Wonder Man: New Plot Details Reveal More About Simon Williams
While we know the star Of Aquaman The Lost World Yahya Abdul-Mateen II will play Simon Williams in Wonder Man of the Marvel Studios, beyond that, very little has been revealed about the series. The cast has started to take shape in the last few months, of course, with Sir Ben Kingsley ready to reprise the role of Trevor Slattery seen Iron Man 3. In April, Demetrius Grosse was confirmed as The Grim Reaperwhile we expect to see the star as well Of Westworld Ed Harris among the guest stars. Also Courtney Cox, Bob Odenkirk and Josh Gad are the strong names that are said to star in the series.
Thanks to The Hollywood Reporter we have a brief synopsis of Wonder Man which offers a better idea of where this series will take us. According to the site the series “offers a superhero’s perspective on the entertainment industry, centered around a Hollywood stuntman and actor trying to make it big in movies.” It’s an intriguing premise, and we’re guessing Simon’s having superpowers will give his career a boost. Still, it’s hard not to wonder how this journey ultimately leads the aspiring actor to join the ranks of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes as an Avenger.
