Take a look at the future Mockingbird! EW has released the first image of Adrianne Palicki on ABC’s “Agents of SHIELD.”
Fans of the “Friday Night Lights” alum were excited by news of her casting in the Marvel drama’s second season this summer. Palicki will play Bobby Morse who, in the comics, is the SHIELD operative going by the code name Mockingbird. This hero is a trained fighter, with no superpowers — like Black Widow and Hawkeye.
When the character first appears on the show she will be Bobbi Morse, head of Hydra Security. Her arc should be interesting if it takes her from working for the enemy to famed hero Mockingbird. Palicki’s first appearance in the episode “A Hen in the Wolf House,” which will air October 21.
“Agents of SHIELD” returned this week a drastically different show. Every member of the original team has changed since the first season finale. With Hydra infiltrating SHIELD last season the organization is starting over from scratch. In the finale, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) gave the job of overseeing that to Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg). Now Coulson must go out and make new allies, one of whom could end up being Palicki’s Mockingbird.
“Agents of SHIELD” airs Tuesdays at 9pm on ABC. Palicki will first appear in the October 21 episode, “A Hen in the Wolf House.” Check out the full image of her first appearance below:
