Fans of Jessy Mendiola have been clamoring for her to play the Filipino superheroine Darna for its movie remake.

Their dream finally came true! Well, at least for ABS-CBN's comedy show Banana Sundae.

Jessy dressed up as Mars Ravelo's iconic Filipina superhero for the opening production number of the show along with co-stars Aiko Climaco and Sunshine Garcia on Sunday, January 24.

They danced to a mash-up of Bonnie Tyler’s “Holding Out For A Hero” and Ariana Grande's "Break Free."

The Kapamilya actress also uploaded a selfie of her wearing the sexy costume.

Thank you @marbentalanay and JAM at @janra_ sa pagpapaganda sakin. ?????

Jessy thanked the staff of the show for letting her wear a Darna costume.

The caption for her Instagram post reads: "Disclaimer: *Ito ay pawang 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. ??? (sa mga magagalit, sumusunod lang po ako sa utos ng director ko. Kalma.) #lablablab"

In an interview with (Philippine Entertainment Portal), Jessy expressed her gratitude for fans who consistently wish for her to play the role.

"I am very flattered! And I have to be honest about it! It has been one of my dream role ever since. But when you post something online, kahit pa siguro nakatalikod ako, or nakahiga ako somewhere or kumakain ako, yun pa rin yung comment na Darna nga daw. "I am really happy and flattered that people want the role for me. I do want the role also, pero kung kanino man mapupunta yun, I’m sure naman na napag desisyunan at napag-isipan naman ng kataas-taasan yun kung sino ang karapat-dapat."

Here's Jessy, Aiko, and Sunshine's performance as Darna:
