It looks like Wonder Man may be gearing up for production much sooner thane expected, as a new report shared by Discussing Film hints that the Disney+ series might be entering production in March. Shang-Chi director Daniel Destin Cretton is attached as an executive producer and director, but it seems like they have also found another talented director to join the production.
It seems they may have added James Ponsoldt as director, but there’s no word on how many episodes he may tackle. The director is well known for his work on The Spectacular Now, Master of None, and The Circle, but he’s also recently worked on the series Shrinking, which was released on Apple TV+ just last week. We haven’t heard any casting announcements on the series since Yahya Abdul-Mateen II got the title role back in October. So, if we hear more this month, March would seem more and more likely.
It’s interesting if Wonder Man does end up starting production in March, as rumors some time ago hinted at a late 2023 release. It would seem like they’d rush the production trying to have that done in time, so a 2024 release seems more likely. Andrew Guest is the showrunner on the project and is bound to bring some fun comedy to the series. Perhaps, Marvle Studios is taking some lessons and attempting a smaller budget more appropriate for a traditional sitcom series with this project.
