Maggie & Jake Gyllenhaal To Be “The Wonder Twins”

August 31, 2007

Looks like Maggie Gyllenhall may become the superhero queen! Maggie, who has taken over Katie Holmes role as Rachel Dawes in Batman, The Dark Knight, has been approached to play one half of The Wonder Twins in the Justice League of America movie, due out in 2010. Maggie’s brother Jake Gyllenhaal would play the other twin.

The Wonder Twins, Zan and Jayna, are teenage alien superheroes who are sidekicks to the Super Friends, from planet Exxor (or Exor) who cal call on their powers when they are together by saying “Wonder Twin powers, activate!�?. See photos and video of the Wonder Twins below. In the early 1990’s The Wonder Twins were revamped for a more modern audience. See photos and video below.

The Wonder Twins’ powers are:

* Zan can transform into any form of water, including liquid, mist, steam, or, perhaps most usefully, any kind of functioning ice structure. By combining with already-existing water, Zan could also increase his mass or volume in the water form chosen. In addition, he could transform himself into weather patterns involving water, such as a blizzard, a monsoon, or a typhoon.

* Jayna can transform into any animal, whether real, mythological, or indigenous to Earth or to some other planet, like Beast Boy. She does need to know the name of the animal in order to assume its form, as she would turn into whatever animal she named.

I think it will be interesting to Maggie and Jake Gyllenhaal play The Wonder Twins, never mind work together in a movie. Maggie and Jake are both talented actors so it will be interesting and amusing, especially seeing Jake as a Superhero!

Other names rumored to star in the film include Ryan Reynolds as The Flash, Laurence Fishburne as The Martian Manhunter, Tom Welling as Superman and Ben Stiller as Batman.

Isn’t it crazy that we are starting to talk about movies due out in 2010? Time flies!
