Cancel Culture: “Wonder Twins”

The prepping “Wonder Twins” live-action movie for DC Entertainment and HBO Max, starring KJ Apa and Isabel May as a pair of alien shape
shifting characters, scheduled to start shooting in Atlanta, Georgia July 5, 2022 for writer, director Adam Sztykiel, has now been officially canceled due an executive decision resulting from the new merger of Warner Bros with Discovery:

Apa ("Riverdale") was to play 'Zan' and Isabel May ("1883") as 'Jayna, who generate powers by touching hands with the spoken phrase
"Wonder Twin powers, activate!".

Following their animated debut in 1977, the characters would continue to appear in cartoon series "Super Friends', "The World’s Greatest Super Friends", "Super Friends: The Legendary Super Powers Show" plus a live-action appearance on The CW’s "Smallville", with 'Jayna' usually transformed into animals, while 'Zan' could change into water in any state, including solid, liquid, or gas.
