The third season finale of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. jumped ahead six months, with (spoiler alert) the S.H.I.E.L.D. team pursuing a runaway Daisy (Chloe Bennet) who can apparently fly. Prior to the time jump Hive (Brett Dalton) met his demise, the second time Dalton’s character has died on the show. Lincoln (Luke Mitchell) also sacrificed himself for the greater good.
Season four not only has to deal with that aftermath, but also promises to introduce Ghost Rider with Gabriel Luna as Robbie Reyes. We spoke with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. showrunners Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen at a Marvel Television cocktail party for the Television Critics Association. Read More »

Marvel has previously had a presence with the Television Critics Association by presenting panels of their ABC and Netflix series among the networks’ other shows. This year, Marvel held their own TCA event with a host of their talent and showrunners. Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel Television, gave a speech to say thank you and “welcome to Marvel” to all of his creatives. Afterward, he spoke with reporters about a few projects not represented that night.
Marvel’s Most Wanted was designed to be a spin-off of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC. Since ABC passed, would Loeb shop it around to other networks? “I never say never, but we designed that show to do a very specific thing,” Loeb said. “The network decided that that thing was not something that they wanted to do. I love everybody that’s involved with it. It’s an extraordinary piece of writing and execution and performances, but for whatever reason it didn’t work for the network. I can’t comment on what they do.”
Read on for Loeb’s comments on Cloak and Dagger, Legion, and Fox Untitled Project (formerly Hellfire Club).

ABC has been wanting to expand their Marvel slate. Marvel Television developed a pilot for Marvel’s Most Wanted, a spinoff featuring two characters from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Bobbi Morse (Adrianne Palicki) and Lance Hunter (Nick Blood) were even written out of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to set the stage for their own show. However, ABC ultimately decided not to order Marvel’s Most Wanted to series. Should it fail to find another home, could Palicki and Blood return to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?
“Interesting question, one that Marvel’s probably best positioned to answer,” ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said during the panel. “The characters were sort of disavowed in the show as they call it, but I never underestimate Marvel’s ability to bring people back.”
Dungey also touched upon the decision to cancel Agent Carter, teased other Marvel ABC shows in development, and discussed the Castle cancellation. Read More »

After finishing up its second season earlier this year, fans have been wondering if Agent Carter would return for a third season, especially since lead actress Hayley Atwell had landed another lead role in the courtroom drama Conviction, also on ABC. Reports said that the production schedule for each shows would have allowed her to do both, however, a new update indicates that Agent Carter may be retired after all.
In addition, there may be more bad news for fans hoping to see Marvel’s TV roster expand on network television as Marvel’s Most Wanted doesn’t sound like it’s guaranteed to get a series order as was once thought.

Sure, the MCU already has Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter, Daredevil, and Jessica Jones, with Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Defenders still to come. But if you’re looking for yet another Marvel series to sink your teeth into, you’re in luck — ABC is currently working on Marvel’s Most Wanted, which will follow the further adventures of Bobbi Morse (Adrianne Palicki) and Lance Hunter (Nick Blood).
The network gave the S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff an official pilot order last year, and over the past couple of months we’ve seen the project gradually start to come together, with last night’s episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. setting up the premise of the new series. Today, we’ve got a couple of casting updates, a first look at the new logo, and many interesting comments from executive producer Jeff Bell about the tone and concept of Marvel’s Most Wanted.

First ABC decided they wanted an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff, and then they decided they didn’t, and then they felt like they weren’t sure, and then, way back in August, they finally gave Marvel’s Most Wanted an official pilot order. Now some more details have been revealed about the new series featuring Bobbi Morse (Adrianne Palicki) and Nick Blood (Lance Hunter), and it suggests some interesting developments up ahead for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Read the first official Marvel’s Most Wanted synopsis below. Read More »
A couple months ago there was an effort to develop an Agents of SHIELD spin-off series starring SHIELD characters Bobbi Morse (aka Mockingbird) and Lance Hunter, played by Adrianne Palicki and Nick Hunter, respectively.
That spin-off effort died, or was at least wounded, as there was still talk of it having a future. The big issue seemed to be frugality on the part of the network brass, who wanted to get a little more blood out of the characters on SHIELD. Now the two characters are indeed getting their own spin-off pilot. This incarnation is called Marvel’s Most Wanted, and it will feature the two characters on post-SHIELD adventures. Read More »
