As we know, HBO Max has released some great content based on DC comics so far. Meanwhile, most of the fans are waiting for the movie Batgirl starring Leslie Grace, but there’s another film coming to HBO Max soon: a live-action adaptation The Wonder Twins. The film project was announced earlier this year and now DC and HBO have officially found their Wonder Twins cast. According to reports from Deadline, KJ What and Isabel May will each play the two main characters, Zan and Jayna.
Until now, not much is known about the plot and details of this film, but it is known that they have super abilities. Jayna can transform into any animal while Zan is a shapeshifter. However, their powers can only be activated when they touch each other.
This couple was introduced in the animated series The All-New Super Friends Hour to help meet the needs of a younger demographic. The twins later made their comic debut in the series Super Friends in 1977 before being introduced to DC just a short time later. The superhero twin pair has also appeared in many other shows such as Teen Titans Go!, Smallvilleand The Flash.
KJ Apa is best known for his role in the CW series, Riverdale in which he has played the main character, Archie Andrews for the past six seasons. What has that incredible childish charm to her that has been fully displayed in Riverdale. That alone makes him perfect for playing an absurd character like Zan. Have you ever been involved in several films like Songbird, The Hate U Give, A Dog’s Purposeand I Still Believe. On the other hand, Isabel May has appeared in series such as the prequel series Yellowstone – 1883 , Alexa & Katieand Young Sheldon.
HBO Max is quite successful with their DC owned projects like Doom Patrol, Peacemakerand Harley Quinn. Having said that, it will be very interesting to see what they have in store for this arguably the most absurd couple in the universe. The Wonder Twins will be written by the co-writer of Black Adam and Rampage, Adam Sztykiel. The film is also important for Sztykiel as he will be making his directorial debut with this project.
