Since it has been announced that Angel Locsin will reprise her role as Darna, the Filipino's take on Wonder Woman, many were overjoyed that the actress accepted the offer again.
She has been cast already for the Erik Matti-directed film but had to pull out of the project when she developed a disc bulge on her spine while training.
While it has put the film on hold, other Kapamilya actresses have been speculated to take over her role such as Jessy Mendiola, Nadine Lustre, Liza Soberano, and many others.
Now that Angel is getting better through rehabilitation and taking various treatments, she has started to get back in shape.
Recently, comedian and talent manager Ogie Diaz posted a selfie on his Instagram account where he let his followers guess who was the beautiful actress working out at Billy James Fitness Center.
It is known that Billy James Fitness Center caters mostly to celebrities, such as Coleen Garcia, Tom Rodriguez, and Sanya Lopes.
In a loose red shirt and white cap, Angel can be seen doing a lunge while the titular fitness instructor supports her.
Prior to Ogie's post, Billy James has posted a cartoon version of Darna on his Instagram page which hinted that he has already been working with her.
He captioned the week-old post that everyone should look out for Angel's transformation as she gets back on her skimpy red suit.
Angel was catapulted into superstardom when she played Darna in GMA's 2005 series.
The network had another run with the Filipina superhero but Marian Rivera took over the reins in 2009 since Angel has already moved to ABS-CBN.
Despite Marian's efforts, majority of Filipinos still believe that only Angel can pull off the role. Here is a clip of Angel as Darna, battling her hardest nemesis - Black Darna, the evil version of herself.
