Nadine Lustre Tries the Iconic Darna Shout


“Darna” had been a part of every Filipino households for so many years. It is actually a fictional Filipino comic’s superhero that was created by writer Mars Ravelo and artist Nestor Redondo. It was on May 13, 1950, when it had its first appearance in “Pilipino Komiks” by Ace Publications, Inc. Darna’s origin starts when a deceased extraterrestrial warrior had magically manifested through a woman from Earth known as Narda. As Narda swallows the white magical stone and shouts “Darna!” she will immediately transform into a mighty, beautiful, and gorgeous warrior.

She was considered as a Filipino cultural icon, known by her distinctive and iconic costume, a red brassiere with gold stars on it, with a red helmet cap with a ruby, encrusted gold winged medallion on her long curly black hair, gold powerful bracelets, gold medallion belt with a loincloth at the middle and an almost knee-high red boots. As Liza Soberano withdraws on the Darna project, there was a new search for the next actress to portray the role of the iconic heroine. Some of the famous celebrities who expressed their interests towards the role are Pia Wurtzbach, Catriona Gray, Sanya Lopez, Janella Salvador, Yassi Pressman while Angel Locsin, Kathryn Bernardo, Maja Salvador, and Jessy Mendiola commented that the role was not meant for them.


It was just recently when a video of Nadine Lustre went viral on different social media platforms. She made the video in the middle of the search for the next actress to get the Darna project. On the video, she amazed her fans and supporters as she did the famous line of Darna when she transforms from her alter-ego Narda to a mighty, beautiful warrior, Darna. Even the renowned director Erik Matti himself rooted the actress to be the next Darna as he described her being sultry and very Filipina.

Donnalyn Bartolome helped Nadine to spoof the scene. They even used some special effects on the video to make it more convincing. People could not help it but be amazed by her reenactment of Darna’s famous lines. Will she be the next artist to fly as the superheroine Darna?
