Update: TV Line has just confirmed the castings of both Oded Fehr And Fernanda Andrade and have even provided some new information regarding their roles on the show.
TVLine has learned that Oded Fehr has boarded Marvel’s Most Wanted as “a
well-known character from the Marvel comics who will prove a force to
be reckoned with” for former S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Bobbi Morse and Lance
Hunter (played by Adrianne Palicki and Nick Blood).
Additionally, Fernanda Andrade (Red Widow) has been cast as Christina
Santos, a tough-as-nails woman of mystery who is also the niece of
Dominic Fortune (played by Delroy Lindo). Fortune and Santos work
side-by-side appearing to help Bobbi and Hunter while also pursuing
their own agenda. Word of the castings first appeared on SpoilerTV.
With TV Line having confirmed these new additions, it’s more than likely Marvel will do so as well sometime soon.
You can read the original, un-edited report below.
Last night’s episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. ultimately served as a back door pilot for the upcoming Marvel’s Most Wanted, and while the show hasn’t been confirmed to receive a series pick-up just yet, only a pilot order, it’s beginning to seem like a full series order isn’t too far off. The folks over at Spoiler TV were able to obtain the first tentative logo for the potential series, as well as news of two more cast members, one of which is sure to excite fans as he was someone fans hoped to see take on the role of Stephen Strange in Doctor Strange.
Here’s the rest of the report from Spoiler TV:
Oded Fehr has joined the cast of ABC’s Marvel Most Wanted pilot, SpoilerTV has learned. He joins Delroy Lindo, whose casting was announced earlier. The details of his character have not been revealed by Marvel and ABC. Additionally, actress Fernanda Andrade has also joined the pilot in an undisclosed role.
Marvel’s Most Wanted follows Bobbi Morse (a.k.a. Mockingbird) and Lance Hunter are two ex-spies and ex-spouses who are on the run with no friends, no S.H.I.E.L.D. and a long list of enemies looking to claim a bounty on their heads. Able to trust no one but each other, Bobbi and Hunter form an uneasy alliance with Dominic Fortune, a rogue adventurer with a wealth of resources and even more adversaries, who agrees to protect them so long as they help him with his own agenda. While on dangerous missions that take them to every corner of the globe these two heroes will help anyone in need, all while trying to uncover the conspiracy that put their own lives in jeopardy.
Now, while no other outlet has yet to confirm this news, Spoiler TV does tend to get the jump on casting information from time to time, so it’s more than likely this is true. Plus, Fehr actually has a past working relationship with ABC, and much like the CW, ABC does like to bring actors back for various roles. Same goes for Andrade, who worked on Red Widow for ABC, a show that Jessica Jones showrunner Melissa Rosenberg served as showrunner on.
