The cast of Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. continues to grow as the McU-set show moves closer to its second season.
A familiar name to comic book fans, who had previously been hinted in a video at San Diego Comic-Con, Bobbi Morse is a spy with exceptional fighting skills, who has teamed up with S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Avengers many times in comics history. She’s been romantically involved with Hawkeye in print, too.

During Comic-Con 2014 last month, ABC presented a special video teasing Season 2 of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., where Patton Oswalt's Agent Koenig revealed that Barbara "Bobbi" Morse, a.k.a. Mockingbird, will be popping up this season. Today, Marvel confirmed that Adrianne Palicki has been cast as Mockingbird, although her affiliation to Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his team were not revealed.
Take a look at the official press release below.
The Executive Producers of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. have sent a Morse code to say they've found their Mockingbird!
Adrianne Palicki will appear as Bobbi Morse, a.k.a. Mockingbird, in the second season of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. -- but whether she'll play friend or foe to Coulson and his team, we can't say. Known for her work in Friday Night Lights and G.I. Joe Retaliation, Palicki most recently appeared in several episodes of About a Boy.
Palicki joins »
THR is reporting that Friday Night Lights actress Adrianne Palicki has joined the second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as fan-favorite Marvel character, Avenger, and future wife of Hawkeye, Mockingbird.
Mockingbird is the alter-ego of super spy Bobbi Morse, who will first appear in the fifth episode of the upcoming season, debuting “perhaps not as an ally to Coulson and his team.”
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. marks Palicki’s third superhero television series. She infamously played Wonder Woman in the failed NBC pilot from David E. Kelley in 2011, and played the character Nadia in The WB’s Aquaman pilot in 2006.
Palicki is just the latest addition to the series, which has been picking up quite a few guest stars over the past few weeks including Xena: Warrior Princess and Battlestar Galactica alum Lucy Lawless as S.H.I.E.L.D. veteran Isabel Hartly, Reed Diamond (Dollhouse) as Hydra baddie Daniel Whitehall a. »

Mockingbird is described as a super-spy who will make her first appearance in the fifth episode of “Shield’s” second season — but she may not be an ally to the newly promoted Director Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his team.
It’s not Palicki’s first superhero role — the “Friday Night Lights” alumna starred as the titular heroine in NBC’s ill-fated “Wonder Woman” pilot, and appeared in The CW’s scuttled “Aquaman” pilot in 2006. She reunited with “Fnl” showrunner Jason Katims last season for a recurring role on NBC’s “About A Boy,” which she will reprise in season two.

The character will appear in the fifth episode of the second season with the potential to return. The report says that "the episode will find her popping in perhaps not as an ally to Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his team."
The inclusion of Mockingbird was first teased at Comic-Con in July by Patton Oswalt, who plays Billy Koenig and Sam Koenig. He confirmed that Life Model Decoys exist in the S.H.I.E.L.D. universe, and also suggested that Morse's character could appear in season two.
Barbara Morse was a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent whose assignments made her an ally of the jungle lord Ka-Zar. She subsequently used the costumed identity of the Huntress and later Mockingbird to »

After the incredibly disappointing first season of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 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. »

Self proclaimed comic book fan Adrianne Palicki has joined the cast of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as Bobbi Morse. The character was confirmed as being part of the second season of the ABC series during this year's San Diego Comic-Con, and she will appear in the fifth episode with "the potential to return" according to The Hollywood Reporter. The site goes on to mention that, "the episode will find her popping in perhaps not as an ally to Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his team." This isn't Palicki's first comic book role of course as she played Wonder Woman in NBC's David E. Kelley pilot. With any luck, this appearance Will lead to a return as Mockingbird, although it could be that the show is introducing the character here with an eye to further develop her in a future Marvel Studios movie. That's all speculation for now of course so we'll have »
ABC's Agents of Shield is bringing in another character from the comics. Friday Night Lights favorite and comic book fan Adrianne Palicki has been tapped to guest-star as Marvel superspy Bobbi Morse, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Best known to comics fans as Mockingbird, Palicki's character 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.

