Spinoff About Jimmy Woo Being Pitched To Marvel Studios

Spinoff About Jimmy Woo Being Pitched To Marvel Studios

Randall Park's performance as Jimmy Woo in the fourth episode of WandaVision went down so well with viewers that a spinoff centred on the character is already set to be pitched to Marvel Studios.

Following the fifth episode of the new show, Park's appearance led to a call on social media for FBI Special Agent Woo to get a show of his own, alongside astrophysicist Darcy Lewis (played by Kat Dennings).

While several ideas did the rounds, it was one from actor/director Stephen Ford that piqued the interest of the fans - he proposed an X-Files-style series featuring the two characters as paranormal investigators.

Many people were excited by the idea, and Ford later took to Twitter to confirm he's now working on an official pitch.

"Uh. Wow. So. We might have actually opened some doors on my Jimmy Woo X-Files idea," he wrote.

"I'm spending the weekend writing the pitch.

"Can't express how much of an underdog I am in this scenario so [don't] get too excited but cross your fingers and thanks to everyone who made it possible."

Exciting stuff. As well as the latest news, it looks like Park and Dennings would be down too.

Speaking about the concept, Park told ComicBook: "I've heard. I've heard that and I didn't know that, but I learned that today and I think that that would be amazing!

"And I would be down if, you know, if [Marvel Studios' head honcho] Kevin Feige - he wanted that, in a heartbeat of course I would do it."

Dennings added: "I have heard rumblings of people saying that, which I will take with a grain of salt. But I mean, I'll work with Randall Park any day."

Looks like Phase 4 of the MCU is well and truly underway, having kicked off with the release of WandaVision on Disney+ in January.

Following a long year of zero action from the MCU, people were left wondering - will the mini-series be worth the wait?

Well, in a word, yes. WandaVision is a joy to watch, being fantastically funny, suitably sinister and seriously compelling.

Reuniting the Avengers' star-crossed lovers Vision (Paul Bettany) and Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen), the show opens with the pair in black and white wedded bliss in a clear parody of the iconic sitcom I Love Lucy.

From there though, things start to get weird - very weird - as Vision and Wanda find themselves living out a parody of a classic TV plot seemingly with no memory of their superhero lives or the fact that Vision is... well, you know, dead.

To say any more would be a spoiler, but needless to say things only get stranger from there.

If you want to catch the wonderfully unique MCU entry, the first five episodes are available to stream on Disney+ now, with the final two set to drop in the coming weeks.
