It’s now claimed the Wonder Man series starring Yahya Abdul-Mateen II is getting canceled along with additional MCU projects, which follows the news of the recent Daredevil: Born Again debacle that is seeing the series get retooled.
Marvel Studios has had major problems for a while, which culminated with the failure of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, and Secret Invasion on Disney+ being a complete disaster.
Shortly after, confirming exactly what my Comic-Con insiders told me over the Summer, it is learned Kevin Feige is rebooting Daredevil: Born Again and that Feige fired the writers and directors from the series.
The report also mentioned that Marvel and Feige are in the process of fixing how Marvel develops its MCU projects on Disney+ in the wake of the big failure of Secret Invasion and all the problems surrounding the series.
So with all the problems, it’s now claimed Marvel is not only “trashing” the Wonder Man series but other projects will also be thrown out.
“A lot of stuff going in the can”
The info comes from the writer of the MCU: The Reign of Marvel Studios, Joanna Robinson, who you will recall also said Feige wasn’t involved with the MCU on Disney+ and made it sound as if Feige never wanted the MCU on Disney+ but was forced by Disney.
“After we heard about Daredevil, I’ve also heard, again The Watch scoop, but also don’t sort me like… dubious sources necessarily… that they are trashing the Wonder Man project.”
Robinson continued and said Marvel will be canceling other projects.
“There’s a lot of stuff that is going to go in the can,” she said.
Robinson was cut off before she could say more, but Robinson and the two hosts were discussing how Marvel hasn’t been a success as of late. They said a lot of the projects don’t feel cohesive and that Marvel is out of touch with what the fans want. They happened to mention adding Ironheart to Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and making Shuri Black Panther in the film.
Worth a mention is that Marvel Studios recently announced a new release schedule for the MCU on Disney+ where both Wonder Man and Ironheart didn’t have release dates, and in the case of the latter, Ironheart was actually yanked from the release schedule.
It’s also known Wonder Man was forced to stop production due to the strikes, so assuming this info plays out, Marvel won’t continue filming the show and will cancel it.
What is also interesting is that Wonder Man seems to be on the goofier side of things, described as following Simon Williams, a failed actor, in a comedy series and a satire of Hollywood.
Recently it has been said Feige has been retooling the MCU to move away from goofy content following Quatumania failing, which includes cutting goofy scenes in The Marvels, and as insiders filled me in, moving the MCU’s Daredevil away from the goofy She-Hulk portrayal to be more in line with the much more popular Netflix version.
