At this year’s Comic Con panel for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Patton Oswalt was featured in a video where he teased the debut of the Marvel hero Mockingbird for season two of the series. Now, ABC has announced that Adrianne Palicki will be taking on the role. This isn’t her first dalliance with spandex. You might remember that Palicki was cast as Wonder Woman in the ill-fated series that never made it past the pilot a couple years ago.
After the incredibly disappointing first season of the series is returning with a new gameplan: guest stars, guest stars, and guest stars. Kyle MacLachlan is playing Skye’s father; Lucy Lawless is playing veteran S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Isabelle Hartley; and Reed Diamond is playing Hydra baddie Daniel Whitehall (a.k.a Kraken). THR is now reporting that Adrianne Palicki will be making an appearance this season as Bobbi Morse, a.k.a. Mockingbird. According to THR, Morse “will appear in the fifth episode of the Marvel procedural with the potential to return; the episode will find her popping in perhaps not as an ally to Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his team.” While Palicki is a likable presence, her casting and the casting of other guest stars doesn’t address the show’s larger problem like the bad writing, dull main characters, and crummy special effects. Hopefully, season two is where Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. comes into its own instead of being that TV thing Marvel does.
Hit the jump for the Comic-Con video where agents Billy Koenig and Sam Koenig (Patton Oswalt and Patton Oswalt) teased the appearance of Morse in the new season.
