Just like many Darna fans, Bianca Gonzalez is also saddened to hear that Angel Locsin will no longer play the iconic Pinay superheroine, which will be made into a film under Star Cinema.
Last March 20, ABS-CBN released an official statement saying that the network and Angel have agreed that the actress will no longer portray the role in favor of her health.
In a tweet last Saturday, March 25, Bianca said that it is “unfortunate” Angel will not reprise the role of Darna.
Really unfortunate that Angel will not be able to play Darna, kasi siya talaga si Darna, pero bagay din sina Sarah G or Nadine L sa role. ????— Bianca Gonzalez (@iamsuperbianca) March 25, 2017
In another tweet, the TV host said that either Nadine Lustre or Sarah Geronimo will be perfect for the part.
She justified this by saying that apart from being good actresses, Sarah and Nadine are Pinay beauties and have the X-factor for the role.
Sarah and Nadine are Pinay beauties, may X and oomph factor, act well, pwede mag action. Sino nga kaya si Darna?? ????https://t.co/AMH3GrKtAS— Bianca Gonzalez (@iamsuperbianca) March 25, 2017
A netizen teased Bianca that she could portray the role too, but she immediately dismissed the suggestion.
The TV host cited these reasons: she does not act, she's way past the age limit, and she has no “boobs.”
Meanwhile, in a separate interview, Sarah suggested that she does not fit the role.
Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach is another popular choice to play Darna, but she indicated that ABS-CBN has other plans for her.
Other actresses being considered for the Darna role are Maja Salvador, Liza Soberano, and Julia Montes.
ABS-CBN has yet to announce the name of the actress to don the red superhero costume.
