Since Angel Locsin had already declined to reprise the role of Darna due to health reasons, netizens went agog  for the past few days on who is the rightful lady to wear that two-piece sexy outfit and defender of justice.

Star Cinema/ABS-CBN who has the exclusive right to produce the said movie is still mum on who they feel can replace Locsin. But of course, the network is extra careful in naming one. Although big names have been floating around, like Pia Wurztbach and Iza Calzado. Both are good choices, but Pia is not a contract artist of ch. 2. She may ask for sky-rocketing talent fee, especially that she has a crown to protect. While Ms. Iza, her age might work against her.

So, let’s try to enumerate some considerations to ponder on how to choose the right Darna. Or you can make your own list for scrutiny.

  1. Definitely, she must be an exclusive artist of the network, Since it is under Star Cinema, the lucky girl must be visible and under contract with the station. It would be futile if they get an artist outside their station because they have a good list of possible candidates. And besides, it would be more expensive to get an outsider.
  2. Based on the past films, all of the stars who donned that red and gold sexy outfit must be young. So, she must be in her late teens or early 20s.
  3. She must be a Filipina beauty and unadulterated looks; it means her beauty is natural and unenhanced, deserving to be named Narda.
  4. Since she is a probins’yana, she must possess good Filipino values.
  5. She must be a strong young woman who has a powerful personal conviction of what she believed in, but with a kind heart.
  6. On the other hand, she can equally represent the true beauty of a Filipina and can be a role model among the millennials.
  7. A new face is possible to give the role a fresh look and a better opportunity for any aspirant.
  8. And lastly, three kapamilya names can possibly be in the shortlist, namely, Nadine Lustre (young and sexy; her Filipina beauty is a plus factorand James Reid could just be her perfect leading man), Maja Salvador (sexy and strong-willed, not to mention her acting capability) and Arci Muñoz (sexy and sporty).

Now…who’s your bet?
