SHIELD Star agents want to be in an all-female MCU film
Agents of SHIELD star Chloe Bennet are very interested in the idea of appearing in an all-female MCU film, if the opportunity arises.
Agents of SHIELD star Chloe Bennet would love to be in an all-female MCU film. For the past seven years, Bennet has played Skye / Daisy Johnson / Quake in the Marvel TV series, which was the first TV show created within the MCU. Fans have seen his character go from a wide-eyed beginner to a seasoned superhero, and now they will see his journey end with the last season. The SHIELD season 7 agents started last week, so there is still a long way to go before the end. However, Bennet promises that this will be a satisfactory conclusion.
As the MCU enters phase 4, it tries to spread its wings in terms of representation, whether for people of color, LGBTQ characters or women. In terms of what’s currently planned, Phase 4 includes two female-directed films (Black Widow, Captain Marvel 2), as well as three Disney + shows (WandaVision, She-Hulk and Ms. Marvel). Beyond that, Marvel’s plans are unclear, although some still hope for a female team film after hearing from Brie Larson, Tessa Thompson and others presented the idea to Marvel boss Kevin Feige.
Since the end of Bennet’s time on Agents of SHIELD, many have wondered what the future holds for Quake. In an interview with Playboy, Bennet was asked if she would be willing to appear in a potential all-female MCU film. “If they had me, I would love to be a part of them,” said Bennet. Then she added:
As Bennet said, Quake is revenge, and SHIELD agents have consistently shown how powerful it is. At one point, the show even positioned her as a destroyer of worlds. It would make perfect sense to include it in an MCU movie further, especially if Agents of SHIELD reconnects with the MCU in its final season. Quake could very well integrate among the remaining Avengers, and Bennet is clearly interested in the prospect.
For the moment, Marvel has not indicated whether SHIELD members will continue to exist in the MCU after the show is over. Rumors suggest that Quake could appear in a Disney + show, but Bennet unfortunately crushed them. Of course, this does not mean that it will not happen; it’s just not in the works right now. It might be important to see where Quake and the others end up in the last episode of Agents of SHIELD before looking ahead. If it is still there at the end, then why shouldn’t it join the big leagues in the future? For now, everything is just speculation, but Bennet seems ready for anything.
