Agents Of SHIELD Spinoff Not Moving Forward
Following the news that ABC has renewed Agents Of SHIELD as well as Agent Carter, it's now being said the planned SHIELD spinoff is not moving forward.
Deadline reports Marvel put the brakes on the project, which was set to star Adriane Palicki as Barbara Morse and Nick Blood as Lance Hunter.
While it's stated Marvel wouldn't comment, a reason given for halting the project is that there may have been some backlash to the idea of taking some of the strongest characters away from the main SHIELD series.
The article also notes the spinoff received a luke-warm reception amongst fans.
It's noted the planned ABC and Marvel John Ridley series is still said to be in development.
