In an Instagram post, the 23-year-old actress wrote a "disclaimer" explaining her Darna attire.

"Disclaimer: *Ito ay pawan katatawanan lamang, trabaho lang po. Walang personalan.* Masaya nako kasi nabigyan ako ng pagkakataon masuot ang costume ni Darna. Kahit spoof lang. Thank you Banana Sundae. Kala ko binibiro niyo lang ako eh. Seryoso pala kayo," Mendiola wrote.

"Sa mga magagalit, sumusunod lang po ako sa utos ng director ko. Kalma," she added.

Mendiola is reportedly one of the actresses being considered to play the superhero in a new movie adaptation of the komiks classic.

In an interview with ABS-CBN News, she said she would be honored should the role be offered to her as she has always dreamed of becoming an "action star."
