HBO Max won’t activate The Wonder Twins‘powers after all.
A made-to-stream movie based on the iconic DC Comics duo that is no longer in development, our sister publication Diversity report. While there are many factors that lead to the decision to cancel a project, budget is arguably the primary concern; Its $75 million price tag didn’t affect Discovery CEO David Zaslav’s plan to eliminate $3 billion in costs following the company’s merger with Warner Bros.
The movie was announced just over a month ago, starring KJ Apa (Riverdale) as Zan, an alien with the ability to transform into water, and Isabel May (1883) as Jayna, his twin sister with the ability to transform into any animal. The Twins also have a pet space monkey named Gleek, but that role has yet to be cast.
Zan and Jayna have appeared in many forms over the years, both in comic books and animated series, but there have been very few iterations of the live-action. One case was found David Gallagher (7th Heaven) and Allison Scagliotti (Diary of a vampire) played them in the Season 9 episode of Smallvillewhile characters with that name also appear in the Season 1 episode of The Flash.
Are you disappointed that we won’t get an Apa-May Wonder Twins movie? Do you hope one day the characters will be treated in real-life movies? Drop a comment with your thoughts below.
