HBO Max Cancels “Wonder Twins” Movie

That Hashtag Show is reporting that HBO Max has cancelled the live-action “Wonder Twins” project. The report claims that the crew received word this week that the film was scrapped.

It was only a couple of weeks ago that The Hollywood Reporter announced that actors KJ Apa and Isabel May had been cast as Zan and Jayna for the movie, which was to be based on the characters from the 1970s “Super Friends” cartoons.

With their catch-cry “Wonder Twin Powers, Activate!” Jayna would be able to turn into any animal lifeform required, while Zan could take on any type of water-based shape.

No official announcement has been made by HBO Max or Warner Bros. as yet.

Good. Wb needs to get their house in order and this is a good start. Now let’s dump jj abrams/his film and the idiotic idea of murdering a baby kal el in flash.

I’m not surprised by this news. Truth is I really didn’t think it would go far if it ever did get made. I wasn’t really interested to begin with. How about a Brandon Routh Superman series on HBOmax instead of Wonder Twins? I’m sure that there would be an audience for that series. 🙂

I gotta be honest. I’m not bothered by this cancellation. WB should get their priorities straight first. They need a clear plan first.

Not surprising. Looks like Zavlaav is cleaning house. I really like that he wants to focus on Superman who has been “languishing” in his terms. Maybe these characters would work but after the universe is established/fixed, but I only see it working as a kid’s movie directly marketed to kids.

The entertainment industry in general is trying too hard to pander to my demographic, the Generaion Xers. The Force Awakens and The Rise of Skywalker were stuffed with visual and plot references to the first trilogy, at the expense of continuing the story in an original or meaningful way. Ready Player One was one long Easter Egg for anyone who grew up with the Atari 2600. (Even the book didn’t criticize the mentality of memorizing entire movie scripts without understanding what the movies were trying to say.) A Wonder Twins movie would have been just more of the cynicism. While… Read more »
