Marvel Studios’ production machine will be dialed up to do some major work soon. Agatha: Coven of Chaos is currently in production in Atlanta and six other projects are set to kick off principal photography by June. Among those is Wonder Man, a streaming series created by Destin Daniel Cretton and starring Yahya Abdul-Mateen II but that has never been acknowledged by Marvel Studios…until now.
In an interview with Comic Book, Marvel Studios producer Stephen Broussard finally made it official, confirming the series is happening and teasing the tone of the project.
“Destin is doing a television show for us called Wonder Man,” said Broussard, joking that, “I think that’s out there in the world.” Not only was Broussard feeling kind enough to confirm Wonder Man is in the works, but he also gave some details about what to expect from the series, including a heavy dose of influence from the comics.
[Wonder Man will] be definitely influenced by the comics. One of the things that we’re excited about it is that it’s going to feel very unique. It’s not going to feel like anything you’ve quite seen in the MCU before. And the kind of stories we can tell on Disney+, which has been fun. Like streaming, serialized storytelling is a totally different muscle. So, we’re having a blast making that one. Stephen Broussard
A recent rumor compared the tone of the show to that of HBO’s Barry, a comparison that fans of that show and the MCU should be very excited about if it’s accurate. Wonder Man is set to kick off production in late March/early April and run through August meaning it should end up somewhere on Marvel Studios’ 2024 streaming slate.
