What could have been? Other fans' pick for Darna role


Posted at May 30 2017 08:02 PM

Liza Soberano may have been confirmed as Darna but that doesn't stop fans from imagining their idols wearing the superhero's iconic costume. From Nadine Lustre to Pia Wurtzbach, we've compiled a list (in no particular order) of the actresses fans wanted to play the Mars Ravelo character based on various online polls.

1. Nadine Lustre

The "Till I Met You" star can definitely rock the Darna costume, no problem. >

2. Pia Wurtzbach

The winner of the 2015 Miss Universe pageant has said she would love to play the role. Maybe for another adaptation in the future?

3. Maja Salvador

A fun and quirky Darna played by the "Wildflower" star would be a refreshing sight.

4. Sarah Geronimo

She playfully quipped that she doesn't have the apt bust size for the role, but many of her fans seem to disagree. Or at the very least, don't care about that aspect of Darna.

5. Julia Montes

The "Doble Kara" actress will be a good fit for a darker take on the Darna mythos.

6. Sarah Lahbati

Gorgeous and young, need fans say more? She may have yet to prove her acting chops but a Darna role in the future might be the big break she needs.

7. Arci Munoz

The "Can't We Be Friends" star has been a consistent name on the polls --and for good reason.

8. Bea Alonzo

The more youthful Darna Star Cinema seems to have planned doesn't fit the "A Love to Last" actress so maybe she can suit up for another time.

9. Yassi Pressman

The "Ang Probinsyano" star has been on a roll as of late. But whether she has the star power to headline her own movie remains to be seen.
