Add Chloe Bennet to the long list of actors and actresses who have denied their rumored involvement in Marvel Studios’ projects over the years. Bennett took to social media, seemingly unprompted, to let her fans know that despite their deepest desires, she would not be returning to the role of Daisy Johnson, aka, Quake, in the Disney Plus streaming series Secret Invasion.
Bennet rose to fame in the role over seven seasons of ABC’s non-canonical series, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and fans have been pining to see her character cross over into the MCU. Bennet joins the ranks of actors and actresses such as Tatiana Maslany, Paul Rudd, Andrew Garfield, Charlie Cox and Allison Brie in denying their involvement in MCU projects; ironically, while fans are often willing to take most of these actors at their word despite evidence to the contrary, it seems that, in this case, fans are going to Fox Mulder route and choosing to want to believe rather than take Bennet’s word for it.
While Secret Invasion is going to go heavy on the espionage-both Olivia Colman and Emilia Clarke are playing spies and there are at least 3 other big spy roles in the series-at this point it looks Quake won’t be joining the party. Fortunately fans who want to see more of Bennet in the role can always head to Netflix to rewatch the series.
Marvel Studios Secret Invasion will start production soon and is expected to stream on Disney Plus in the Fall of 2022.
