DC Fans Can’t Believe The Wonder Twins Movie’s Announced Budget


Earlier today it was confirmed that the wonder twins The film, itself announced for only three months, had officially been abandoned at HBO Max. Reportedly, the film was a causality of the WB-Discovery merger and was born out of the CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery’s David Zaslav wanted to cap the cost of original films for the streaming service. Zaslav apparently wants movies for HBO Max to have a maximum budget of $35 million, which the wonder twins would have exceeded forty millions. The response to the film’s cancellation didn’t exactly come as a surprise to DC fans, but the amount of money that would have been spent on the film certainly was.

Riverdale’s KJ Apa and 1883’s Isabel May were cast in the lead roles of Zan and Jayna just over a month ago with director Adam Sztykiel set to step behind the camera. In an interview May conducted right after booking the role, and literally days before it was canceled, she expressed her excitement for the role and offered some insight into the tone they were aiming for, telling Told The reading listit is The Bingeworthy Podcast: “I love discovering certain characters, so I read everything [of the comics]. I know they’re kind of the butt of the joke, sort of, but that’s what’s so fun is that you can go anywhere with them. And so I read all the comics they’re in and even watched the show [‘Super Friends’], and that’s not it, okay? It’s a different time, and we kind of do a different thing… I guess I can’t really say anything, but I think [the approach] is really unique and fun.”

Although the movie fell by the wayside, some DC fans can’t believe it was even being considered anyway, while others are disappointed it didn’t make it to the theaters. See the litany of reactions to the news below.
