As’Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ prepares to tie into ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ with their next few episodes, news continues to circulate about the rumored spinoff from executive producer Jeffrey Bell and writer Paul Zbyszewski. When that news dropped last week, details were extremely limited and all that was said was that seeds for this potential spinoff would be planted in the remaining episodes of season two of the sophomore superhero drama. But now things are becoming clearer as it seems like the stars of this new show have been revealed.
According to Deadline, Adrianne Palicki and Nick Blood are currently in negotiations to star in the upcoming ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ spinoff. The duo play fan favorite characters Barbra “Bobbi” Morse AKA Mockingbird and Lance Hunter, who both joined Director Phil Coulson’s team after the fall of S.H.I.E.L.D. in ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier.’ But since then, the former husband and wife have been at odds since Bobbi and Mack were secretly working for Edward James Olmos’ Agent Gonzalez and “the real S.H.I.E.L.D.” while Hunter was firmly in Coulson’s corner during this S.H.I.E.L.D. civil war. If the spinoff does indeed get the greenlight from ABC, it’s said that the show will have sort of a ‘Mr. & Mrs. Smith’ vibe as it follows the fallout of the second season of the first series set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Now that the stars of the show have been revealed, the question remains about when the show will air. ABC is probably sour on a show and it’s spinoff airing at the same time since they tried it and failed with ‘Once Upon A Time’ and ‘Once Upon A Time In Wonderland.’ The report speculates that the spinoff would likely bridge the gap between the fall and spring portions of ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’, similar to what ‘Agent Carter’ did earlier this year.
