We don’t often report on the goings on of super hero movies—that’s usually the province of our brother blog Splash Page. But when it involves our favorite sparkly vamps, we obviously have to take note.
In a new video from CollegeHumor, Nikki Reed and Peter Facinelli—clad in matching tight purple get-ups—play Wonder Twins Jayna and Zan, whom, I’m told by resident comic book dude, Josh Wigler, are “real” DC Comics heroes. In a world where Hollywood’s run out of A-list superheroes, the duo auditions to fill the well-worn spandex. (Metaphorically, of course. We don’t encourage sharing spandex. Diseases and such.) Except, well, their talents aren’t all that exciting. Zan can morph into water, and Jayna can turn into any animal, and their display of a turtle in a jar of liquid is lackluster to say the least.
Things take an even weirder turn when palpable sexual chemistry arises between Zan and Jayna: hand-holding, giggling, serenading, all that jazz. Yikes. And, unsurprisingly, by the end of the clip, we learn that the search continues for the next A-list superhero.
Peter himself directed the funny bit, and couldn’t wait to share the news on Twitter today. “Check out videos I directed for @collegehumor with me and @NikkiReed_I_Am as Wonder Twins, epic #superheroauditions,” he enthused.
Clearly, Nikki and Peter should stick to their superhero duties as Forks’ resident, badass vampire vegetarians. Right?
