Marvel Studios is ramping up development for the upcoming “Wonder Man” series for Disney+, which follows Simons Williams, who in the comics is a scion of a wealthy industrialist, his company losing out to Tony Stark’s Stark Industries. Williams goes to work for the villain Baron Zemo who gives him ionic talents, that being extreme strength. Wonder Man ultimately switches to being a hero and teams up with the Avengers. With Baron Zemo being a major part of Wonder Man’s origin, its expected that Daniel Brühl will also return to the character that he has played in “Captain America: Civil War” and returned in the Disney+ series, “The Falcon And The Winter Soldier”.

Deadline is reporting that Lauren Glazier has joined the cast of the show, though it’s no unknown what character she will be playing. Lauren has previously starred in Netflix’s “Mindhunter”, “Tales Of The Walking Dead” and Apple TV+’s “See”.

The new series is going to be directed by Destin Daniel Cretton, who previously directed, “Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings”, and he will also be directing the upcoming “Avengers: Kang Dynasty” film. Also directing the new series will be Stella Meghie, she has previously directed “The Photograph”, along with episodes of “Grown-ish”, and “First Wives Club”.

Yahya Adbul-Mateen II has been linked to playing the title character in the series, which is due to begin filming in April. Ben Kingsley will also be returning as Trevor Slattery in the upcoming series.

Currently, no official details on this show have been announced by Marvel.

Tara Duncan, Kevin Feige and Asher Goldstein are also listed as producers on the new Disney+ show, which is being written by Madeline Walter, Paul Bradford Welsh and Andrew Guest.

With filming due to take place over the summer and with the slowdown in Marvel releases, it might be a couple of years, before we see it released on Disney+.
