Months after Angel Locsin pulled out of Star Cinema's upcoming Darna movie due to medical reasons, the Internet is still abuzz with rumors on who will replace her as the beloved Pinay superheroine.
The answer is still up in the air, but people have been tagging the ladies whom they think are worthy of swallowing the mahiwagang bato and wearing Darna's iconic two-piece costume. In recent weeks however, the battle for the coveted role has been reduced to a three-way bout between Kapamilya hotties Coleen Garcia, Jessy Mendiola, and Nadine Lustre.
And just yesterday, Jessy gave us an awesome glimpse of how she'd look like if ever she'll be the chosen one, posting these photos on her Instagram account @senorita_jessy:
No doubt, Jessy looked absolutely glorious in that costume. But is she really the next Darna? That’s the uncertain part.
According to the photos' captions, Jessy was only wearing the costume as part of a skit on ABS-CBN's gag show Banana Sundae.
"Disclaimer: *Ito ay pawang katatawanan lamang, trabaho lang po. Walang personalan.* Masaya nako kasi nabigyan ako ng pagkakataon masuot ang costume ni Darna. Kahit spoof lang," writes the pretty mestiza and this year's Tanduay calendar girl.
Meanwhile Erik Matti, the director of the superhero film, allegedly teased netizens on the identity of the next Darna when he posted this photo on Instagram recently.
Though it came with no captions, people who have seen the photo immediately speculated that, based on the length of the hair and shape of the lips, indeed it's going to be Jessy.
