Who Is Wonder Man?
Simon Williams, aka Wonder Man, is simply an actor from Hollywood at the beginning of his story arc from the Marvel Comics run. However, Williams is quickly thrown into the world of superheroes once he obtains his abilities, with the name Wonder Man coming after this happens.
Wonder Man is noted by fans as being one of the strongest Avengers from the comics adaptation of the character, potentially meaning that Abdul-Mateen II will also be joining the Avengers lineup for Avengers: The Kang Dynasty or Avengers: Secret Wars to face Kang, Kang, and all the other Kangs.
Wonder Man is currently expected to release in late 2023 or sometime in 2024, no release date has been announced as of writing this article.
