Mockingbird and Lance Hunter take center stage in MARVEL’S MOST WANTED pilot.
Despite rumors that the project was scrapped months ago, Marvel’s Most Wanted lives on! The spin-off of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was rumored long ago, then apparently dropped before production. However, Variety is reporting that ABC has changed their minds and will indeed order a pilot for consideration!
If the pilot passes executive scrutiny and heads to the small screen, Marvel’s Most Wanted will focus on the adventures of Adrianne Palicki as Mockingbird/Bobbi Morse and Nick Blood as Lance Hunter. They show will play off their roles on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, but give their characters move room to evolve outside the show’s confines.
As Marvel does its best to integrate the cinematic and television universe (besides that whole “Hawkeye is already married with children” snafu Joss Whedon left us with in Avengers: Age of Ultron), spreading it out over two television shows might make things a little easier to squeeze in. At the moment, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D is fairly heavy on the Inhumans plotline, so Marvel’s Most Wanted could take things in a different direction. If the pilot gets picked up, of course!
In the meantime, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D returns September 29, 2015 on ABC.
