As per the revelation of the director, he said that the costume will be based on the comic books.
He shared, “I think bottom line is Darna has to be presented, after 23 to 24 years of not having Darnaon the screen, I think she should be presented in the best superhero look possible and whatever it is that we love about the Darna costume—how was she envisioned in the comic book—I think that’s what we are trying to achieve.”
Aside from making it beautiful, it will also be”functional”.
“Definitely it will be modern, contemporary, progressive kind of costume for our Darna. And I’ve seen what’s on the net na. I’ve been tagged by everyone actually. I collected all of those pictures but we are going with a totally new and different [one]. We wanted a costume that is utilitarian, functional but at the same time can logically come out from Narda to Darna. That’s where we are coming from. It’s more than just aesthetic. It’s more than just cosmetic. It’s more than just trying to be sexy. It really should be the functional characteristic of a costume for a superhero,” he said.
And on choosing Liza as the new Darna, it was accordingly the choice of the whole Darna team.
“We all unanimously decided Liza being Darna. She’s fresh, she’s young, she could grow into the role. It’s like a breakout role, actually breaking out role niya from a sweet young teeny actress, she’s slowly going to graduate into becoming a serious actor. And I think parang tama lang ‘to for her. Remember it is going to be a franchise, she is not just going to come out in one,” he indicated.
