As far as television crossovers and the MCU are concerned, ABC’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. is about as close any series has ever gotten to appearing in the Marvel films. The series features Phil Coulson, who has been present in both the films and series, and the show was directly affected by the events of films like Captain America: The Winter Soldier. While that’s all well and good, it’s not enough for Bobbi Morse actress Adrianne Palicki, who said in a recent interview she would love to fight alongside Marvel’s biggest heroes on film:
I would LOVE to get to kick ass next to Black Widow! Bad-ass chics unite!! Waiting for the call.
Adrianne Palicki indicates during her AMA she still has that itch to appear in a hero feature, even though her chances of being Wonder Woman are long gone. The appearance would be problematic for Palicki, considering she’s no longer on Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. and currently on Fox’s recently renewed The Orville. But one would think if the call came, Seth MacFarlane would let her hop off the set temporarily to make this dream come true. The real question is would Marvel, as Bobbi Morse’s arrival over other Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D characters wouldn’t make a ton of sense.
For those that haven’t been keeping tabs on Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., Bobbi Morse and Lance Hunter were disavowed from S.H.I.E.L.D. in Season 3. Their departure was originally supposed to result in a spin-off series titled Marvel’s Most Wanted, but that never happened. Now, a year later, it seems unlikely that Marvel would pick up the phone and call up Adrianne Palicki given how long her character has been gone from the series, but anything is possible. With Disney looking into developing a Marvel series on their streaming service, perhaps one of the new Avengers films could serve as a back door pilot for Marvel’s Most Wanted?
Crazier things have happened, and it’s not as though Marvel hasn’t done something like that before. Then again, Agent Carter wasn’t exactly a runaway success for either brand, so there’s a risk in doing something like this and repeating the same mistakes all over again. Can Adrianne Palicki sway executives into thinking otherwise with her interest in being in a Marvel movie?
We can only wait and see as Avengers: Infinity War appears to be the big hope for fans to see their favorite Marvel TV heroes on the big screen. In the meantime, there’s still plenty of great shows hitting television in the remaining months of 2017, so be sure to head over to our fall premiere guide.
