Valiant Comics’ superhero tandem of Quantum and Woody are heading to the small screen thanks to “Avengers: Infinity War” directors Joe and Anthony Russo. According to sources for The Wrap, Valiant Entertainment will develop the project with the Russos and will executive produce alongside Mike Larocca, Andrew Barrer, Gabriel Ferrari and Valiant CEO Dinesh Shamdasani.
Barrer and Ferrari, who are currently scripting Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man and the Wasp,” will also provide script duties on the “Quantum and Woody” pilot.
Valiant Comics gave their blessing to the announcement via a tweet that included a goat emoticon, referencing the animal that played an important role in the “Quantum and Woody” comics.

Joe and Anthony Russo have television experience from their work on “Arrested Development,” “Happy Endings” and “Community.” The team directed “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and “Captain America: Civil War” and will helm the next two Avengers films.
Created by Christopher Priest and MD Bright, “Quantum and Woody” debuted in 1997 and stars adopted brother Eric Henderson and Woodrow “Woody” Van Chelton. When Eric’s biological father is murdered, the brothers’ investigation into the crime leads to them acquiring superpowers from a laboratory explosion.
Valiant Entertainment has plans to bring its other properties to feature films, most notably “Bloodshot” and “Harbinger” from Sony Pictures. Screenwriter Eric Heisserer (“Arrival”) will write both, as well as “Archer & Armstrong” and “Shadowman.”
