Here’s a surprise it looks like Wonder Man is the next hero to get his own series, as The Hollywood Reporter has just shared that Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings‘ Destin Daniel Cretton is working alongside Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Community writer, Andrew Guest, to develop a live-action series based on the popular character. Guest is the series head writer while Cretton will exec produce the series. Though, he is likely also set to direct the pilot episode. It’s currently eyeing a 2023 production start.
the project is part of Cretton‘s new deal with Marvel Studios and will head to Disney+ like many Marvel Studios projects before it. Given the team behind it, it’s very likely to follow the comedy format that She-Hulk, Attorney at Law is going to use. That means we might get around nine episodes for a full season, though who knows if they might take a different approach as they adapt to the new format.
Wonder Man almost appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe at one point, as Nathan Fillion shot a few scenes as the character. For those that don’t know, Wonder Man is actually an actor known as Simon Williams. He’s the original blueprint for the brainwaves that created Vision in the comics. He also is more an actor than a superhero, who would eventually have various interpretations throughout the years due to his abilities. The potential of a look into Hollywood through the lens of a superhero has been an exciting prospect to explore for some time, something we even pitched a while back.
