Agents of SHIELD is a show that has developed a cult-like following through the years, and Chloe Bennet’s Daisy Johnson is at the center of that fandom. We previously reported that Daisy Johnson aka Quake will be returning to the MCU, and it got Agents of SHIELD fans very excited.
Bennet was slated to be portraying the role of Bubbles in the new Power Puff Girls project for The CW, however, Variety reported that the Agents of SHIELD actress would be leaving her stating “scheduling conflicts”. As this happened right around the time many Marvel projects were in production, the rumor mill of where Bennett may end up reprising her role as Quake in the MCU began to run rampant.
With fans debating whether Marvel Television characters should be canon to the movies, it gave me the idea to ask the question, where do we think Daisy Johnson will appear first in the MCU?
1. Secret Invasion
As The Illuminerdi reported that Secret Invasion was in the beginning of production during Bennet’s “scheduling conflicts”, it stands to reason that there is some likelihood she could appear in Secret Invasion. While this is of course speculation, the stories would add up. Nick Fury is set to be the main protagonist in the upcoming series, and he of course has ties to both SHIELD as the former director, as well as now SWORD. It would make sense for Daisy Johnson to pop back up in a SHIELD–related story, especially since she has so much experience dealing with alien races in the past both in live-action and in the comics.
2. Ms. Marvel
Although it’s still unclear when we will see Ms. Marvel on Disney+, we know we won’t have to wait too long before seeing Kamala Khan make her very anticipated MCU debut. If Marvel decides to lean into Kamala being an Inhuman, we could potentially see a storyline where our known and loved Inhuman butt-kicker Quake, comes in to save the day if Kamala is being hunted. This would be a very fun duo to see on-screen and would set up multiple opportunities to see her again in the future.
3. The Marvels
Shortly after we’re expecting Ms. Marvel to launch, fans are looking forward to getting Kamala Khan fighting side-by-side Carol Danvers and Monica Rambeau in 2022 with The Marvels. The second movie in the Captain Marvel franchise, it would make a lot of sense for Daisy to join a space adventure alongside these heroes. If we don’t see her join Ms. Marvel in her Disney+ series, maybe we will get to see her team up with her fellow Inhuman in 2022 when The Marvels hits the big screen.
With the first trailer for Hawkeye now out and only a month away from this project’s debut, Daisy appearing in Hawkeye seems like one of the more unlikely options. Hawkeye also is rumored to have Vincent D’Onofrio reprising his role as Wilson Fisk. Adding too many big characters outside of Hawkeye’s expected arc could be risky. However, with Hawkeye’s ties to SHIELD and Kate’s ties to the Young Avengers, there are many links that Quake could be weaved into.
5. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
Where better for Marvel to bring in a plethora of characters from outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe‘s sacred timeline, than in a movie about the multiverse. Doctor Strange 2 is expected to be jam-packed with tons of characters from the MCU, with Elizabeth Olsen set to co-star as the Scarlett Witch. While very few people have any idea what to expect from this film, we’re expecting to be shown the deep crevices of the Marvel Multiverse, diving into the events that Doctor Strange, Spider-Man, the Scarlett Witch, Loki, and Sylvie have all caused to unfold. If this is the case, maybe we see Daisy Johnson arrive headlining a group of SHIELD agents, ready to join the MCU.
