POTENTIAL SPOILERS FOR LAST NIGHT’S EPISODE OF MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.
Marvel Studios has released the first photo of Bobbi Morse (Adrianne Palicki) in her S.H.I.E.L.D. tactical uniform in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (via Marvel.com).
"Bobbi Morse is a well-seasoned spy whose ability to slip in and out of undercover situations seamlessly will prove invaluable to our team," said Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Executive Producer, Jed Whedon. "But her appearance comes as a gut-punch to Hunter, as the history they share is complicated to say the least."
Having been revealed as S.H.I.E.L.D. mole in Hydra’s security, Palicki will wear her S.H.I.E.L.D. garb for the first time in next week’s episode, “A Fractured House.”
Marvel also released the concept art used in developing Mockingbird’s design, seen below.
"I looked at all of her comic appearances and really wanted to try to bring elements of the look from the comics into the costume that we're doing now for the show because I know it's important to the fans," said Ann Foley, the series’ Costume Designer who is responsible for Mockingbird’s TV look . "It's important to me to keep certain elements, but we had to change it, obviously, for practicality, because it had to fit into our world. It had to have a kind of tactical feeling to it too so that it made sense in our universe.
"She's got rivets that are in the straps across her chest, and those are there as a tribute to the buttons that go down the side of her [most recent] costume [in the comics], as well as the colors that we were using, [which] are a tribute as well. Her colors are navy blue and white with a little bit of black in there, [but] white would not have been pretty on camera so we changed it to grey. [We] still tried to maintain the original style of what was in the comic book because [with] that white panel that goes up her center and down her legs, [so] we've mirrored that in her costume but in gray instead of white."
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
