Marvel ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Spinoff ‘Most Wanted’ Adds Delroy Lindo
Whether the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff itself is Most Wanted, Adrianne Palicki’s Bobbi “Mockingbird” Morse and Nick Blood’s Lance Hunter are one step closer to their own series. The pilot spinoff has officially added Delroy Lindo in the role of Marvel adventurer Dominic Fortune, bringing Marvel’s Most Wanted a little more into focus.
It remains unknown how exactly Lindo’s Dominic Fortune will feature into the series along side S.H.I.E.L.D. star Palicki and Blood, though worth noting is the character debuted in Howard Chaykin’s Marvel Preview No. 2 as “a rogue and adventurer who craved wealth and excitement on his globe-trotting odysseys.” (Via EW)
Quietly greenlit back in August, the series got official confirmation from ABC boss Paul Lee, saying “We are making it in the next few months. It’s a really good script.” News of the spinoff first emerged in April of 2015, before ABC seemingly shelved the project, until its August resurface.
Last we heard of the series, which spins off Marvel characters Bobbi Morse (Palicki) and Lance Hunter (Nick Blood), no decision had been made as to how, or when Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. would introduce the pilot, if at all. Initial reports also cryptically claimed that Marvel’s Most Wanted “is not a spinoff, per se, but rather an entirely new project solely focused on the two characters to continue their story.”
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. EP Jeffrey Bell and series writer Paul Zbyszewski will spearhead the project, both serving as showrunners and executive producers. We’ll hear more as Marvel’s Most Wanted gears up for production, but what do we make of the first addition?
