Last year, “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” director, Destin Daniel Cretton, signed a new overall deal with Marvel Studios, and one of the projects in this new deal is going to be a brand new live-action series for Disney+ featuring “Wonder Man”.
The “Wonder Man” project is currently still in the early stages of development, but it looks like the plan is for filming to start in 2023, which would mean the series wouldn’t arrive on Disney+ until 2024 at the earliest, should the project continue as planned.
Writer/Producer, Andrew Guest, is going to be the head writer for this new series, having previously worked on “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “Community”.
Destin Daniel Cretton is going to be executive producing the show and possibly will direct an episode or more. He is also currently making another series for Disney+, “American Born Chinese”.
“Wonder Man” made his debut in the “Avengers” comic book in October 1964 and created the West Coast Avengers. The character owns a weapon factory which he inherited, and is also an actor/stuntman in Hollywood, which could provide Marvel with a different take on a superhero. The character also has a long history with Vision and the Scarlet Witch, which could also provide a way for Disney to continue their story.
Disney hasn’t officially announced that this project is in development, but hopefully, it could be revealed at this year’s D23 Expo event in September.
