Marvel hasn’t confirmed the casting, as it doesn’t comment on projects in development.
The six-episode series is going to be directed by Sam Bailey and Angela Barnes, with Ryan Coogler’s Proximity among the production entities. The show’s head writer is Chinaka Hodge, and it will be executive produced by Ryan Coogler, Zinzi Coogler, and Sev Ohanian, alongside Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Brad Winderbaum, and Zoie Nagelhout.
