WONDER MAN Disney+ Series In The Works From SHANG-CHI Director And BROOKLYN NINE-NINE Writer

We have some exciting news to share with you today, as it's been revealed that Marvel Studios is developing a Wonder Man TV series for Disney+ that will finally see Simon Williams step into the spotlight.

With Disney+ Day fast approaching, the hope is that Marvel Studios is gearing up to announce a new wave of TV shows. One of those projects may have been revealed early, though, as The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Wonder Man is now officially in development. 

While the project is still in the early stages, the hope is that shooting could begin as soon as 2023. 

Most exciting is the news that Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings director Destin Daniel Cretton is working on the series with writer Andrew Guest. His credits include hit TV shows like Brooklyn Nine-Nine, 30 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.

In addition to working on Wonder Man, Cretton is also developing a sequel to Shang-Chi (and a possible Disney+ spinoff, though we do wonder if this is the show he's been attached to for a while). As for Guest, he's no MCU newbie as he previously served as a consulting producer on the Disney+ Hawkeye series.
