Marvel Studios’ Wonder Man crew member dies on set after ‘accident’ | TV & Radio | Showbiz & TV

A Marvel Studios crew member working on Wonder Man died in an “accident” on set.

It is understood the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) attended Radford Studios, LA, after receiving reports of a death.

A 41-year-old man had reportedly fallen from a catwalk onto a stage.

The LA County Department of Medical Examiner later confirmed the identity of the man as Juan Carlos Osorio, of Temple City, California.

“Our thoughts and deepest condolences are with his family and friends, and our support is behind the investigation into the circumstances of this accident,” a Marvel spokesperson told the PA news agency.

In the Wonder Man series, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II will star as Simon Williams, who is thrust into the world of superheroes getting a power of his own and becoming Wonder Man.

Production of Wonder Man was delayed during the Hollywood strikes and does not appear to have a premiere date, but the series is expected to debut on Disney+.

The accident comes after the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of the film Rust in October 2021.

US actor Alec Baldwin was pointing a gun at Ms Hutchins during a rehearsal when the weapon went off, killing her and wounding director Joel Souza – he has since pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter.

A representative for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration has been contacted for comment.
