‘Robot Chicken’ Writer Among Those Credited For ‘The Marvels’ Script

A new press release for ‘The Marvels’ has seemingly confirmed a ‘Robot Chicken’ writer helped to pen the script.

According to Marvel Studios, via a new official press release for The Marvels, Zeb Wells is confirmed to be one of four writers credited with penning the film’s script. Wells joins the previously announced Megan McDonnell who served as a staff writer and story editor on WandaVision. Additionally, Elissa Karasik, a staff writer and executive story editor on Loki has also been given a writing credit on the film, as well as the film’s director Nia DaCosta.

Like both McDonnell and Karasik, Wells is no stranger to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He is credited with writing Episode 7 of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, “The Retreat,” and is the head writer and executive producer on the upcoming Marvel Zombies animated series. Wells is also the creator of the adult stop-motion animated sitcom SuperMansion and was a writer and director for Robot Chicken, for which he won an Emmy. Wells has also written numerous titles for Marvel Comics, including Civil War: Young Avengers/Runaways, Heroes for Hire and various Spider-Man titles.

Considering his comedic background, Wells‘ involvement would seem to suggest that the Captain Marvel sequel might be taking a rather humorous turn. However, tonal shifts have been seen before and executed well in MCU sequels such as Thor: Ragnarok and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Both of those tonal shifts resulted in incredibly successful sequels and The Marvels looks to have a chance to follow that trend. Fans will just have to wait and see once The Marvels is released in theaters on July 28, 2023.
