Marvel’s New Wonder Man: Is Yahya Abdul-Mateen II Going to be Star in Disney+ Series?

Here you will read details about who will be Marvel’s new Wonder Man? The Marvel Cinematic Universe now has its own new Wonder Man. Yahya Abdul-Mateen II has been cast as Simon Williams/Wonder Man in the upcoming Disney+ series.

Abdul-Mateen will be playing his third big comic book character in this role following his portrayal of Black Manta in 2018’s “Aquaman” and Dr. Manhattan in HBO’s 2019 series “Watchmen,” for which he earned an Emmy. His return as Black Manta in “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,” which is scheduled for release on Christmas Day, 2023, is already in the works.

Within the scope of his overall partnership with Marvel Studios and Onyx Collective, director Destin Daniel Cretton (who will helm “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” for the studio in 2021) is creating “Wonder Man” alongside head writer Andrew Guest (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “Community”).

Cretton may also direct, but he already has a lot on his plate. With “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty” scheduled for release in 2025, and a potential (yet undisclosed) “Shang-Chi” sequel in the works, it seems likely that he will direct both.

Williams is the son of a wealthy businessman who loses business to Stark Industries and goes bankrupt in the comics. Simon is desperate, so he approaches Baron Zemo, who gives him superpowers and instructs him to infiltrate and ultimately betray the Avengers.

However, Simon becomes a dedicated team member of the Avengers and even helps create their offshoot on the West Coast. It’s unknown, though, how much of this plot will actually be included in the show.

However, Ben Kingsley is scheduled to reprise his role as failed actor-turned-reformed villain Trevor Slattery, which he first played in 2013’s “Iron Man 3” and then again in 2015’s “Shang-Chi.” This suggests that William’s comedic past as an actor and stunt performer will play a role in the program.

A release date for “Wonder Man” from Marvel Studios has not been set.
