“Special announcement for the vadengs: That wasn’t V’s final costume. Don’t worry. We gotchu,” she tweeted.
Netizens gave mixed reactions to the Valentina costume of the actress––most of which had been positive. Some Twitter users shared their excitement about Janella’s transformation and how perfect the actress is for the role of Valentina.
“It is always interesting and intriguing to know the character arc of a villain and an anti-hero. Janella Salvador proves that she is the best choice for Valentina in this generation. She ssslay,” Twitter user @kollenedoncillo shared.
Netizens also pointed out the chemistry of the characters between Darna, played by Jane De Leon, and Valentina. They shared how the protagonist and antagonist go so well together.
“Janella Salvador and Jane de Leon truly complement each other. Janella's tragic ice queen with a heart as Regina/Valentina, works well with Jane's charming but hesitant superhero as Narda/Darna. The contrast is amazing. For me this yin vs yang is the heart of the show,” Twitter user @AlteyuhMoves tweeted.
Meanwhile, Janella has been very vocal about how she’s been enjoying her role as Valentina. She recently did a photoshoot with Metro Magazine wherein she channeled her inner Valentina.
