Chloe Bennet became a fan favorite actress after she portrayed the character of Daisy Johnson a.k.a. Quake in the television series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Unfortunately, that show ended its run and the character has been left in limbo ever since. With Marvel deciding to take a vested interest in their series from here on out, fans have been hoping to hear any news that Quake would be making her way back into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Well, if you are one of the people that have eagerly anticipated her return, we have some very good news for you.
According to our trusted inside source – the same one that gave us the exclusive scoops on Don Cheadle appearing as War Machine in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Josh Brolin returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the Mad Titan Thanos – Chloe Bennet’s Daisy Johnson (aka Quake) is in consideration to join the cast of the upcoming Disney+ series Secret Invasion. It seems that Marvel will use that series to bridge some of the gaps left between the proper Marvel Cinematic Universe and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. This would give Quake the chance to be established among the rest of the larger Marvel ensemble as a key player in the storylines that are planned for the future.
If you are a fan of Chloe Bennet and the character of Daisy Johnson a.k.a. Quake, this has got to be relieving news. Many have assumed that Marvel was going to leave a lot of their previous television efforts behind and focus solely on their own Marvel Cinematic Universe properties, Thankfully, this news is further confirmation that they want to see what worked with fans so they can find smart and exciting ways to reintegrate those characters and actors into their Phase 4 plans. It is a clever move that keeps what worked about previous projects while leaving the future open for original riffs with the characters and their actors.
Chloe Bennet certainly is not the first Marvel actor we have heard this kind of news about. Similar reports surround both Charlie Cox and Krysten Ritter in regards to them returning to the characters of Matt Murdock a.k.a. Daredevil and Jessica Jones respectively. It seems clear that the powers-that-be over at Marvel are well-aware when it comes to which actors fans have a vested interest in seeing come back in new projects. Instead of rocking the boat and recasting them (or abandoning them entirely), it looks like Marvel knows when not to let a good thing go to waste.
It will be fascinating to see what kind of role Chloe Bennet’s Quake will play in Secret Invasion. It could be possible that the series will act as another way to rectify any character or continuity issues while also introducing some new stories to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. You can bet that fans will be on board for the show once they find out that Daisy Johnson will be a central figure in the series. We can’t wait to see what her return brings to the table.
