Super B to Darna? Ruffa Mae Quinto reacts to fans’ request

  • After Liza Soberano’s exit, fans share their picks for the next ‘Darna’
  • From Nadine Lustre to Maine Mendoza to Maja Salvador to Rufa Mae Quinto, fans are sharing the actresses they want for the iconic role

ABS-CBN and Star Cinema are now looking for a new actress to play ‘Darna’ in the upcoming film, and the people browsing the Internet have a lot of ideas. Pretty much every hot young star is now being considered by netizens for the iconic role, once played by the likes of Vilma Santos and Angel Locsin.

Since Liza Soberano announced her withdrawal from the Pinoy superheroine movie, netizens on social media, especially on Twitter started to tag the celebrity of their choice to play ‘Darna.’ Aside from popular choices Kathryn Bernardo, Liza Soberano, and Julia Barretto, some netizens have peculiar choices like Rufa Mae Quinto.

On Twitter, a netizen posted her nomination for Rufa Mae Quinto. The comedienne replied, “Wow go go go super D haha.”

In 2001, Rufa Mae Quinto instantly captured the moviegoers’ fancy when she played the role of a bimbo named ‘Booba’ in the mega-hit movie of the same title. Suddenly, the word “booba” was in everybody’s tongue to refer to a female who is mentally-challenged, or whose brains are in her boobs. In 2002, Rufa Mae went super comic as Booba, going ala-Wonder Woman in another hilarious movie: ‘Super B,’ Neo Films’ official entry to the Manila Film Festival.

Until now, ‘Super B’ is still popular with millennials as some scenes from the movie are still being used as memes on social media.
