It’s final. Angel Locsin is out as “Darna” in the upcoming movie adaptation of Mars Ravelo’s famous superheroine.
The sad news was announced Monday by Star Cinema’s managing director Malou Santos, citing health reasons.
The Kapamilya actress suffered back and spine problems and had to undergo rehabilitation and therapy. Unfortunately, Locsin’s back pains recurred three weeks ago.
According to a statement issued by the ABS-CBN’s movie outfit, both camps (Locsin’s and the network) have agreed that Angel could no longer play the lead role of the upcoming movie to prioritize her health.
Although they are saddened over the new development of the movie, fans chose to shrug off their disappointment through jokes on Twitter using the hashtag #KungSiyaSiDarna, where they thought of possible scenario if the new Darna happens. And the result, Filipino humor at its finest.
Read below some funny quips from netizens regarding the Darna role:
