The debate and talk about who should be the next Darna is still on. The netizens, fans, and even celebrities are expressing their own opinion and bet on who should take on this strong female role.
This is after previous bets, Angel Locsin and Liza Soberano backed out from doing the Star Cinema film due to health reasons.
Award-winning, and previous director of the said movie, Erik Matti has already voiced out how he only sees the Multimedia Princess Nadine Lustre as the perfect fit for that role.
He said, “Para sa akin, si Narda sa pagkakakilala natin ay ordinary siya. Ordinaryong bata na nagkaroon ng superpower. So, kailangan mo, yung casting na pag ordinaryo siya, ordinary talaga ang hitsura niya.”
“So, ang kayang maging ganoon, si Nadine. Puwede siyang ordinary na Filipina. Tapos, kapag naging superhero, puwede ring sexy na matapang, may dating, ‘di ba? ‘Yung ganoon. Wala na akong ibang naiisip, ‘yun na ‘yun. Kasi, kailangan mo rin ‘yung physical,” he further explained.
Respeto director, and also the one to direct James Reid’s Pedro Penduko: The Legend Begins, Treb Monteras was also asked by the press about the Darna role and if Nadine is ‘bagay’ in portraying that role.
Although he was a bit skeptical about answering the question. “Ibang planeta yung Darna, so hindi ko alam,” he quipped.
“But, kung ang tanong ay kung bagay ba siya, definitely, sobra siyang bagay. And actually, may isa pang comics superhero, yung Wave, yung bago ng Marvel, na si Nadine din daw ‘yung inspirasyon.
“Si Nadine kasi, superhero naman siya. Kumbaga, sa totoong buhay rin, in a way, she’s a superhero. So, bagay na bagay sa kanya.
Nadine recently won the Best Performance of an Actress in a Lead Role award from FAMAS for the movie, Never Not Love You.
