Marvel Studios continues to churn out content at such an amazing pace as The Hollywood Reporter has the exclusive that SHANG-CHI AND THE LEGEND OF THE TEN RINGS director Destin Daniel Cretton will develop and helm the new Disney+ series, WONDER MAN.

THR reports:

"Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings filmmaker Destin Daniel Cretton has teamed up with Andrew Guest, a writer-producer on comedies such as Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Community, to tackle a live-action series featuring the longtime Marvel character.

"Guest will serve as head writer of the series, while Cretton will exec produce and possibly direct an episode or more. Cretton is working via his overall deal with Marvel Studios, signed late last year in the glow of Shang-Chi’s success.

"Development for what is being titled Wonder Man is in the early stages, but if things crackle, cameras could be rolling in 2023."

Wonder Man, a.k.a. Simon Williams, is a stunt man and actor who becomes a celebrity when he gains superhuman powers after exposure to ionic energy. Wonder Man is also one of the founding members of the comic book superhero team, West Coast Avengers.
