If the cancellation of Agent Carter weren’t a sure-enough sign that Marvel TV wasn’t bulletproof, the network’s other Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff has also been put to rest. ABC has officially passed on Marvel’s Most Wanted, leaving Bobbi and Hunter’s adventures in limbo once more.
Whether or not spinning Bobbi Morse and Lance Hunter into their own series feels like the best move, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. certainly gave the two a memorable sendoff with Tuesday’s “Parting Shot.” Now, the Most Wanted pair have more company, as The Mummy alum Oded Fehr joins in a recognizably villainous Marvel role, along with a few other additions.
Uncertain though we are over Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. giving away two of its best and brightest to their Most Wanted spinoff, the continuing adventures of Bobbi “Mockingbird” Morse and Nick Hunter raise additional questions with their premise. Now, the first synopsis clarifies a bit of the Most Wanted extension, potentially teasing their Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. exit as well.
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.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. remains benched until March, following Agent Carter’s Season 2 return, but at least one other Agent remains active. Adrianne Palicki’s Mockingbird and partner Lance Hunter will still have their day, as ABC confirms a pilot order for their Most Wanted spinoff series.
A few months back, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fans were surprised to learn Marvel and ABC intended to develop a spinoff around Adrianne Palicki’s Mockingbird and Nick Blood’s Lance Hunter, ostensibly two of the strongest additions to the main series. That project was quickly shelved, but will apparently fly again with a pilot order for Marvel’s Most Wanted on ABC.
Marvel may not have brought any movies to Comic-Con 2015, but the Agents were out in full force as both S.H.I.E.L.D. and Peggy Carter took the stage at Ballroom 20 to preview their new seasons. S.H.I.E.L.D. opened up the Secret Warriors vault while Agent Carter prepped for L.A., and our full panel report has the scoop!
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. successfully brought the MCU to the small-screen, but did you know that the Avengers-adjacent series shares DNA with both Skyfall and Mission: Impossible? That’s just one piece of Level 7 intel from the fourteenth episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?,’ which assembles its own Marvel-ous team for ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.!
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will enter Season 3 in its strongest shape yet, likely getting even better in tackling the famed Secret Warriors, but why wait until the fall? In advance of Comic-Con 2015, a new Season 3 poster gives a hand to our dear Coulson, simultaneously teasing that someone from on the team may find themselves on the outside looking in.
Well, now this is something of a surprise atop last night’s renewal of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter. Marvel has apparently decided not to follow through with its Mockingbird-centric spinoff after all, despite weeks of development and negotiations.
