Legendary Pictures Revives Electra Woman and Dyna Girl

Remember Electra Woman and Dyna Girl??!! Of course you don't. I'm 41 and I barely remember them. It seems name recognition means little to the juggernaut production company Legendary who brought you tiny little films like GODZILLA...and Pacific Rim...and Batman. I know next to nothing about this project, other than it is happening (as per a tip from Legendary's Twitter account) and a quicky video introducing the two young ladies playing the pivitol rolls...

Sooo...what can we glean from this tiny bit of greeting? Obviously, the content won't be incredibly serious, otherwise the ladies might do something say...wear super hero outfits. Variety caught the news and added these pieces to the puzzle...
The reboot of “Electra Woman and Dyna Girl”- starring YouTube sensations Grace Helbig as Electra Woman and Hannah Hart as Dyna Girl- follows the two superheroes as they move from Akron, Ohio, to Los Angeles in hopes of making it big in the crime fighting world, only to find competition with other vigilantes and infighting among themselves.
It's a "series" executive produced by Sid and Marty Krofft, so their baby will be in good hands, apparently. Hitting THIS LINK will take you to the placeholder for the series and allow you to sign up for updates, which we are told include behind the scenes bits, trailers and super hero tips.

  1. I remember them although at the time, I thought of the show as being for boys, lol. I'm over 50 though ;-)
