- Erik sees Nadine Lustre as potential actress to portray Darna aside from Liza
Liza Soberano’s withdrawal from the ‘Darna’ role sent a buzz on the online world as to who will be the next actress to portray the iconic superheroine as replacement to Liza.
Many netizens have shared their picks on who could be the next Darna.
Even Erik Matti, the previous director of the Darna movie, who was replaced by Jerrold Tarog after giving up the project due to creative differences with Star Cinema, has shared his choice of actress that he thinks is fit for the role.
In his interview with Ricky Lo of the Philippine Star, he stated, “I really feel that Liza would have been a fresh and exciting Darna. She’s young and embodies a lot of potential to create a modern take for this classic superhero character.”
He then revealed his choice and explained why he chose her to be the next actress to play the role of Darna.
“After her, I only see Nadine Lustre so far as someone who can be Darna. Very sultry. She has a lot of female sensuality and at the same time still looks tough and very Filipina. The key to casting Darna has always been someone who can look plain and ordinary in her Narda alter ego but can be tough, spunky, and can be very sexy as well when she transforms to Darna. Nadine can look all of that.”
In the recent interview with Nadine, she expressed her sincere thanks to her fans for their support. She also pointed out that the Darna role should be given to someone ‘deserving’ and could really give justice to the iconic role.
Will Nadine be the next to wear the legendary superheroine costume?
Aside from Nadine, fans throw names of their favorite artists to be the next Darna like Kathryn Bernardo, Maja Salvador, and Pia Wurtzbach who confirmed that she is willing to audition for the role.
