Angel Locsin as Darna
MANILA, PHILIPPINES - Angel Locsin will fly again as the iconic superheroine Darna in a movie she described as a first in Philippine cinema in terms of scale.
The 29-year-old actress, who first played the Mars Ravelo-created character in 2005, confirmed on Thursday, June 26, 2014, that she will reprise the coveted role in a Star Cinema-produced film.
The actress turned emotional over coming full circle, saying the Darna character has changed her life since she first wore the iconic winged headdress and gold-and-red battle gear.
"Ang laki ng respeto ko kay Darna. Iningatan ko si Darna noong ginagawa ko palang siya. And kahit noong hindi ko na siya ginagawa, isinapuso ko talaga si Darna. Pasasalamat na rin ito sa mga tao dahil dito nag-boom ‘yung career ko. Nakilala ako, nagkaroon ako ng magandang trabaho, nabubuhay ko nang komportable ang pamilya ko", Gel said.
The movie will be directed by Erik Matti.
