HBO Max is slowly but surely becoming the streaming home for DC, as countless projects are entering some form of development for the streamer. The studio is looking to develop multiple films based on DC Comics characters, such as Batgirl that has been busy filming in Glasglow. The upcoming roster looks to be expanding once more as the iconic Wonder Twins are set to make their film debut on Warner Bros. go-to streamer.
The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Black Adam writer Adam Sztykiel has been tapped to write and direct a solo film on the popular characters. Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen of Temple Hill are set to produce the project. For those unfamiliar with the duo, Zan and Jayna are alien twins who made their debut on Hanna-Barbera’s Super Friends animated series alongside Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman before eventually making their way to the comics. The twin’s iconic phrase “Wonder Twin Power, activate” allows Jayna to turn into any animal while Zan can take the form of water.
Plot details on the film remain under wraps and no casting on the twins has been made just yet. It’s also unknown if the film will take place within the greater DC Extended Universe but here’s hoping. There is also no word on if the Wonder Twins monkey, Gleek, will make an appearance but we eagerly await that confirmation. It’s also unclear what direction the project may take given the character’s history.
