Marvel’s ‘Wonder Man’ Disney+ Series Production Co. and Working Title Reportedly Revealed

Last June, The Hollywood Reporter reported that a Wonder Man live-action TV series was in the works for Disney+.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings filmmaker Destin Daniel Cretton will reportedly executive produce and possibly direct an episode or more. Andrew Guest, a writer-producer on comedies such as Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Community, will serve as head writer.

According to The Cosmic Circus,  Ionic Productions LLC is the production company for the Wonder Man series and “Callback” is at least one of the working titles.

Cosmic Circus also reports that Guest will be joined by fellow Brooklyn Nine-Nine writers Madeline Walter and Paul Bradford Welsh.

Ben Kingsley will reprise his role as Trevor Slattery in the upcoming Marvel series.  According to Deadline, Ben Kingsley’s Slattery is a failed actor who posed as the main baddie in Iron Man 3. Tony Stark foils him. Slattery returned as a good guy in last year’s Shang-Chi and the Legends of the Ten Rings.

Created in the 1960s, Wonder Man aka Simon Williams was a villain turned hero with various super powers ranging from strength to speed to Ionic Energy Manipulation and even teleportation.  The character was first introduced in 1964 in the pages of Avengers No 9.

According to insider Daniel Richtman, the series is eyeing a 2023 production start however a more definitive timeline has not been revealed.  It also seems that Marvel is looking for a “big name” to fill the lead role.
