Agents of SHIELD star Chloe Bennet is very interested in the idea of appearing in an all-female MCU movie, should the opportunity arise.
Agents of SHIELD star Chloe Bennet would love to be in an all-female MCU movie. For the past seven years, Bennet has played Skye/Daisy Johnson/Quake on the Marvel television series, which was the first TV show created within the MCU. Fans have watched her character transition from wide-eyed newbie to seasoned superhero, and now they’ll watch her journey come to an end with the final season. Agents of SHIELD season 7 began just last week, so there’s still a ways to go before the actual end. However, Bennet promises it will be a satisfying conclusion.
As the MCU enters Phase 4, it is trying to stretch its wings in terms of representation, whether it be for people of color, LGBTQ characters, or women. In terms of what is currently scheduled, Phase 4 has two female-led films planned (Black Widow, Captain Marvel 2), as well as three Disney+ shows (WandaVision, She-Hulk, and Ms. Marvel). Beyond that, Marvel’s plans aren’t clear, though some are still hoping for an all-female team-up movie after hearing Brie Larson, Tessa Thompson, and others pitched the idea to Marvel boss Kevin Feige.

Since Bennet’s time on Agents of SHIELD is coming to an end, many have wondered what the future holds for Quake. During an interview with Playboy, Bennet was asked if she would be willing to appear in a potential all-female MCU movie. “If they would have me, I would love to be part of that,” Bennet said. She then went on to say:
She’s an Avenger in certain comic books, so I would absolutely love that. With the Marvel universe you can never say never. Look at Clark Gregg: He has died probably 800 million times as Coulson and comes back to life. I’ll always have room in my heart for playing Daisy. I’d be very excited if that opportunity came to me.
As Bennet said, Quake is an Avenger, and Agents of SHIELD has consistently shown just how powerful she is. At one point, the show even had her positioned as a destroyer of worlds. It would make perfect sense to include her in an MCU movie further down the line, especially if Agents of SHIELD reconnects with the MCU in its final season. Quake could fit in really well among the remaining Avengers, and Bennet is clearly interested in the prospect.
As of right now, Marvel hasn’t indicated whether any members of SHIELD will continue to exist in the MCU once the show ends. Rumors suggested Quake could appear in a Disney+ show, but Bennet unfortunately squashed them. Of course, that doesn’t mean it won’t happen; it just isn’t in the works right now. It might be important to actually see where Quake and the others end up in Agents of SHIELD‘s last episode first before looking ahead. If she’s still around by the end, then why shouldn’t she join up with the big leagues in the future? For now, everything is just speculation, but Bennet seems ready for anything.
