Ben Kingsley nails cast of Wonder Man
At the moment we don’t know if his role will be recurring or not. In any case, it is Trevor’s official return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Destin Daniel Cretton, director of Shang-Chi, has been cast as executive producer, but he could also direct some episodes. Andrew Guest will instead be the writer of the series. The Wonder Man project is part of an extensive agreement signed by Daniel Cretton with Marvel Studios and which will also see him return to direct the sequel to Shang-Chi.
Simon Williams aka Wonder Man’s debut in Marvel comics dates back to 1964. Transformed into a being of pure ionic energy by Baron Zemo to help the Lords of Evil fight the Avengers, Wonder Man instead ends up sympathizing with the heroes by joining them and becoming, ever since, a pillar of the team despite his many insecurities and the constant battles with one’s own mortality.
Nathan Fillion was supposed to play Simon Williams in a series of easter eggs in the second volume of Guardians of the Galaxy, but the scenes were deleted from the final edit. In the comics Wonder Man was also briefly the love interest of Scarlet Witch as well as being one of the founding members of the West Coast Avengers. The Wonder Man series will obviously arrive on Disney +but at the moment no further information is known about it.
