Agent of SHIELD star Chloe Bennet says her character Daisy Johnson won’t be popping up in Marvel’s Secret Invasion series.
One of the most highly anticipated shows coming out of Marvel’s upcoming serialized slate is Secret Invasion. An adaption of the hit comic series, the Disney Plus show will see Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury and Ben Mendelsohn’s Talos sniffing out the Skrulls who have invaded planet Earth. Marvel has also assembled an all-star A-list cast to round out the series, with Emilia Clarke, Olivia Coleman, and Kingsley Ben-Adir joining in undisclosed roles.
Rumors have suggested that Agents of SHIELD fan-favorite Chloe Bennet would be reprising her role as Daisy Johnson for the Disney Plus series. Unfortunately, Bennet debunked the rumors whilst speaking to fans in a series of Instagram Stories.
“So, ooh, I have avoided kind of saying anything like this in general on social media or whatever because I thought it would maybe just kind of blow over, but it has not. I am in no way attached or involved at all or a little bit in the Secret Invasion Marvel thing. I honestly don’t even know what that is.”
“I am only coming on here to say this because it’s gotten to the point where every day, I’m getting hundreds of messages about this, and it seems to be the only thing people…I am now getting approached in person, today it was in the tampon aisle at Target, a little inappropriate. So, I figured I just would clear the air. I have no involvement in that.”
Well, that clears the air. Chloe Bennet’s announcement seems wholly sincere so we won’t entertain the idea that she’s playing coy about her involvement. While it’s disappointing that Daisy Johnson won’t be popping up in Secret Invasion, it just goes to show how many fans want to see the Agents of SHIELD characters folded into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Agent Coulson star Clark Gregg recently said that he believes the ABC series is canon to the MCU.
Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD starred Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, Henry Simmons, Natalia Cordova-Buckley and Jeff Ward. The series was co-created by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen, who also serve as executive producers along with Jeffrey Bell and Jeph Loeb. The series was produced by ABC Studios and Marvel Television for ABC.
