DC tried to bring a lot of focus on the less known characters. The CW’s Arrowverse is an example of that because they developed shows focusing on Green Arrow (who isn’t really a less-known character but still never made an appearance on the big screen), Batwoman, Naomi, Black Lightning, Stargirl, etc.
Now, movies centered on Batgirl and Blue Beetle are in active development, and some earlier reports were even saying that Hourman and Zatanna were also set for their own projects. DC really wants the fans to show some love to other heroes that aren’t Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and other most-known members of the Justice League.
Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, DC is developing another movie — Wonder Twins. Never heard of them? Wonder Twins are extraterrestrial brother and sister Zan and Jayna, the pair that can activate their superpowers by touching hands and saying “Wonder Twin powers, activate!” in unison.
Created by Norman Maurer, William Hanna, and Joseph Barbera, Wonder Twins first appeared in The All-New Super Friends Hour animated series in 1977, and they debuted in comic books in Super Friends #7 in October of the same year. They also appeared in the animated series Teen Titans Go! and the live-action TV series Smallville. So now, it’s time for a live-action movie, which is set to be released exclusively on HBOMax.
THR reported that Adam Sztykiel was hired to write and direct the movie. He recently worked as a writer on the DCEU movie Black Adam starring Dwayne Johnson, which is set to be released next July. It’s unknown if Wonder Twins will be a part of the DC Extended Universe as well.
Not much is known about the Wonder Twins movie at this point. While we are waiting for more info, we can only say: Wonder Twin power, activate!
