ABC newest superhero series, 'Marvel's Most Wanted,' just cast an incredible actor to play expert marksman and boxer, Dominic Fortune. 

'Marvel's Most Wanted' recently got a pilot order at ABC. If it goes to series, it will feature the espionage adventures of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Bobbi Morse/Mockingbird (Adrianne Palicki) and Lance Hunter (Nick Blood). Deadline broke the news today that actor Delroy Lindo will be joining the series as Dominic Fortune. Lindo is a formidable actor who is known for his roles in “Gone in 60 Seconds” and “Malcolm X”, and most recently “Blood and Oil” and “Believe”. 

Lindo's character – Dominic Fortune – has had a long history in Marvel comics. He's currently over 100 years old but looks much younger due to a de-aging super soldier serum. In the comics, he spent time working with Nick Fury and The Avengers in early 1960s. He then joined Mockingbird's World Counter-Terrorism Agency in the early 2000s. His character also spent time with the Black Panther in Wakanda in the early '30s, and fought along side Dum Dum Dugan in the early '40s. 

'Marvel's Most Wanted' will shoot a pilot this spring.
