I had to look back at a previous article where I wrote “imagine a Wonder Twins movie, that’ll never happen”, well, according to THR, we’re in fact, getting a Wonder Twins film. The movie from DC has Adam Sztykiel attached to write and direct. It’ll forego theaters and head straight to HBO Max. Sztykiel comes from Black Adam, so DC knows his style and pedigree. The Wonder Twins is a property that hasn’t seen a live-action adaptation in movies, but it follows the two alien siblings Zan and Jayna. Most people know them from their appearances in Hanna Barbera cartoons like The All-New Super Friends Hour.
The characters are going from the butts of jokes to the big screen. Their powers are that Jayna can turn into any animal and Zan can turn into water. The plot description for the movie is under wraps.
We’ll have to keep you updated as this story develops including casting and release date information down the line. DC recently released their sizzle reel for their 2022 slate of films. It includes The Batman, The Flash, Aquaman & The Lost Kingdom, and Black Adam. It finally looks like the Warner Bros owned company is finding its own way after trying and failing to emulate what Marvel had done with their universe of films.
We’ll have to see how The Wonder Twins fares on HBO Max.
