The Wonder Twins are back for The Wonder Twins movie! The Wonder Twins HBO Max movie is a live-action version of the DC universe’s favorite siblings, Zan and Jayna. Actors KJ Apa will star as Zan, and Isabel May will be Jayna.
The New Zealand actor KJ Apa is very well known for his role as red-haired Archie Andrews in the CW show’s dark and twisted take on the original comics in Riverdale. The new dad has also starred in other films such as A Dog’s Purpose, Songbird, and The Hate U Give.
You might know actor Isabel May as Elsa Dutton from the prequel to Paramount Networks hit Western Yellowstone called 1883. 1883 follows the Dutton family on a journey west through the Great Plains toward the last bastion of uncolonized America and stars Tim McGraw, Sam Elliot, and Faith Hill. May has also starred in a recurring role on the Big Bang Theory prequel Young Sheldon. She also starred as Katie in the Netflix high school sitcom Alexa and Katie.
The Wonder Twin’s History
According to the Wonder Twins DC database, twins Zan and Jayna were sent to Earth by their father from their planet Exxor. Their father sent them to live with the Justice League, where they become informally trained by the heroes. The reason has never been revealed why the twin’s father, a friend of DC “leader” Superman, sent his children to Earth.
The Wonder Twins, Zan and Jayna, have special powers giving them the ability to change their shape. Jayna can transform into any animal, while Zan can transform into water. There’s one condition to their powers; the twins can only transform by fist-bumping while saying their iconic line, “Wonder Twin Powers, Activate!”
