Wonder Man is currently in pre-production, with cameras set to start rolling in March. Wonder Man is one of a handful of Marvel series that were delayed due to Hollywood’s dual strikes.

“Our thoughts and deepest condolences are with his family and friends,” a Marvel rep said in a statement. “And our support is behind the investigation into the circumstances of this accident.”

Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Watchmen) is confirmed to fill the title role (aka Simon Williams) in Wonder Man, which is being developed by Destin Daniel Cretton (Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings) and writer-producer Andrew Guest (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Community).
