Angel Locsin couldn't be any happier for Jane De Leon for getting picked as the actress who will play Darna on the big screen. 

In an Instagram post by ABS-CBN Films executive Mico Del Rosario, Angel left a comment congratulating the actress for the momentous feat.

"Congratulations, Jane De Leon," she wrote. 

Jane first rose to fame as part of the all-girl group GirlTrends on It's Showtime

She then appeared in the fantaserye La Luna Sangre before snagging the role of Jericho Rosales' younger sister Maggie Bartolome on Halik

Meanwhile, Angel, first portrayed the role in a TV production from ABS-CBN's rival network.

She was the first actress chosen to play the iconic superhero in the upcoming movie but had to withdraw due to physical limitations. 

Later on, Liza Soberano, who took Angel's place following the latter's exit, similarly withdrew from the project after suffering from an injury requiring her to undergo finger surgery. 

As of writing, there is no release date yet for the Jerrold Tarog-directed film.
