Shortly after the initial report by EW, Marvel has gone on to confirm the news. With him officially on board the project, here is what Jeph Loeb had to say about him joining the show.
Dominic Fortune carries with him a cunning and charm but also a dangerous edge that only Delroy could bring to life. We’re thrilled to have him join the show.
You can read the original report below.
During last season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., we were introduced to Bobbi Morse aka Mockingbird (Adrianne Palicki) and Lance Hunter (Nick Blood). The duo quickly became some of the best characters on the show, which is why it was not shocking when they were lined up for their own spin-off series, Marvel’s Most Wanted.
The show was recently confirmed to have been ordered to pilot, which could mean the leads taking some time away from S.H.I.E.L.D. during the remainder of the season. Now, EW is reporting that they finally have their first cast member.
They are reporting that Delroy Lindo will be joining the show as Dominic Fortune. Fortune, described as “a rogue and adventurer who craved wealth and excitement on his globe-trotting odysseys,” has a small comic history that should give the show the ability option to make alterations to him.
Marvel’s Most Wanted is currently being developed for a pilot with no scheduled release date.
