Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Chloe Bennet Responds To Rumors That She’s Returning To The MCU

With the Marvel Cinematic Universe now expanding its reach within the TV realm, it would appear that just about anything is possible. WandaVision alone is clear evidence of that notion. But even though Marvel Studios has now taken the reins on the brand’s small-screen content, there are plenty (including myself) who would love to see the return of characters from Marvel Television’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. One of the characters fans would really like to see more of is Chloe Bennet’s Daisy “Quake” Johnson, and it was recently rumored that she’d be returning for a new MCU show. Now, the actress has responded to the claims.

An Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fan recently shared a report claiming that Chloe Bennet had lined up a new Marvel show. The Twitter user tweeted at Bennet, asking if the news was true, but her answer is sure to be disappointing for many. Check it out below:

It would seem that Chloe Bennet won’t be returning to the world of Marvel, at least not right now. Marvel Studios is currently focusing on further developing established movie characters and introducing new ones as opposed to bringing in familiar faces from other TV properties. So it would appear that re-introducing Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. characters into the franchise isn’t a priority for the studio at the moment.

Despite this, the character of Quake has still been getting a lot of attention since Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. wrapped up its seven-season run last summer. With the high number of shows Marvel is releasing to Disney+, fans are hoping the heroine gets another shot. The passion of the fans has been so strong that one even went as far as to create a custom trailer for a Quake TV series, and it’s honestly pretty impressive.

Chloe Bennet’s most recent response to the rumors only reinforces her desire to reprise her fan-favorite role. When she previously discussed the matter, she enthusiastically said she “definitely would” love to play Daisy Johnson again. Although she was mostly satisfied with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., she has admitted to having somewhat “mixed emotions” about it. So maybe she’s looking to add a bit more to Quake’s story.

Even if Marvel Studios doesn’t have any plans for any of S.H.I.E.L.D. 's characters at this moment, the idea of seeing them in the MCU proper isn’t impossible. I mean those Daredevil/Spider-Man 3 rumors alone are enough to give fans hope.

One can only hope Chloe Bennet does indeed get the opportunity to play Quake again. Daisy Johnson proved to be an incredibly complex character, and Bennet played her beautifully. And of course, seeing her use her seismic abilities was also cool.

All seven seasons of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are available to stream on Netflix.
