It was revealed on Monday during an interview with ABS-CBN's MJ Felipe that the actress' health was the reason she wouldn't be reprising the role.
Malou Santos, Star Cinema managing director, had the following to say about the news;
"Sobrang nalungkot kasi nung una, nung nalaman namin na mayroon siyang problema sa likod, sinabihan na namin siya na she cannot play Darna. But, because deep in our hearts na siya lang ang pwedeng maging Darna, we gave her the chance and she promised to do the therapy na magpapagaling siya para sa kanyang likod,"
The President and CEO of ABS-CBN also chimed in and assured Locsin's fans not to worry and that she would be appearing in other projects.
"We were very sad and disappointed about this latest development but, of course, 'yung safety and health ni Angel is our No. 1 priority. She's still one of our biggest stars so marami pa siyang gagawin sa ABS-CBN bilang isang Kapamilya," he said to address fans' concerns.
Star Cinema Driector Erik Matti confirmed that everyone's first priority is Locsin's welfare.
"Okay naman si Angel ngayon. It's just that 'yung project kasi entails a lot of physical requirement from the actor. There's going to be harness, a lot of flight. Medyo ayaw din naming mag-risk kasi kawawa siya," Maddi said in disappointment.
Angel Locsin herself had this to say:
"Kailangan ko lang isipin ang buhay ko muna, kasi hindi po ako pinayagan ng doktor ko. Pero I tried, ABS-CBN tried, pero may mga bagay na kailangang i-let go para sa mas makakabuti. Ako tanggap ko na. Sana maintindihan din ng mga tao na hindi ko na magagawa ang Darna,"
Locsin says she has accepted that she her current physical state can no longer play the role of Darna.

Locsin continues with a direct message for her fans:
"Sana maintinidhan niyo kami, hindi po madali. Alam kong nilaban niyo ito pero kailangan na siguro natin talaga na harapin ang katotohanan at mag-move on sa magandang mangyayari. So maraming, maraming salamat. 'Di ko makakalimutan ang suportang ibinigay niyo sa akin at suporahan natin ang susunod na magiging Darna,"
