Jon Favreau has had enough box-office success of late to keep to the movie screens, but Seth MacFarlane’s trip to space has the Jungle Book helmer squarely thinking TV. Favreau will direct and consult on MacFarlane’s new live-action FOX dramedy, set 300 years in the future.
If the cancellation of Agent Carter weren’t a sure-enough sign that Marvel TV wasn’t bulletproof, the network’s other Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff has also been put to rest. ABC has officially passed on Marvel’s Most Wanted, leaving Bobbi and Hunter’s adventures in limbo once more.
The moment Agent Carter star Hayley Atwell signed for a new ABC pilot, fans of Peggy’s post-Cap adventures began to worry, even as Marvel and ABC assured she could juggle both series. Ahead of pilot pickups, however, it’s starting to look like Agent Carter may be no more, while fellow Agents series Most Wanted has again lost some of its luster.
Whether or not spinning Bobbi Morse and Lance Hunter into their own series feels like the best move, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. certainly gave the two a memorable sendoff with Tuesday’s “Parting Shot.” Now, the Most Wanted pair have more company, as The Mummy alum Oded Fehr joins in a recognizably villainous Marvel role, along with a few other additions.
Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ barrels through 2016 to drink a “Parting Shot” for Hunter and Bobbi’s inevitable exit, but is the spinoff worth checking out? Does the team learn about Zombie Ward just yet? Find out in our full review of tonight’s latest ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’!
Uncertain though we are over Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. giving away two of its best and brightest to their Most Wanted spinoff, the continuing adventures of Bobbi “Mockingbird” Morse and Nick Hunter raise additional questions with their premise. Now, the first synopsis clarifies a bit of the Most Wanted extension, potentially teasing their Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. exit as well.
Whether the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff itself is Most Wanted, Adrianne Palicki’s Bobbi “Mockingbird” Morse and Nick Blood’s Lance Hunter are one step closer to their own series. The pilot spinoff has officially added Delroy Lindo in the role of Marvel adventurer Dominic Fortune, bringing Marvel’s Most Wanted a little more into focus.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. remains benched until March, following Agent Carter’s Season 2 return, but at least one other Agent remains active. Adrianne Palicki’s Mockingbird and partner Lance Hunter will still have their day, as ABC confirms a pilot order for their Most Wanted spinoff series.
A few months back, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fans were surprised to learn Marvel and ABC intended to develop a spinoff around Adrianne Palicki’s Mockingbird and Nick Blood’s Lance Hunter, ostensibly two of the strongest additions to the main series. That project was quickly shelved, but will apparently fly again with a pilot order for Marvel’s Most Wanted on ABC.
Marvel may not have brought any movies to Comic-Con 2015, but the Agents were out in full force as both S.H.I.E.L.D. and Peggy Carter took the stage at Ballroom 20 to preview their new seasons. S.H.I.E.L.D. opened up the Secret Warriors vault while Agent Carter prepped for L.A., and our full panel report has the scoop!
