Rick & Morty writers haven’t worked out for Marvel

A number of Rick & Morty writers have moved to live-action films particularly with Marvel; however, unfortunately, it hasn’t turned out too successful.

Jeff Loveness wrote Quantumania which mega-bombed at the box office and with fans; Jessica Gao was behind She-Hulk which isn’t getting a Season 2, and Michael Waldron’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was a disappointment.

One Punch Man doesn’t have a release date and is based on the popular Manga created by One and follows Saitama, a superhero who can defeat any opponent with a single punch.
