Russo Brothers Line Up ‘Quantum and Woody’ Series After ‘Infinity War’
The Russo brothers have no shortage of TV projects to complement their film work with Avengers: Infinity War and beyond, between Hulu’s Warriors and a Showtime weed comedy. The latest returns them to the small-screen yet again, as the ex-Community directors look to adapt Valiant’s Quantum and Woody, the “world’s worst super-duo.”
According to The Wrap, Anthony and Joe Russo will executive produce the new Valiant Entertainment series along with Mike Larocca and Valiant’s Dinesh Shamdasani. If that weren’t Marvel-ous enough, Ant-Man and sequel writers Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari will executive produce and write the pilot.
For those not familiar with the property, Quantum and Woody was created by the writer/artist team of Christopher Priest and MD Bright in 2013. As The Wrap’s report puts it:
Once upon a time, Eric and Woody Henderson were inseparable. Adopted brothers. Best friends. Brilliant minds. Years later, they are estranged siblings, petty rivals, and washed-up failures. But when their father’s murder leads them into the throes of a life-altering accident, Eric and Woody will find themselves with a whole new purpose – and a perfectly legitimate reason to wear costumes and fight crime. Go big or go home, folks! Quantum and Woody are coming!
There’s time yet before we see what becomes of Quantum and Woody, but what other projects should the Russo brothers take on post-Avengers?
