Despite the it is/it isn’t happening status of the Agents of SHIELD spinoff, Marvel’s Most Wanted, ABC has now officially put it forward to go to pilot after all…

The series will focus on Bobbi Morse (Adrianne Palicki) and Lance Hunter (Nick Blood) and was officially confirmed by ABC President Paul Lee at the 2016 winter Television Critics Association press tour: “We’re absolutely doing that one. I just announced that we’re going to pilot on Marvel’s Most Wanted, which is a spinoff.”

“We love the script [and] we think it’s going to be great. We’re doing that in the next few months.”

When pressed about the future of Agents of SHIELD (i.e. will it be renewed again) and progress on the other rumoured show Damage Control (read about that one here), Lee said: “I can’t speak to what happens beyond May, but I’m feeling good about SHIELD.” he then added, “We feel very good about our Marvel franchises. We have two Marvel shows obviously being Agent Carter and obviously being SHIELD, and we have one in development, which we’re making a pilot of (Most Wanted).”

Is this confirmation that damage Control isn’t happening? Well, it’s certainly not on the immediate radar, that’s for sure.

Agents of SHIELD producers Jeff Bell and Paul Zbyszewski co-created the project for Marvel and ABC Studios and co-wrote the pilot. They’ll also be showrunners and executive-producers. Marvel’s head of television Jeph Loeb will also exec-produce.

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….
