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

Jemma: What happened?
Elena: Mack lit me on fire.

I’m aware that we rolled the dice with Coulson, and I still believe that we need him for this, but I admit that I let my emotions get the best of me. I thought that Coulson was the only one who could keep us on the same page. [looks at Yo-Yo] You would say that’s proof that I can’t do the job. That I shouldn’t lead. [long pause] Well, I agree. The truth is, I can’t hold the team together. [looks at Mack] But he can. Coulson wants me to call the shots in his absence. Well, that’s my decision. Mack should call the shots. He has the biggest heart. I mean, physically, but also, you know… You are our moral center.
