ABC Actually Wants Marvel’s Most Wanted (AKA The Pilot is Shooting Soon, Guys!!!)
Plus, Agent Carter's chances are stronger than ever?!
Want to see Marvel’s Most Wanted like right now? Well, you may be in luck.
During a panel at the 2016 TCA Winter Press Tour on Saturday afternoon, ABC Entertainment Group president Paul Lee revealed some upcoming plans for Marvel’s Most Wanted, the previous announced Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff series focusing on Adrianne Palicki’s Bobbi Morse and Nick Blood’s Lance Hunter.
“We’re absolutely doing that [pilot],” Lee told the crowd of TV critics, which included The Mary Sue. “We think it’s going to be great. We’re shooting it over the next few months.”
Now, it’s not news that Marvel’s Most Wanted is happening. But this statement marks the first time we’re hearing that the pilot is actually going into production. It means that if Lee and ABC like the look of the pilot, we could see the series in the next year. In other words, between this, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter, we could have three Marvel shows on ABC’s line-up come January 2017!
Sadly, Lee didn’t have many other updates to share about Marvel’s Most Wanted. When pressed for more details during a press scrum at TCA, he remained pretty mum, only sharing that Bobbi and Nick will, obviously, be the stars of the pilot and the possible future series. And he just kept saying that the script he’s seen is “really good.” (That’s a good sign, right!?)
Oh, and P.S. on an related note, he knows Peggy Carter’s worth too, noting that Season 2 of Agent Carter is “going to be really strong.”
