The newest actress to portray the iconic superheroine Darna, Jane De Leon, just paid tribute to all the actresses who have played the role throughout the years in an Instagram post in commemoration of International Women’s Day.
Her post included photos of Nanette Medved-Po, Vilma Santos, Anjanette Abayari, Sharon Cuneta, Regine Velasquez, Angel Locsin, Marian Rivera, and Liza Soberano, who was supposed to star in the upcoming Darna remake before withdrawing and being replaced by Jane.

“I respect and salute all these women (and to all the Darnas before them) who became a symbol of a strong and independent Filipina. The voice of their generation who have been continuously doing their part as superheroes behind the costume through their individual achievements, efforts, and advocacies to help humanity and nature in general. You are all and will always be an inspiration today and onwards,” Jane wrote.
The upcoming film is already in production under the direction of Jerrold Tarog. It has yet to be known when it will premiere.
