The new Darna Costume will undergo revision
The new Darna costume will be revised because of one important reason and film director Jerrold Tarog confirmed this during an interview.
This movie of the iconic Pinay superhero became much-anticipated because the preparation took so long and there had been several changes that happened. First, the role was offered to Angel Locsin, who already played Darna in a Kapuso series. However, she had to consider her health because of her back injury and so the role was given to Liza Soberano. Everyone thought that it will push through but Erik Matti, who was the first director of the movie resigned due to creative differences.
Then, Direk Jerrold entered the scene as the new director. However, another problem arose. The finger injury of Liza became a hindrance when she was shooting for the movie. She had to give the iconic role because of her health. Auditions were conducted to find the new Darna. Jane de Leon was fortunate enough to be chosen to give life to the role.
Now the fans are anticipating for the movie, another conflict came into the way. Based on the article published on the site of Bandera, the new Darna costume does not have the “yes” from the family of Mars Ravelo, the creator of the Pinay superhero.
With this, Direk Jerrold said that they will have a costume change. According to the article, the production wanted to ditch the two-piece type of costume. “May mga gagawin pa kaming iba sa costumes, mas praktikal. Basta kasi mayroong design na ginawa ‘yung previous team, medyo iba ‘yung direksyon na gusto kong gawin. Kung ikukumpara doon sa nasimulan na medyo may iba lang akong gagawin,” the filmmaker said.
