After the surprising announcement of Liza Soberano that she has begged off the role of the iconic heroine, fans have been picking their favorites to play the role of “Darna.”

Among those name being screamed by fans is Maine Mendoza. AlDub and Maine fans have been nominating the Kapuso “Phenomenal star”’ for the role.

Maine’s Talent manager Rams David spoke up to put an end to the fans’ request. Although he didn’t turn down the possibility of the idea, Rams admitted that it’s quite difficult.

Rams told Pep, “Parang masarap lang isipin, pero hindi yata. Sa ABS yun, e, ‘di ba? Parang ang hirap naman.”

“Ang daming girls sa ABS. Sana, doon sila makahanap. Maraming magaganda, magagaling, at deserving din for the role,” he added.

Rams gave the last decision to Maine. He said, “How I wish, si Marian nag-Darna. Pero siyempre, si Maine ang sasagot niyan. Hindi ko katawan ‘yan.”

Marian Rivera, who played the role of Darna in the TV adaptation of GMA Network which aired from August 2009- February 2010, is also a celebrity managed by Rams.

Despite the near impossibility of Maine playing “Darna”, Rams assured the fans of Maine that movies will be lined up for their favorite star this year.

Rams even said that not only one movie but maybe two are in the works for Maine to finish this year.

A sequel to the 2018 Metro Manila Filmfest entry “Jak Em Popoy, The Puliscredibles” is already confirmed.

Meanwhile, another Kapuso star, Sanya Lopez, also trended online after fans said that with her built and looks, she would look perfect for the Filipino heroine.
