Angel Locsin's "Darna" reprise OK for Marian Rivera

Kapuso star Marian Rivera denoted approval for Kapamilya actress Angel Locsin’s possible reprise of “Darna,” a role she also portrayed in 2009.

“Okay lang, ganoon naman talaga eh,” Marian told entertainment website PEP. “Nakailang ulit na rin ang Darna, ang Dyesebel, ang Captain Barbell, so ganoon talaga ang routine.”

Marian portrayed the fictional character four years after Angel did, when the latter was still in GMA-7.

On the other hand, Angel in an earlier interview said she is ready to make a return as the Filipina superheroine if Kapamilya network bosses say so.

“Natutuwa naman ako kasi nakikita ko ‘yung suporta ng mga Darna fans sa akin; ‘yung mga tao na wini-wish na sana ako pa din si Darna. So tignan natin, sabi nga nila kung sino ang mapalad sa kanya ibibigay ‘yung bato,” she said.

ABS-CBN reportedly acquired the rights of “Darna” and other Mars Ravelo masterpieces last year.
