Marvel followers need Jimmy Woo & Darcy to get an X-Information-style MCU collection on Disney +
After making his entertaining debut on the new Marvel series WandaVisionLots of fans want Randall Park to lead his own Disney + series as Jimmy Woo, partnered with Darcy Lewis. Park originally made his debut in the MCU as the character in the 2018 film Ant-Man and the Wasp. He recently re-enacted the role of WandaVision when Jimmy was investigating a strange missing person case and collaborating with Dr. Darcy Lewis (Kat Dennings) worked together to solve the bizarre puzzle.
Park’s appearance on WandaVision has resulted in Jimmy Woo being urged on social media to get his own The X-Files-style series with a Marvel twist. Actor and filmmaker Stephen Ford, who appeared on the TV series Teen Wolf, started the new movement by tweeting his idea for a new series at the MCU after Jimmy Woo investigated bizarre phenomena related to superheroes.
“Listen to me: A whole Disney + show about Jimmy Woo just doing weird cases in the MCU. Like funny X-Files. Make it happen,” Ford put in on Twitter, and it wasn’t long before the Tweet went viral. Marvel’s Runaways writer Warren Hsu Leonard even made an offer to write the series for free if that helps produce the show.
I will write this for free

Even better, there is already a blueprint for this type of story. Marvel Comics previously starred the character in the Agents of Atlas comic series, which follows a team of superheroes led by Jimmy Woo. A lot of comic book readers point out on Twitter that Agents of Atlas would make for a great new series. One fan replies, “Out of the love of God, can we please get this fast lane? I need more Jimmy Woo.”
Can we please get this fast lane out of love for God? I need more Jimmy Woo.

The problem with using Agents of Atlas as inspiration is that the series feels more like X-Men and less like X-Men X-Files. Other fans would rather see the Jimmy Woo series as a mystery series with two agents investigating strange cases, such as a fan tweeting, “Agent Woo with Dr. Lewis as his partner? Sign me up.”

Please do this. A comedy / mystery.

A fan agrees that Kat Dennings can play as Dr. Lewis plays along, with the couple essentially acting as Marvel’s Mulder and Scully. The tweet reads: “With Darcy. Woo and Darcy are in the job of running a department for X-Files guys. All that low-key stuff that SWORD shouldn’t waste time on. Of course, cases can seem small, but huge Marvel- Open cans with worms! ” Werewolf by night! Random weird aliens like the Popupian! Howard the Duck! “
With Darcy. Woo and Darcy are charged with running an X-Files types department. All that low-key stuff that SWORD shouldn’t waste time on.
Of course, the cases may seem small, but they can open huge Marvel cans of worms!

Another Marvel fan sees all sorts of other creative opportunities for weird characters from the comics that Woo can meet in his own hypothetical series, from Man-Thing, Frog-Man, and Hellcow: Bessie the Vampire Cow, to The Orb, Forbrush Man , Mojo and MODOK

Whether it’s Agents of Atlas or an X-Files show based on Jimmy Woo and Darcy Lewis, it seems clear that a Jimmy Woo series would be a hit with Marvel fans. Time will tell if it actually happens. This story is from Stephen Ford on Twitter.

You mean Atlas agents. There’s a comic book that basically is like that, and fans have been asking about Disney + for a while to turn it into a series. pic.twitter.com/Ciq4klyE2y

I would definitely watch and I hate most of those things. Wandavision and Legion are the only shows worth seeing imo. You are a distorted reflection of reality. They shed some light on the people we make gods and what such a reality might look like.
