ABC has reportedly ordered a pilot for an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. companion starring Mockingbird.
The series, called Marvel’s Most Wanted, would follow Adrianne Palicki’s Mockingbird and Nick Blood’s Lance Hunter in a dramatic action series. According to Variety, ABC does not know when the series would premiere, or how Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. would set “Marvel’s Most Wanted” for launch.
What is known, however, is that S.H.I.E.L.D. producers Jeff Bell and Paul Zbyszewski will showrun and executive produce the series, along with co-writing the pilot. Marvel’s head of Television, Jeph Loeb, would also executive produce.
Variety claims that the series would not be a spinoff in the strictest sense, but rather a series focused solely on Mockingbird and Lance Hunter's adventures.
Rumors rose earlier this year that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was interested in a spinoff series, but they were quickly silenced. It seems that the project if back on track however, with a clear direction in mind.
