ABC has plans for Marvel’s Most Wanted, a new series following Adrianne Palicki’s Bobbi Morse and Nick Blood’s Lance Hunter
First rumored back in April, a “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” spinoff is moving forward at ABC. Variety today reports that the network is calling for a pilot episode of a show that will be titled “Marvel’s Most Wanted” and that will follow Adrianne Palicki’s Bobbi Morse (AKA Mockingbird) and Nick Blood’s Lance Hunter.
“Marvel’s Most Wanted” hails from “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” producers Jeff Bell and Paul Zbyszewski. They’re co-writing the pilot together and, should the show go to series, they’ll serve as executive producers alongside Jeph Loeb.
“Marvel’s Most Wanted” arrives as “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” heads into its third season and “Agent Carter” gears up for its second. There’s also another Marvel series in the planning stages at the network that has Academy Award winner John Ridley (12 Years a Slave) attached. Meanwhile, Netflix has its own corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe covered with “Daredevil” already set for a second season and the first season of “Jessica Jones” set to arrive this fall. After that, Netflix has plans for “Luke Cage” and “Iron Fist” shows with the ultimate idea being for all the Netflix shows to cross over for a limited series, “The Defenders.”
“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” also stars Clark Gregg as Director Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Brett Dalton as Grant Ward, Chloe Bennet as Agent Skye, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz and Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons. Co-created by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen, who also serve as executive producers along with Jeph Loeb and Jeffrey Bell, “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” is produced by ABC Studios and Marvel Television. It returns to the network Tuesday, September 29 at 9:00pm ET/PT.
