The crowded superhero genre of films and television is about to get even more crowded in the distant future. Recently, it was announced that “Captain America: Civil War” directors Joe and Anthony Russo are developing a television show based on Valiant Comics’ popular comic book heroes, “Quantum And Woody."

After the Russo brothers finish “The Avengers: Infinity War," the brothers will produce and bring the story of the world’s worst superhero duo to small screens. Producers Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari of “Ant-Man” fame will pen the script for the pilot episode and also produce.

Currently, Barrer and Ferrari are writing the script for the sequel “Ant-Man and The Wasp." Valiant CEO and Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani will also serve as an executive producer on the show.

'Quantum and Woody'

Valiant Comics’ “Quantum and Woody” tells the tale of interracial adopted brothers who have a love hate relationship. After their father is murdered, the adopted men investigate, and during the course of investigation obtain superpowers in a laboratory explosion. The super duo also have a pet goat. The comic book series drew inspiration from buddy comic book heroes like Power Man and Iron Fist as well as the 90’s buddy movie “White Men Can’t Jump” starring Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes.

Quantum and Woody” first debuted in the 90’s, and was the brainchild of Christopher Priest (“Black Panther”) and Mark Bright (“Green Lantern”). Valiant has other projects in the works for film and television too, such as “Harbinger," “Shadowman," and “Bloodshot."

Other than the Russo brothers being attached to the project, information is lacking such as who will be cast to play the super-powered brothers.

Also there is no word on whether the show will air on television or be available through a streaming service like Netflix. Marvel's “Avengers: Infinity War” comes out in the summer of 2018 so more information on this project should come to light after the Russo brothers end their run with Marvel.
