Bobbi Morse, aka Mockingbird has been one of the highlights of ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, and now actress Adrianne Palicki will be taking the lead in a Mockingbird spin-off!
While a spin-off involving Mockingbird was rumoured quite some time ago, we now have confirmation in the fact that ABC have ordered a pilot, which according to Variety will centre around Palicki’s character and her character’s on and off again boyfriend/S.H.I.E.L.D Agent Lance Hunter played by Nick Blood.
While not much is known about the new series except that ABC have green lit a pilot. Titled Marvel’s Most Wanted, the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D spin-off the show will presumably follow the pair in their own adventures which could be either past or present.
Given that the shows do exist within the MCU, if ABC were able to pull it off with so little time, the Mockingbird spin-off could fit into the pre-release schedule of Captain America: Civil War. It would be highly ambitious, but with a title like Marvel’s Most Wanted, how awesome would it be to see Bobbi & Hunter chasing down vigilantes and villains alike to register under Tony Stark’s Superhero Registration Act?
Either way, Mockingbird & Hunter were certainly two of the highlights of the last season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and it will be great to see them under a bigger spotlight and possibly mixing it up with other areas like the MCU, be it movie characters or the likes of Daredevil!
