We’ve all been super excited to hear that Adrianne Palicki (‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation‘, ‘Legion’) will be portraying Mockingbird in the upcoming season of Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘ and now have the bonus news that she is in talks to bring the character to the big screen in an Avengers film as well!
But wait, in her introduction in the series she plays the head of Hydra Security in “A Hen in the Wolf House” so what does that mean for her character? Well to clarify, the actress has stated that “Bobbi Morse is another bad ass character. She was been working with S.H.I.E.L.D. for a bit…She gets along with the team very well.”
With that description and the episode title, one can only assume that she has infiltrated Hydra for S.H.I.E.L.D. Only, does S.H.I.E.L.D. know that? Has she been in contact with Coulson or did she see an opportunity and has been running with it, just waiting for a moment to rejoin her brothers and sisters who are fighting the good fight.
When asked about it, one of the reasons Palicki initially said yes to the role was the potential of a television and film crossover potential:
“Absolutely – that was one of the things that was discussed when I was coming on for the part, and you know, we’ll see what happens. It’s such a nice world that we live in that crossover can happen so often now which in the past it never really did so, to see these worlds come together on the small screen and the big screen is really cool.”
With the character she is based on having been Hawkeye‘s wife at one point, this would seem to be a good place for her to end up.
Are you looking forward to Palicki’s appearance in the upcoming season of Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’? Do you think she’ll be one of the key players to cross between both the television shows and films? Share your thoughts below true believers!
