It looks like Marvel Studios may have landed another big legendary actor. According to Jeff Sneider on the latest episode of The Hot Mic podcast, Ed Harris is said to be joining Marvel’s Wonder Man series in a major role.
If Harris does end up joining the project he will reportedly be playing Neal Saroyan, the agent of Simon Williams / Wonder Man, who will be played by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Candyman). The series also stars Demetrius Grosse as Grim Reaper, Lauren Glazier in a mystery role, and Ben Kingsley will return as Trevor Slattery.
Wonder Man series is being developed by Shang Chi director and producer Destin Daniel Cretton and Andrew Guest (Hawkeye) serves as head writer and executive producer. It will also be directed by The Spectacular Now and Shrinking‘s James Ponsoldt.
Wonder Man’s real name is Simon Williams, “the son of a wealthy industrialist whose company falls on hard times due to competition from Tony Stark’s Stark Industries. As a result, Williams accepts an offer from villain Baron Zemo that gives him ionic superpowers including super strength and durability. After fighting the Avengers several times, Wonder Man ultimately joined their ranks.”
Wonder Man was supposed to make a little cameo in James Gunn’s 2017 movie Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, with Nathan Fillion in the role. Fillion’s Wonder Man was supposed to appear in a series of in-universe movie posters during a sequence set on Earth, but it was ultimately cut from the film.
