The bloodbath over at ABC continues tonight with news that Marvel’s Most Wanted won’t be moving forward. The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff would’ve focused on Bobbie Morse (Adrianne Palicki) and Lance Hunter (Nick Blood) as they go on the run with “a long list of enemies looking to claim the bounty on their heads.”
The premise was solid enough, but this is a show that’s had trouble for a while now. It was originally in development last season and then put on hold. It returned this year with a semi-backdoor pilot, but now it appears as if ABC is done with it for good.
Of course, this isn’t the only bad news for Marvel fans today, as Agent Carter received the axe earlier tonight, along with several other of the network’s shows, like Castle and The Muppets. There is hope, however, as although the company is struggling on ABC, their Netflix series remain some of the best television around, and with Luke Cage gearing up for a premiere in the fall, there’s still a lot of Marvel goodness to look forward to on the small screen.
