Bretman Rock turned up on social media yesterday, October 27, wearing the iconic red two-piece superhero suit (complete with a gold disc belt!) for Halloween and fans are just loving it! The short video had him sashaying in the street with wind-blown hair for added effect. Bretman's Instagram caption reads, "This year I wanted to pay tribute to my Filipino superhero—Darna. Growing up I watched all of her shows and movies and I have always identified with her because she's a bad bitch and she swallows balls. Tag a Filipino and I bet they know who this bitch is."
In a new Instagram post showing off the whole costume, Bretman writes, "A picture of a strong Filipino woman."
According to a follow-up Twitter post, Bretman says that Liza, who's playing Darna in the Star Cinema reboot, liked it too. "Our new Darna also approves... I covered it because I didn't post that pic yet."
As for the upcoming Darna movie, Liza last talked about it on October 1, when she revealed that she had already shot scenes as Narda, but did not say if she had donned the costume. Regine Velasquez also said during her welcome press conference for ABS-CBN that she is willing to shout "Darna!" for the movie. ICYDK, Regine recorded the superhero's transformation shout for Marian Rivera and Angel Locsin's versions.
