For seven seasons of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. that for some unfortunate reason barely had any impact whatsoever on the MCU, Chloe Bennet starred as Daisy Johnson, who got increasingly more awesome as the seasons went by and her powers strengthened. While that show's stellar finale may have been the last time TV fans see Quake in live-action, Bennet will soon take on another powered-up role as part of The CW's curiosity-stoking Powerpuff Girls adaptation. And it looks like the actress is already getting into the right mindset for the role, or at least the right hair-set.
Chloe Bennet took to Instagram to show off her new reddish-orange-ish hair, which is almost definitely related to her future in the role of Blossom in Powerpuff Girls, which will also co-star Dove Cameron and Yana Perrault. Check it out below.
First off, let's all acknowledge that Chloe Bennet's caption in the post above is 100% fire, and it even outshines the hair reveal. The actress' ability to bring another female Asian superhero to the small screen is definitely worthy of a "fuck yeah" attitude, and she's no doubt going to be amazing in the role when it all comes together. The Powerpuff Girls might not be the most obvious place to celebrate inclusion in such a way, but we love to see it regardless.
To get back to the hair, though, Chloe Bennet thankfully didn't go too extreme or ridiculous with her new hair color, which is a subtle step in the red direction away from the dark blonde locks she sported previously. Granted, this might not be the finalized color for what she ends up bringing to The Powerpuff Girls, but even if that's the case, I could still appreciate this as a transitional shade. With the hair color situation now having been addressed, the big question now, of course, is whether or not Bennet's Blossom will rock Blossom's signature giant red bow.
Marvel fans have wondered for months now whether or not Chloe Bennet would be making an eventual return to the MCU through one of the many Disney+ TV shows that are being set up for the next few years, giving Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. another chance to crossover into the bigger comic book universe. (Even the Darkhold looked different when it showed up on WandaVision, which S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Ghost Rider portrayer Gabriel Luna had a fun reaction to.) She didn't have any good news on that front when she last spoke about it, but it does look like S.H.I.E.L.D. will be part of the Hawkeye TV show in some way, so there's always a chance.
At least, there's a better chance of Chloe Bennet returning to the role of Quake than there is of Bennet's IG post below having anything to do with her Powerpuff Girls performance. (Unless The CW is going in a really adult direction with this show.)
We don't yet know when The Powerpuff Girls will make its debut on The CW, which isn't surprising since it hasn't even started filming yet. But take comfort in knowing you can celebrate Chloe Bennet's awesomeness every day from now until then, so get to it.
