ABC Marvel Spinoff with Mockingbird and Lance Hunter is ON Again!

at . Comments

Remember when ABC almost gave fans a new Marvel show featuring Barbara "Bobbi" Morse aka Mockingbird and Lance Hunter?

Well, forget about when it was off the table, because it's back on again!

The title of the pilot is Marvel's Most Wanted, and it will star Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. standouts, Adrianne Palicki and Nick Blood as Mockingbird and Lance Hunter, focusing on the further adventures of the duo.

Bobbi and Hunter - Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Despite the outcries of fans concerned that S.H.I.E.L.D. would lose two strong characters from the series, the pilot has apparently been redeveloped with a new direction that excited all involved.

It's unclear whether the pilot would be considered a true spinoff or even whether the introduction would come by way of a backdoor pilot or a standalone pilot, as was done with The Flash on The CW. 

This would make the third Marvel series for ABC in addition to S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Quotes

Ward: You know, last time I suggested we work together you called me a deluded son of a bitch.
Coulson: Things change. I'm offering you a deal. Help me and I'll let you walk away; free and clear. No more looking over your shoulder.
Ward: When something's too good to be true, it's a lie.
Coulson: Not lying. I tried to stick with you before, didn't work so well. So, I'm offering a carrot.
Ward: I'm listening.
Coulson: Get me inside. After that, I put you through the T.A.H.I.T.I. protocol and then you're free to go.
Ward: Wipe my memories? Wow that sounds like a threat, not a carrot.

If Coulson doesn't make it out, you get that closure you've been searching for. Closure's not something I ever put much stock in. What I believe in, is moving forward. Never looking back.
