A while ago, it was reported that Marvel Studios is developing a Wonder Man series for Disney+ with Shang-Chi director Destin Daniel Cretton attached as one of the executive producers and potentially helm episodes of the series and Andrew Guest tapped as the head writer.
Later on, Aquaman star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II was confirmed to be cast to play the titular role and Ben Kingsley is also set to return to reprise his MCU role of Trevor Slattery after last playing him in Shang-Chi. There are also reports that the series will begin production this spring.
However, despite all the reports regarding the project, Marvel Studios remains mum on its existence as they never mentioned it in their public presentations and it is also unknown yet which part of the upcoming phases will it be as well as whether it is officially part of the current Multiverse Saga.
Now, in a recent interview with ComicBook.com, Marvel Studios executive Stephen Broussard, who also co-produced some of the MCU projects including the new film Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, confirmed that they are indeed working on a Wonder Man series and also shared some exciting details about it.
"[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."
While Broussard didn't give out the specifics about the series, his tease sounds very promising and it is exciting to see why the series is going to be "very unique" and how exactly it will be different from any of the MCU projects that we've seen in the past.
As we're getting closer to its production in just a couple of months, we should be hearing more details about the series and which other actors they have tapped to join Abdul-Mateen II and Kingsley in the cast.
