KJ Apa ( Riverdale) and Isabel May( 1883) were recently discovered to be the main actors in a DC comic adaptation of Wonder Twins. However, the project has been canceled. Variety reports that HBO Max has rejected plans to adapt the story.
The exact reasons behind this decision are not known. It is believed that the merger between WarnerMedia & Discovery caused the cancellation. It is about saving around three billion dollars according to David Zaslav, Warner Bros’ new President and CEO. Discovery, announced. He also reduced the budget for HBO Max productions down to $35 million. The Wonder Twins adaptation was projected at $75 million.
CNN+, a news streaming service that was in operation for almost a month, was also one of the victims. TBS and TNT also saw savings, meaning that they will no longer produce fictional content. TBS will continue to focus on sitcom reruns while TNT will be focusing on sports. The group will be giving a new home to the science fiction series Snowpiecer , which was originally extended before season 3 began.
The Wonder Twins, alien-shapedshifting siblings, are a refuge for Earth’s homeless. Jayna is capable of taking on the form any animal but Zan can transform into water. Adam Sztykiel was previously a screenwriter for Black Adam, which is due to be released theatrically on October 21. He should also direct the film. Filming was originally planned for this summer.
