Adrianne Palicki’s been kicking butt all season on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and the Mockingbird has been rewarded with a larger role in ABC’s latest pilot order.
On Marvel’s Most Wanted, Palicki’s Bobbi Morse and her on/off husband Lance Hunter (Nick Blood) will get a chance to go off on their own adventure away from the S.H.I.E.L.D. team, reports Variety.
While a pilot order doesn’t mean we’ll get the full series (Palicki of all people should know that after her very, very brief Wonder Woman stint), Marvel’s TV offerings have been pretty strong, with both AoS and Agent Carter returning to ABC. In addition, Jessica Jones is due to hit Netflix and Daredevil’s already filming season 2.
With AoS moving into Inhuman and Secret Avengers territory, a Mockingbird/Hunter led title might allow Marvel to continue its non-superhuman characters development. This might also be a good way for Marvel to introduce more fringe characters from the comics, which they can’t fit into one Avengers get-together.
According to Variety, Marvel’s Most Wanted isn’t so much a spinoff as it is a new project, but other than the two leading cast members, not much else is known. We’ll just have to wait and see for more details.
Perhaps Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) can finally get a bit more airtime?
Do you think this series will be a good move for Marvel and ABC?
