SCREAM Star Courteney Cox Is Rumored To Be In Talks For WONDER MAN Role

A new Wonder Man casting rumour suggests Scream star Courteney Cox is being eyed for a role in the upcoming Disney+ TV series that stars Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Sir Ben Kingsley. Check it out...

There's a lot of excitement surrounding the Wonder Man TV series coming to Disney+, and Marvel Studios may now be looking to add another impressive name to the show's cast. According to scooper DanielRPK (via CBR), Scream and Friends star Courteney Cox is now being eyed for a mystery role. 

There's no word on who she will play, but given Wonder Man's Hollywood setting, we can't help but wonder whether Cox will be one of the A-Listers Simon Williams crosses paths with. 

Aquaman star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II has been cast as Wonder Man, while Sir Ben Kingsley is set to reprise his Iron Man 3 and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings role as thespian Trevor Slattery. There have also been rumblings that Marvel Studios is eyeing Better Call Saul star Bob Odenkirk for a "special role."

As for Cox, she'll next be seen in Scream 6, reprising her role as journalist Gale Weathers. 

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings director Destin Daniel Cretton is executive producing Wonder Man with writer Andrew Guest. His credits include hit TV shows like Brooklyn Nine-Nine30 Rock, and Community, and Guest is set to serve as Head Writer (a.k.a. showrunner) for Wonder Man. Cretton will executive produce and likely direct a few episodes.

Wonder Man made his Marvel Comics debut in the pages of Avengers #9 in 1964. Initially a villain, he was later retconned and became a hero (and an Avenger) in the 1970s. His brother is the Grim Reaper, while it was his brainwaves that were used by Ultron as a basis for The Vision (giving them something of a brotherly relationship as well). 

Later, Simon Williams assembled alongside the West Coast Avengers and ultimately became a successful actor and stuntman. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 very nearly included a nod to the character's Hollywood background with Nathan Fillion lending his face to some movie posters that didn't make the final cut.

Wonder Man doesn't currently have a release date.
