According to Comic Circus, 'Callback' is one of the working titles Wonder Man is using during its production. 'Callback' is possibly a reference to actors waiting for a callback from an agent or Hollywood executive regarding an audition. Simon Williams/Wonder Man was an actor in the comics, and there are rumors that a live-action Wonder Man show may follow the hero while he navigates the world of Hollywood, with the project leaning heavily into comedic themes and even being a caricature of Hollywood.

As per Screen Geek, another thing that is worth noting is that Yahya Abdul-Mateen II might star as 'Wonder Man' in the MCU series. The actor has already appeared in the DCEU as Manta/Black Manta in 'Aquaman' and its upcoming sequel. It honestly makes it more interesting to see him branch out into the MCU as well. However, Variety speculates Ben Kingsley might reprise Trevor Slattery's role in the upcoming Marvel studios’ 'Wonder Man' series on Disney+.

Who is Wonder Man?

Simon Williams is a fictional character that appears in comic books that are published by Marvel Comics. Created by writer Stan Lee and artists Don Heck and Jack Kirby, he first appeared in 'The Avengers' on October 1964. The character, who was initially introduced as a supervillain imbued with "ionic" energy, fought the Avengers and after a series of events, he was reborn as a superhero joining the team against which he originally fought. Marvel Comics' then-publisher Stan Lee said in 1978, "You know, years ago we brought out Wonder Man, and the DC Comics sued us because they had 'Wonder Woman,' and... I said okay, I'll discontinue 'Wonder Man'. And all of a sudden they've got Power Girl after Marvel had introduced Power Man. Oh, boy. How unfair."
