Fans love a good tease especially when it comes to well-loved characters returning to the franchise. Agents of SHIELD star Chloe Bennet posted an intriguing photo on her Instagram account that may have hinted at a return of her character Daisy Johnson into the screen.
Agents of SHIELD is one of Marvel’s long-enduring series that almost tangents with the MCU. Daisy Johnson is a key character in the show, alongside Phil Coulson who also appeared in several Marvel movies.
Chloe Bennet Poses With Daisies, Hints Quake’s Return
Rumors about Bennet’s comeback for Marvel’s Phase 5 surfaced about a year ago, but the actress immediately shut down the news and said she has not spoken to Marvel about anything. Bennet, however, is enthusiastic about reprising her role as the hacker-turned-superhero Quake.
Fans’ hopes have recently reignited after Bennet posted a photo on her Instagram account that could be taken as a sweet hint on Daisy’s return. In the image, fans could see a pair of daisies sticking out from the hem of her sock. Of course, hopeful fans see this as a sign.
Daisy Johnson’s character development in Agents of SHIELD has been one of the most progressive plots in the Marvel universe. She went from an ordinary hacker to one of the strongest Inhuman heroes, hence her alias, Quake.
Agents Of SHIELD’s Quake Might Appear In Avengers: Secret Wars
It is no secret that Chloe Bennet wants to play Daisy Johnson again, and this might actually happen especially with reports that the first true crossover will happen in Secret Invasion. This is the perfect place for Johnson’s return, but the character can also appear in other franchises like Daredevil: Born Again and Echo. If not, we still have the Avengers: Secret Wars to anticipate.
Fans could only speculate if Marvel will bring the old Daisy back into the scene or create a new version. Agents of SHIELD showrunner Maurissa Tancharoen clarified on Twitter that the character might be rebooted in the MCU. “Daisy in 616 will have a new origin, however, aspects of her AoS story will be incorporated as a nod to all of the diehard fans,” Tancharoen wrote.
Kevin Feige has expressed his interest in bringing as many characters as possible in Secret Wars, including Fantastic Four and X-Men. It will be bigger and more intense than Avengers: Endgame. Feige also wants to recreate the portal scenes they did in Endgame to bring other characters across Multiverse.
At this point, fans need to keep their eyes peeled for more updates. All episodes of Agents of SHIELD are available to stream via Disney+.
