Marvel Studios has been quite busy with the various films and TV shows. Among the many projects in the pipeline, their recently announced Wonder Man has become quite an exciting addition, as it not only focuses on one of Marvel comics’s Avengers that almost joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe back in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Nathan Fillion was set to take on the role yet now Yahya Abdul-Mateen II has been cast in the iconic role. We are still waiting for when Marvel Studios gets ready to start development on the project, but a new listing may have hinted at their planned release date.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Hawkeye‘s Andrew Guest is moving on from a consulting producer role to become the head writer and showrunner for Wonder Man. We still don’t know a lot about how they’ll tackle the characters powers and roots as a Hollywood star; here’s hoping for Marvel Studios to also venture out with some creative jabs at itself like they did in She-Hulk, Attorney at Law. Still, it seems a new listing on the WGA has revealed that the series is very likely eyeing a late 2023 release for its first season.
The listing includes “2023-2024” and with the show already revving up its castings, such as recent reports on Bob Ordenkirk potentially joining, it does seem like a fitting timeline for when the show might release. Of course, we know that Hawkeye, which is listed for “2021-2022” wrapped up before the year ended, but it does fit with the timing that was initially expected. Of course, there’s always a chance that the project could get pushed back with everything on Marvel Studios’ plate but it does give us a window on all-in they are with this project.
