- Jerald Napoles expressed his opinion regarding the next “Darna”
- He said that there should be an audition and that GMA-7 artists must be considered
- A netizen did not like the statement of the actor and immediately rebutted him
Kapuso comedian Jerald Napoles aired his thoughts about the next actress who would portray the iconic superhero role, “Darna.”
KAMI learned that the search is one for the next “Darna,” following Liza Soberano’s much-talked-about withdrawal few days ago.
Many netizens claimed that the likes of Jessy Mendiola, Nadine Lustre, and Kathryn Bernardo are best suited for the character next to Liza.
However, for Jerald, actresses such as Sanya Lopez and Jennylyn Mercado can also be considered for the role.
He expressed that the search for the next “Darna” should not be limited to Kapamilya celebrities since there are also GMA-7 artists who are fitted to play as the said superhero.
The comedian also suggested that there must be an audition for the role so that the one who is more deserving can have a chance to “symbolize hope” for Filipinas.
“May Jennylyn Mercado pa pala!! Isa pang Reyna na karapat-dapat maging "Darna"! Ang exciting! Sana maconsider ang mga Kapuso stars!” he wrote.
“Sana magpa audition ng susunod na Darna. Di ba ang exciting nun. It symbolises hope for all Pinays in the world. Walang network network, sikat man o hindi…” he added.
Because of his statements, a netizen lambasted the actor, saying that the new movie is under Star Cinema and ABS-CBN.
The social media user also pointed out that if “Darna” is under GMA-7, the network will also not allow someone from its rival to have the important character.
“Nasa ABSCBN Star Cinema ang rights ngayon ng Darna. Bakit nila ibibigay sa GMA artist? Huy gising!” the netizen replied.
“Eto, baliktarin natin sitwasyon. Halimbawa nasa GMA ang rights ng Darna, sa tingin niyo ibibigay ng GMA yan sa artist from rival network? DIBA HINDI,” he added.
In a previous article by KAMI, Kathryn finally broke her silence about the rumors that she will replace Liza as “Darna.”
