DC may have decided against a project that was announced earlier this year. A new report suggests that the planned Wonder Twins live-action movie has been canceled although it is already expected to begin production this year!

Back in February, it was revealed that a Wonder Twins film is in the works and will be streamed on HBO Max. Not surprisingly, fans were excited about the news and are already looking forward to updates on the movie. However, it looks like DC has decided to pull the plug on the project even right before production could begin.

The Hashtag Show reports that the crew had just been informed that the live-action adaptation of the Wonder Twins had been scrapped. It has not yet been revealed why the project is no longer moving forward. However, it is believed that the merger between Warner Bros. and Discovery has changed plans for several existing projects.

It was previously reported that the Wonder Twins film will be directed by Black Adam writer Adam Sztykiel, who will also work on the script. In April, it was revealed that Riverdale's KJ Apa and 1883 star Isabel May will play Zan and Jayna, respectively. The project was set to be produced by Temple Hill's Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey while the movie was looking to cast its villains before the cancellation was reported.

The Wonder Twins were first introduced in the animated television series The All-New Super Friends Hour. Jayna and Zan's powers are activated when they touch hands. Jayna can transform into any animal while Zan can become water in any state. The pair also have a pet monkey, Gleek, who helps them in their crime-fighting activities.

For now, DC has not yet confirmed that the Wonder Twins film is officially cancelled. In the meantime, production is intended to start in Atlanta, Georgia on July 5, 2022. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
