Disney+ and Marvel Studios’ new series Wonder Man, starring Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, has brought on Stella Meghie to direct episodes.
According to Deadline, Meghie is set to direct multiple episodes for the series, in addition to Daniel Destin Cretton, who executive produces the series as well. Andrew Guest is head writer.
'Wonder Man' was created by Stan Lee and artists Don Heck and Jack Kirby.
Per Deadline, “Wonder Man was introduced to Marvel Comics in 1964 via The Avengers #9. The character otherwise known as Simon Williams is the son of the industrialist Sanford Williams and assumes control of his munitions outfit following his passing, seeing its successes limited when it comes into competition with Tony Stark’s Stark Industries. The younger Williams gains ion-based superpowers, including super strength, while working under the villainous Baron Zemo and establishing himself as an antagonist to The Avengers, though he later decides to become part of that superhero team.”
'Wonder Man' is the latest addition to Meghie's resume, which includes directing the 2020 romance film 'The Photograph.'
She is also currently working with Disney to develop a new live-action series for Disney+ titled Tiana, which will revolve around the character from the Disney animated flick The Princess and the Frog. Meghie is set to serve as executive producer on the series.