ABC and Marvel Studios have announced that Adrianne Palicki will portray Barbara "Bobbi" Morse, a.k.a. Mockingbird, in Season 2 of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." In the Marvel comics, Mockingbird is a lethal S.H.I.E.L.D. agent with close ties to Clint Barton/Hawkeye (played by Jeremy Renner in the Marvel Cinematic Universe). Mockingbird has also been a part of the Avengers, the West Coast Avengers, the New Avengers and the Secret Avengers. Palicki will reportedly play the role in Episode 5 of the second season, with the potential to become a recurring character. It's very possible that Mockingbird will not be an immediate ally to Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his team. At Comic-Con International in July, Patton Oswalt -- who plays Billy and Sam Koenig in the show -- teased that Mockingbird »
This new ad for Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. was spotted at the Barham and Cahuenga intersection near Hollywood. Apparently it's very similar to (or perhaps even exactly like) the alien equation that Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) was seen carving into a wall in the final moments of season 1. It's very unlikely we won't get something else on this soon, but if you happen to speak extra terrestrial and fancy taking a crack at the code, feel free! The second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. kicks off on Sept. 23 at 9 p.m. on ABC. »
Admittedly, I gave up on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. four episodes in so have little to no clue about what went down towards the end of season 1, but apparently something popped up to make viewers think that a new element of the Marvel Universe could be joining the show. In fact, someone shot a video of the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 2 set and caught a glimpse of a certain something that could prove the rumors true. Hit the jump to check out the video for yourself. Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is making its way back to ABC for season two on Tuesday, September 23rd at 9pm and stars Clark Gregg, Chloe Bennet, Brett Dalton, Ming-Na Wen, Iain De Caestecker and Elizabeth Henstridge. Warning! There are plot spoilers in this article. The video comes from The Project Work Bench (via Cbm) and features some narration that highlights: “For almost »

Simmons is set to play the role of Alphonso "Mack" Mackenzie, a 30-something mechanic who aligns himself with Coulson's Shield outfit. The character of Mackenzie is lifted from the Nick Fury Vs. S.H.I.E.L.D. #3 comic book and will be making his live-action debut.

It is a very exciting time if you are a fan of the superhero genre in both movies and television. Marvel’s universe has grown more than anyone could have ever predicted when Iron Man came out, but Agents of Shield definitely stumbled a bit before finding its footing as an essential part of the shared universe. Anchored by Clark Gregg’s Agent Coulson, the ragtag team on AoS has begun earning the love and respect of fans everywhere.
DC has yet to really get their shared universe off the ground, but their representation on television has never been better. Stephen Amell and company and made Arrow into a legitimate success and the upcoming Flash series looks very promising from the previews. All in all, it’s a great time to be a masked crusader.
Superheroes have been mainstays in both film and television for several decades, but »

Does Clark Gregg know more than he's letting on? Almost certainly, but what precisely that might be is a little harder to guess. Speaking to us at San Diego Comic-Con last week, Gregg discussed one of the aspects of the way the Marvel Universe works that he really enjoys, "They're doing something new, which is, what's happening on the TV show crosses over into the movies. I wouldn't be surprised if you saw something happen in 'Agent Carter' that connected with 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'" He ended that statement with a look of feigned surprise, a look which almost undoubtedly indicated that a crossover of some sort has been in the works. But, just what sort of crossover was unclear. The first season of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." saw Lady Sif from "Thor: The Dark World" appear in an episode. It then saw the entire storyline »

I think everyone has decided to agree that Comic-Con was a little bit disappointing this year, and I am jumping on that bandwagon. Of all the disappointing disappointments, the Marvel Television panel was the disappointingest. Last year the panel was called Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., this year it was titled "Marvel Television Presentation," which meant I was hoping that there would be casting announcements for any of the Defenders, or maybe a sneak peek at some early Daredevil footage. The random people sitting near me in Ballroom 20 shared my high hopes, which were cruelly dashed by Jeph Loeb (Marvel Television President) and his lanyards.
Look, it’s not like Loeb was eating babies on the dais, it’s just that last year’s surprise screening of the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot set the bar higher than a blooper reel, which is what they showed. Nothing wrong with that, I just wanted some Marvel Razzle Dazzle. »

Out this Friday, Joss Whedon: The Biography delves into the life of the filmmaker as told by author Amy Pascale, with a foreword by Nathan Fillion. In it, fans will get to peer into the making of Marvel's The Avengers. And one of the cooler things included is an email from star of the movie Tom Hiddleston, who plays the evil brother of Thor, Loki.
Joss, I am so excited I can hardly speak.
The first time I read it I grabbed at it like Charlie Bucket snatching for a golden ticket somewhere behind the chocolate in the wrapper of a Wonka Bar. I didn't know where to start. Like a classic actor I jumped in looking for Loki on every page, jumping back and forth, »
