After releasing their latest behind-the-scenes video from the set of the upcoming Mars Ravelo's Darna: The TV Series last month, JRB Creative Production finally released the first teaser trailer for the much anticipated Pinoy superhero series last December 18. The series, which stars Jane De Leon, is based on the fictional Filipino comics superhero created by the “King of Philippine Komiks” Mars Ravelo and artist Nestor Redondo. Mars Ravelo is also the artist behind iconic comic book characters like Captain Babell, Flash Bomba, Maruja, and Lastikman, among many others.
In the recently released 45-second trailer, Jane (as Narda) is shown accepting the magical stone that transforms her into Darna from her mother Leonor Custodio (played by Iza Calzado), a warrior from another planet and the first Darna. Leonor will also be the one preparing Narda to be the next protector of humankind. The trailer also introduces the character of Joshua Garcia who plays a police officer in the show. Although yet to shown as Darna’s nemesis Valentina in the series, Janella Salvador is shown as Narda’s friend in the trailer.
Mars Ravelo's Darna: The TV Series is set to be released in 2022. Directed by Chito Roño, it stars Jane De Leon, Janella Salvador, Joshua Garcia, Iza Calzado, Zaijian Jaranillo
