- Gabbi Garcia shared a throwback photo of herself (when she was still a little girl) wearing a Darna costume via Instagram.
- Many Netizens claimed that Gabbi Garcia can best portray Darna because of her morena skin.
- Netizens thought that the next Darna should be someone who is morena.
Some Netizens chose Gabbi Garcia as an ideal fit for the vacated Darna role. The clamor started when Garcia posted a throwback photograph of hers wearing a Darna costume via her Instagram stories.
Many thought that the iconic super heroine Darna is best portrayed by someone who is morena in order to emphasize the character’s true Filipino identity and Garcia is among the many choices to pick from because of her skin.
Despite being impossible since she is a GMA-7 Kapuso Artist, Netizens still gave their support and claimed that she would be the best fit for the iconic superhero role that Liza Soberano gave up on.
Gabbi Garcia fits to be the new darna (my opinion eventhough she works at gma)

3.) GABBI GARCIA represents the millenial Darna. She’s been a Sang’gre already, so stunts and acting will never be a problem. She also has the body fitted for the Darna suit and she’s so beautiful, too.

The Darna role for its remake was first given to Angel Locsin but due to her spine injury she was not able to continue. After Angel’s exit, it was Liza Soberano who received the greatest break, however, she also decided to back out due to an injury on her finger, which hindered her from doing the needed stunts.
