Former “Friday Night Lights” actress Adrianne Palicki is set to star in a new Marvel series on ABC.
The alphabet network has given a pilot order for “Marvel’s Most Wanted,” which will give two standout characters from “Agents of SHIELD” their own series.
Palicki would star as her current SHIELD character, Bobbi Morse (AKA Mockingbird), a double agent whose loyalties are reserved for her own causes — and whose fierceness has earned her the admiring nickname “Demonic Hell-Beast.” The other “SHIELD” character to join her is Lace Hunter (played by Nick Blood), Bobbi’s ex-husband.
Unfortunately for Palicki fans, ABC isn’t fast-tracking the series. Shooting isn’t expected to start until at least early 2016.
