa akin manggaling kung ano ang desisyon nila, kung si Liza ba o ibang aktres ang gaganap na Darna," he said.

"Tinanong ko nga ang Star Cinema, bakit di pa niyo in-announce, [sabi nila] 'mag-a-announce kami.' Hintayin niyo lang,'" he added.

But what is certain, according to Diaz, is that Soberano wants to portray Darna.

"Oo, gustong-gusto ni Liza maging Darna. Totoo yan, totoo yan. Siyempre sino ba naman ang ayaw maging Darna. Kahit nga Captain Barbell siguro mae-excite si Liza. Pero siyempre, isa lang ang tinuturo diyan kung si Liza ba ang gaganap na Darna, kung sakaling si Liza ang kukuning Darna siyempre ang kailangan na lang ay si Ding," Diaz said.

Before her upcoming series "Bagani," Soberano will topbill a special episode of ABS-CBN's long-running drama anthology "Maalaala Mo Kaya (MMK)."

Soberano has been cast to play Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach.
