Agents of S.H.I.E.LD. wasn’t a perfect sure, but you better believe I’m coming back for Season 2! And Marvel is gearing up with a ton of new characters and plots. So far, the only new character directly from the comics is Mockingbird! She’s going to be played by Adrianne Palicki, who was almost Wonder Woman in a TV show that never made it past the pilot.
The Hollywood Reporter announced the casting today.
Mockingbird, real name Bobbi Morse, is a secret agent and Avenger from the comic books. She hasn’t been around very much in recent years, but was pretty important back in the 70s and 80s, when she was Hawkeye’s wife. So this is a pretty big coup for the show. I doubt Mockingbird was ever going to make it into the movies, but she’d be pretty perfect on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
She could possibly also guest star in the Netflicks Defenders!
