Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD’s showrunners are preparing to say goodbye to two of their ensemble of characters. With the news that ABC has ordered a pilot for Marvel’s Most Wanted, Maurissa Tancharoen and Jed Whedon could be sending off Bobbi Morse (Adrianne Palicki) and Lance Hunter (Nick Blood) if the pilot gets ordered to series.
“Logistically it does mean they’re going to be leaving to make that,” Whedon told IGN at ABC’s Television Critics Association winter press tour part. “They’re a part of our show. We definitely think they are capable of carrying an entire other show. That being said, it’s sort of bittersweet. We’re very excited about the new show.”
Tacharoen continued, “It’s very bittersweet because we have a bunch of females on the show who kick ass. It was so nice to have Adrianne be one of them, and then also just when it comes to the humor, just having a moment of levity, Hunter was there to have those one-liners. … That was something we could always bet on.”
She noted that just because Morse and Hunter could be getting their own show doesn’t mean they’ll never return to Agents of SHIELD. “We will miss them, but that doesn’t mean they’re gone forever because, as everything in the Marvel universe, it’s all one universe,” she said.
Whedon added, “They’ll have to step away for a moment, and we’re very proud of that moment.”
HIELD producers Jeff Bell and Paul Zbyszewski co-created Marvel’s Most Wanted and co-wrote its pilot, and will also serve as showrunners and executive producers if it gets picked up to series. Morse and Hunter’s storyline in Agents of SHIELD: Season 3, which Bell and Zbyszewski are both working on, has offered some hints as to how the two characters could spin off into their own series. Whedon opened up about how SHIELD can be used as a launching board for Most Wanted.
“We’re pretending that there’s no such thing as a pilot, that it’s only characters who live in a world where there’s superheroes. We just know at some point they’re going to have to go somewhere else,” he said. “We have a lot of characters and we’re always introducing new characters, so while they’re going to be missed, we’re certainly not going to try to replace them in any way.”

The proposed Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff is back on. ABC has given a pilot order to Marvel’s Most Wanted, a drama project starring Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. standouts Adrianne Palicki and Nick Blood and revolving around their respective characters Barbara “Bobbi” Morse, aka Mockingbird, and Lance Hunter.
The drama had been developed quietly last season by S.H.I.E.L.D. executive producer Jeffrey Bell and co-executive producer Paul Zbyszewski. ABC put the breaks on the project in early May, just before the upfronts.
I hear the drama has since been redeveloped with a new direction for the two characters that all parties are excited about. It is unclear whether the project will be considered a S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff or not but I hear it will film a standalone pilot, much like the CW did with the Arrow offshoot The Flash. I hear that will likely not happen right away, and the new pilot, first reported by Variety, may shoot during the regular pilot season in early 2016.
S.H.I.E.L.D. fans had been divided by the idea for a Mockingbird-Lance spinoff, and there had been some backlash to the idea of taking some of the strongest new characters on S.H.I.E.L.D. away from the mothership series.
Marvel’s Most Wanted is looking to join ABC/Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D., which is returning for a third season, and Agent Carter, which again will bridged S.H.I.E.L.D.’s half-seasons with its second installment.
ABC and Marvel also are secretly working on a potential series with John Ridley.
I have added photos of Adrianne to the gallery from San Diego’s Comic Con! Apologies for the lack of updates everyone, I’ve been incredibly busy with work the last month and a half and it’s left me very little time to do anything else.
