Acclaimed director Erik Matti is full of praises for our newest Darna Liza Soberano - and he won’t let bashers keep putting the actress down.
In an interview with “TV Patrol” last night, June 11, Direk Erik maintained that there’s absolutely no one else who could play Darna better than Liza can - she’s the physical embodiment of the iconic superheroine.
“She’s the perfect Darna,” the director put simply. “We need to see her in full physical form. Grabe ‘yung change from a year ago, when we started. That’s because of the dedication of Liza as well.”

Direk Erik also shared that the new Darna costume is very different from what we’ve been accustomed to in the past.
“With all the gender sensitivity now, we have designed something that is more of a warrior, more of a utilitarian costume… Dati kasi, parang bikini,” he said.
Liza was named the newest Darna last year. Apart from working on the movie, she’s also part of the primetime series “Bagani.”
