Yahya Abdul-Mateen II could be Wonder Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

The future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is showing itself particularly open to secondary figures in the superhero pantheon of the House of Ideas. After announcing a series that will see Rudy War Machine Rhodes as protagonist, that is Armor Wars, in recent times there is often talk of another character ready to move from paper to the serial dimension of the franchise: Simon Williams, aka Wonder Man. It seems, in fact, that Marvel Studios are in talks with Yahya Abdul-Mateen II to play Wonder Man, a return to the world of comics for the actor, who played the villain Black Mantha in the two films dedicated to Aquaman and Doctor Manhattan. in the recent Watchmen series.

Will Yahya Abdul-Mateen II be Wonder Man in the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe series?

The news currently available on Wonder Man is quite limited. We know that it will be directed by Destin Daniel Cretton (Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Avengers: Kang Dinasty) and that the screenplay will be entrusted to Andrew Guest (Brooklyn Nine-Nine). The announced return of Ben Kingsley in the role of Trevor Slattery, a character played for the first time in Iron Man 3, leads us to believe that the series dedicated to Simon Williams may be a satirical criticism of the Hollywood world, a hypothesis that he finds in the comic book past of Wonder Man an easy foothold.

Wonder Man appears in Marvel comics in Avengers # 9 (1964), created by Stan Lee and Don Heck, with an initial villain role, then being convinced by the Avengers to change his life and become a hero. Equipped with a wide range of powers, from teleportation to energy manipulation, Simon Williams is best known for being one of the founders of the West Coast Avengers and for being the brain 'model' from which Ultron created the mind patterns of Vision.| ); }
These two elements could be central in the development of the series dedicated to Wonder Man. Simon Williams' stay on the west coast coincided with his curious career as a stuntman and actor in Hollywood, thus providing the inspiration for satire on the Mecca of cinema. His relationship with Vision, which we can consider as a brother, could instead create a link with another series in development at Marvel Studios, Vision Quest, a run in which Simon Williams, after the syntezoid had become White Vision, became the 'love interest by Wanda Maximoff.

I really love the character of Simon Williams / Wonder Man in the comics, a superhero sometimes an actor, and I clearly see Nathan Fillion in the role . But, of course, in a movie set 99.99% in space, I didn't have a place for him. So in a brief memory on Earth I had thought about inserting a cinema where the Simon Williams Film Festival took place, with six Simon Williams movie posters, but unfortunately the part of the film in which this scene was inserted was too slow and slowed down the rhythm, and I had to cut the scene

Nathan Fillion was therefore unable to play Simon Williams, but this opportunity now seems to be within the reach of Yahya Abdul-Mateen II.
