Two days before this announcement, the young actress set off a social media storm after officially backing out from the millennial reboot of the iconic superheroine film, citing medical reasons, particularly a finger injury that would hinder her from doing certain stunts required of the character.
Directors Jerrold Tarog and Erik Matti, Angel Locsin, and other celebrities who are currently being eyed for the role – including actresses Nadine Lustre and Kathryn Bernardo – have since aired their sentiments regarding the shocking news.
Meanwhile, with Liza’s exit, ABS-CBN and Star Cinema have begun the selection process for the new ‘Darna,’ according to a joint press statement released on Thursday, April 4.
