The latest live-action adaptation of Darna, the iconic Filipino superheroine, has a troubled original story. The project began as a film but has gone through several actresses and directors over the years before eventually morphing into a TV series. But the new trailer for ABS-CBN’s take on the warrior woman is out — and it was apparently well worth the wait, judging from social media reactions.

Viewers praised the trailer upon its launch, noting its stunning visual effects, cinematography, and fight scenes — a rarity on Philippine television that is usually marred by cheesy plot lines and low-budget visuals, such as this unconvincingly intense scene involving a nerf gun from the drama Ika-6 na Utos

Darna, created by comic book writer Mars Ravelo and considered one of the Philippines’ most iconic superheroes, is a female warrior from the planet Marte who is channeled by Narda, a young Filipino woman, after she swallows a mystical white stone.

Social media called the show a solid springboard for relative newcomer Jane de Leon, the third actress attached to the project who joined in 2019 after Liza Soberano and Angel Locsin bowed out separately for individual injuries.

All the hype leading to this trailer makes sense. The cinematic visuals, the intense drama, the handsomely-choreographed action sequences, & the entire new vision of this new adaptation simply make Darna extra-ordinary. What a solid spring board for Jane de Leon! #DarnaTrailer pic.twitter.com/fSHB46TM9r

Super hyped-up about the fight scenes. Love the drama, the visuals,the sheer muscular intensity. You can really tell all the creative efforts poured into the project to come up w/ this level of sophistication. After 3 years, it’s finally happening for Jane de Leon. #DarnaTrailer https://t.co/6iDJGrPHJ3

Longtime Darna fans were also thrilled to see Iza Calzado don the Filipino superhero’s costume as Narda’s mother Leonor Custodio, the first Darna — giving this generation’s Narda a solid origin story. Calzado was initially cast as Darna in GMA-7’s 2005 TV version, but the role ultimately went to Angel Locsin.

Iza Calzado slay in her role as the first Darna. Look at her costume it’s so gorgeous. her powers and abilities as well. the CGI and Color Grading also amaze me. For a network with no franchise, ABS-CBN stay to its promise to be global.#DarnaTrailer pic.twitter.com/BSWvpeloF3

The universe has finally given Iza Calzado the stone to be Darna 🔥

Did y’all know Iza was rejected for the role of Darna many years ago, because they saw her as someone who didn’t fit the definition of beautiful, more specifically her body?

Now became her time!#DarnaTrailer pic.twitter.com/RxsNqjWXOR

The ABS-CBN Darna project was stuck in development hell for years. Acclaimed director Erik Matti was attached to the project for five years before leaving due to “creative differences” in 2018. He was replaced by Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral filmmaker Jerrold Tarog before exiting the project due to “scheduling conflicts” at the height of the pandemic. Chito Roño was named the new Darna director in 2021, when the project was retooled into a TV series.

First published in 1947 as the character Varga, Darna became a best-selling comic and has been turned into numerous films and TV series over the past decades.
