LOOK: Liza Soberano trains for ‘Darna’
MANILA, Philippines – In the comics and onscreen, all a human girl has to do to transform into Darna is swallow a magical stone and shout the name – but in real life it takes much more than that, at least according to Liza Soberano’s latest Instagram post.
In her June 6 post, the actress showed snippets of her training routine: which includes boxing, working the battle ropes, and doing planks.
“If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you,” she wrote in the caption, which she ended with the hashtag “#DarnaTraining.”
Liza is playing the iconic superhero in an upcoming film directed by Erik Matti under Star Cinema. She took over the role from Angel Locsin, who played Darna in the 2005 TV series aired on GMA.
The role has been held by some of local showbiz’s top actresses, including Angel, Marian Rivera, Lorna Tolentino, and Vilma Santos.
Despite rumors of the upcoming Darna film being shelved, Erik himself confirmed in a tweet that it is pushing through.
A release date for the film has yet to be announced. – Rappler.com
