Thanks to our friends over at www.aosbr.com for sending us this better version of the sneak peek.
Post Mortem 2: Teasing Marvel's Most Wanted.
Thanks to Ivan for the heads up.
Do you see them ever popping back up on S.H.I.E.L.D. again sometime in the future, maybe for a crossover between the shows? Or the S.H.I.E.L.D. team visiting them?
Let’s get the pilot picked up. I would be really happy if we can do that. Whether characters can crossover, fans always love it when you can do that kind of thing. Flash and Supergirl are doing it not only across shows, but across networks. That’s fun when that can happen, but let’s get the show picked up first.
Most Wanted has been compared to Mr. and Mrs. Smith. How do you think it compares to other spy films or TV shows we’ve seen before?
It’s a fair assessment. I’ve heard it described as Mr. and Mrs. Smith in the Marvel Universe. Though our characters aren’t assassins, there is an adult relationship that’s complicated by a larger world. They can argue, banter, and bicker, but they’re going to back each other against the larger problems. There’s a fun dynamic between them. These two banter really well together; I think we saw that on S.H.I.E.L.D. They’re good with the action, they’re good with the fun, so we’re going to try to take advantage of all those things. Paul Zbyszewski, who wrote this with me, Billy Gierhart, who directed it, Nick and Adrianne, and everyone involved have really contributed to and are hoping to make this a unique and singular show in the Marvel Universe, because that’s more interesting than cloning something and trying to make Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Dubuque. But if you take that idea, I will come after you. [Laughs]
When did you first hear this was how the duo were leaving the series?
BLOOD: It was only just before, really, wasn’t it?
PALICKI: You knew more than me. I was literally on set for the episode before, and we were like hearing little murmurs and gossip of what was going to happen possibly, maybe down the line. We were trying to put it together ourselves like detectives. It’s all very top secret.
BLOOD: I remember I knew bits and pieces, and you asked me or something. You said something about it, and I went, “Oh yeah, blah blah blah, this is what I’ve been told is happening,” and you were like, “Why have you not told me?!” I was just like, “I thought you knew! I thought I would be the last to know, so I just assumed you knew.” You start to hear, sometimes when there’s something big coming up, little murmurings from people. I tricked the first A.D. into telling me. I probably shouldn’t say this. [Laughs]
How did you feel about their S.H.I.E.L.D. send-off? Did you feel it was fitting? Were you surprised it happened so soon?
PALICKI: We were in the know as far as the fact that it was coming up. It was one of those situations where it was really well done. You never know whether they’re going to try to kill us off or it’s going to be this really negative thing. It’s such a chivalrous exit that we got to be the heroes and take a bullet for the team, in a sense. It was humbling, but it was beautifully written.
What’s it like getting to work with Delroy?
BLOOD: He’s a lovely dude, very interesting guy. He’s actually from just around the corner from where I live in London. He lives near, so we talk loads about football — proper football. He’s a great dude.
PALICKI: We have the football argument a lot. [Laughs] He’s not only just a really sweet human being and incredibly professional, he adds a gravitas to this character, a very interesting charm to Dominic Fortune.
BLOOD: You could tell straight away on set that he’s going to nail it.
