Can Jessy Mendiola be the next Darna?

It’s a definite yes for graphic artist Chovelasarts, who just reimagined the 26-year-old actress as the iconic superhero in her latest artwork that she posted on Instagram last Thursday, April 4. “[Jessy] as Darna, coz why not?,” wrote the illustrator in her caption.

Jessy, who was once rumored to portray Darna for its millennial reboot, was seemingly flattered by the thought. In her brief reply, the Stranded star gave her thanks to Chovelasarts for even considering her as a contender for the role.    

With Liza Soberano’s shocking withdrawal from the project due to health reasons, there’s been a renewed interest on which star is set to be the next Darna. Nadine Lustre, Maja Salvador, and Pia Wurtzbach are all being vied by fans to replace the Alone/Together actress, though ABS-CBN and Star Cinema have yet to find their new lead, according to a joint statement.
