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

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.

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.

As far as I'm concerned, you're just another redshirt, like so many others who tried to stop me from saving the world. So, cool original story, bro. But this means nothing to me.
