Late last week we were surprised by the rumors that 'Once Upon a Time's' producers had quietly begun plotting a Mad Hatter-centric spinoff, potentially re-casting busy 'Captain America: The WInter Soldier' star Sebastian Stan, but whether for damage control or not, it seems the rumor has largely been debunked. 'Once Upon a Time' creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis have publicly commented on the prospect of a Mad Hatter spinoff, but what are the chances of it actually happening?
While The CW preps a potential spin-off for 'The Vampire Diaries,' and 'The Office' quietly turned down Dwight Schrute spin-off 'The Farm,' it seems ABC's 'Once Upon A Time' could soon get in on the spin-off game by developing a new series around its popular portrayal of 'Alice in Wonderland's Mad Hatter. And while as much as Sebastian Stan fans would love to see the actor in his own series, filming commitments to 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' may necessitate that the role be recast.
