Palicki Is Marvel’s Songbird

Adrianne Palicki Mockingbird Comic - H 2014

Bird Of Prey

According to The Holltwood Reporter, Adrianne Palicki (Friday Night Lights, G.I. Joe: Retaliation) will be joining ABC’s Agents of SHIELD as Bobbi Morse. A character that comic book fans know to be the alter ego of Mockingbird. Palicki is slated to appear in the fifth episode of next season, and there is a possibility that she could return for more episodes after making her debut.

The possibility of Mockingbird joining the cast was first teased in July at Comic-Con when Patton Oswalt, who plays Billy Koenig and Sam Koenig,  confirmed that Life Model Decoys exist in the SHIELD universe and suggested that Morse could appear in season two.

Palicki joins a growing roster of guest stars for Agents of SHIELD‘s secondseason.  Kyle MacLachlan is set to appear as Skye’s (Chloe Bennet) father; Lucy Lawless will appear as SHIELD veteran Isabelle Hartly; Reed Diamond will be Hydra villain Daniel Whitehall (aka Kraken); Nick Blood will be a mercenary that Coulson reaches out to for help; Henry Simmons will be agent Alphonso “Mac” Mackenzie; and Simon Kassianides will appear as Bakshi.

The actress has some experience with comic book productions.She was tapped to play Wonder Woman in a series that was being created by David E. Kelley  for NBC. However, that series was dumped before the pilot was completed. And she played Nadia in the Aquaman pilot for TheWB that never went to series. She also played Lady J in the G.I. Joe: Retaliation movie, and she will reprise the role for  G.I. Joe 3.

Agents of SHIELD returns Sept. 23 at 9 p.m. on ABC.

Marvel unveiled their upcoming toy lines at the 2014 Toy Fair. Marvel looks to have their TV and movie properties well represented with action figures for the Avengers Assemble cartoon, Guardians of the Galaxy movie, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, although it looks like  the Cap and Spidey waves will have characters that won’t be in the movies, and the 3.25″ Marvel Universe line will continue.

There will also be some role-playing masks so that you can be Starlord or Rocket Raccoon. I’m looking forward to Halloween. I call Rocket Raccoon.

Toby Jones, who played Arnim Zola in Captain America: The First Avenger, confirmed in an interview with HeyUGuys.co.uk that he would return for the upcoming sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Comic book fans know Arnim Zola as a genetic engineer for Hitler, who transferred his into a robot body. The comic book version of Zola has a small computer sensor for a head and a large screen in his chest which his face is projected on. First Avenger made reference to the comic book version of Zola when Jones briefly peers behind a large magnifying glass.
