Well, this 'story' gathers pace. Yesterday WDW and everyone else reported that Jake was being hotly pursued by Warner Brothers to be one of the many stars in their superhero boiler Justice League of America extravaganza, due to begin shooting in 2008. According to another rumour, it was Maggie who was approached. This is less surprising considering that she is actually starring in a superhero movie. However, they don't want Maggie on her own, they want her to form one half of the amazing and awesome Wonder Twins, the other half being - of course - Jake Gyllenhaal.
I can see their reasoning. It's been a long time since Donnie Darko and I'm sure I'm not the only one who would like to see Jake and Maggie appear together again, but these roles just sound so... I don't know how to describe them, so this is what one site has to say of the Wonder Twins:
'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.'
After seeing Jake as a Robert and a Douglas, I'm more than happy to see him as a Zan, but what would it be like to see him transformed into a 'functioning ice structure' or a weather pattern? I fear this could disguise his beauty. Maggie would clearly have to brush up on her zoological and mythological knowledge in order to transform into some interesting beasts.
I know this is all nonsense but, I have to admit, wouldn't it be fun! Also, this provides me with yet another reason for more Sporty Jake and some pictures of Jake and Maggie in mortal form.
