Avengers: Endgame was a celebration of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's unprecedented ten-year journey, and while the film was largely shrouded in mystery, one thing fans knew had to be included was a final fight unlike anything that had come before it. To nobody's surprise, Endgame delivered. Many iconic moments occurred in the nearly forty minute battle sequence, and one that had fans talking for months after was when Captain Marvel led the women of Marvel against the forces of Thanos.
In a later interview with Variety, Brie Larson expressed her strong desire for an all-female Marvel team-up film, saying that after Avengers: Endgame she and many other Marvel actresses told Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige "We are in this together, we want to do this." Though the Oscar-winning actress elaborated by saying that this was by no means a confirmation of an A-Force project being developed at Marvel Studios, Marvel fans quickly became excited by the idea of an all-female Avengers film by speculating on possible dream teams of female superheroes.
Now, it appears one of Marvel's most popular television heroes wants to throw her name in the ring as well.
Agents of SHIELD just began its final season on ABC, and one of the show's leads hopes the journey doesn't end there. Actress Chloe Bennet, who plays the Inhuman Daisy/ Skye/ Quake, was asked by Playboy if she would be game to join in on the all-female superhero film that Brie Larson pitched to Feige. Bennet responded:
If they would have me, I would love to be part of that. 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.
WHAT THIS MEANS
The A-Force is gaining traction for sure. The project has yet to be confirmed by Marvel Studios, but it seems as if every actress who's played a Marvel superhero is definitely game for an A-Force film.
While Bennet's character does come from the realm of Marvel television, there are still plenty of ways to bring a character like that over to the MCU's film franchise. Avengers: Endgame did feature Howard Stark's butler Jarvis, a character from the ABC series Agent Carter, so the film studio is definitely game for acknowledging their television universes.
As fans and stars have debated the status of the hit show within the MCU's official canon, Bennet points out that the Marvel universe is full of possibilites, and "you can never say never."
With the MCU preparing to enter the Multiverse in projects such as Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, there are always opportunities for characters like Quake to join the ranks of the A-Force or even the Avengers themselves. Crazier things have certainly happened.
