Pinoy iconic superheroine Darna has been spotted hovering on top of several malls ahead of the highly anticipated premiere of the series “Mars Ravelo’s Darna” set on August 15.
Fan page @CertifiedKpmlya tweeted, “LOOK: From Robinsons Metro East, #Darna muling namataan sa Robinsons Place Antipolo. Sino nga ba ang hinahanap ni Darna sa Robinsons mall?”
Go Rizal also posted about the superhero sighting on Facebook. “DARNA IS HERE? TINGNAN: Spotted ang isang indibidwal na ito na naka-costume ng Darna habang nasa itaas na bahagi ng isang mall sa Antipolo, Rizal,” according to its page.
Meanwhile, Twitter user @PopeChromaticus hailed the Darna sightings as genius. He said, “The promo gimmick at Robinsons for #Darna is genius! I mean, the reference to the (debunked) encounter between Alice Dixson and the ‘taong ahas’ in one of its branches.”
Aside from appearing in Pasig and Antipolo, Darna’s silhouette was also spotted in two malls in Quezon City.
The superhero’s powerful insignia has also been making the rounds on various structures in the Metro including ABS-CBN’s ELJ Tower and transmitter, signaling the looming arrival of the much-awaited ABS-CBN Entertainment series.
Starring Jane De Leon in the titular role, “Darna” dropped its official trailer early this month, which now has over 9.3 million combined views on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube channel of ABS-CBN Entertainment.
Last Friday (July 22), the show also released another teaser announcing that its TV premiere is scheduled on August 15 (Monday) and naming cast members Iza Calzado, Janella Salvador, Joshua Garcia, Zaijian Jaranilla, Paolo Gumabao, Rio Locsin, Richard Quan, Simon Ibarra, Jeffrey Santos, Eric Fructuoso, and Levi Ignacio.
Jeric Raval, Joko Diaz, and Joem Bascon were also announced to have a special participation in the series led by the Master Director Chito S. Roño together with co-directors Avel Sunpongco and Benedict Mique.
“Mars Ravelo’s Darna” will air on Kapamilya Channel, A2Z, Jeepney TV, and TV5 and will also be available on Kapamilya Online Live, iWantTFC, and The Filipino Channel.
