One of the MCU series that is currently in the works is Wonder Man. So far, Marvel Studios remains mum regarding its plot details except that Shang-Chi director Destin Daniel Cretton is involved as one of its executive producers and filming is expected to begin soon.

We also know that Aquaman star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II has been cast to play the titular hero while Ben Kingsley is set to reprise his MCU role of Trevor Slattery in the series. There are also rumors that Bob Odenkirk and Ed Harris may join the series although it remains unconfirmed now.

Now, there is another exciting for the development of the series as Deadline has reported that The Photograph director Stella Meghie is being tapped to helm episodes of the Wonder Man series. It is unknown how many episodes she will direct although it will be multiple numbers like Cretton.

Meghie is joining the show's main creative team which already includes Cretton, head writer Andrew Guest, and producer Kevin Feige. She is also already part of the Disney family as she is currently attached to executive producing the new Disney+ animated series Tiana.

Marvel Studios executive Stephen Broussard recently confirmed the series' development and gave some clues on what we might expect on the hero's MCU debut.

"[Wonder Man will] be definitely influenced by the comics. One of the things that we're excited about it is that it's going to feel very unique. It's not going to feel like anything you've quite seen in the MCU before," he said.

"And the kind of stories we can tell on Disney+, which has been fun. Like streaming, serialized storytelling is a totally different muscle. So, we're having a blast making that one."

It's always great whenever a talented creative such as Meghie gets involved in an MCU project and this is a sign that they are currently deep into pre-production ahead of its supposed production start in just a couple of weeks. We might hear more key creatives joining the project as we're getting closer to the date.
