Fans of Liza Soberano as well as the Pinay superhero Darna could not wait to see the movie adaptation come to life on the big screen as director Erik Matti revealed that they have already started filming some of the scenes from the film.
In a report by Push, the director gave hints about Liza’s Darna costume which he described as ‘more of a warrior’ contrary to the past Darna costumes he referred to as bikini-like.
He said: “It’s more towards a fighter, a savior, a defender, Hindi naman pwedeng naka-leggings si Darna. We didn’t think of (conservative.) We only thought of what’s good for the role. Of course, with all the gender sensitivity now, we have designed something that is more of a warrior, more of utilitarian costume. Dati kasi bikini na parang weird din minsan, itatanong mo sa sarili mo kung bakit ‘yung superhero naka-bikini’ di ba?”
Despite rumors of the film, being shelved, the director said that the movie will push through.
“Ang dami nang nangyari so I am shocked that every now and then, may balitang hindi matutuloy or nagbitiw ako. Unless I am fired, I am very much still into Darna,” he added.
