Oh dear. After the rather disappointing end of Agent Carter last night, now it seems that Marvel’s newest show, Marvel’s Most Wanted, isn’t even going to get a crack at finding an audience as ABC pulled the plug before the show even started.

Most Wanted was a spinoff of Agents of SHIELD which would have seen Bobbi Morse and Lance Hunter (played by Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s Adrianne Palicki and Nick Blood) “on the run with no friends, no S.H.I.E.L.D. and a long list of enemies looking to claim a bounty on their heads. Able to trust no one but each other, Bobbi and Hunter form an uneasy alliance with Dominic Fortune, a rogue adventurer with a wealth of resources and even more adversaries, who agrees to protect them so long as they help him with his own agenda. While on dangerous missions that take them to every corner of the globe, the two heroes will help anyone in need, all while trying to uncover the conspiracy that put their own lives in jeopardy.”

However ABC have decided not to go ahead with the show, which is especially bad news for Palicki and Blood who were given an emotional farewell on SHIELD which was meant to lead to Most Wanted.

We’re hoping they can find their way back into that series as they were a big part of the reason that the show had improved recently.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
