One of the upcoming bouts of Disney + MCU shows is coming out Secret invasion, an adaptation of the comic book storyline of the same name. The show is a crossover event where new and old MCU faces appear in a conflict between Earth’s heroes and the shape-shifting Skrulls who are trying to take over the planet. Emilia Clarke and Olivia Colman will join the cast, alongside a character Marvel fans may already know.
According to an online source, Marvel is in the process of casting a “young woman of Chinese ethnicity, aged 20-25” for the role of Daisy Johnson, aka Quake. A performance by Quake would make sense, given that she had appeared in the comic book version of Secret Invasion. The thing is, Quake has already appeared in the MCU. The main protagonist of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. was a seemingly new character named Skye (Chloe Bennet). Just to show that she’s in fact Daisy Johnson. So why wouldn’t Bennet continue to play the character in future Marvel projects?
This new rumor comes courtesy of 4chan. To say it’s not exactly the most reliable source would be a huge understatement. Nonetheless, Marvel rearranging Quake may be just the latest uncertainty about the MCU shows that came out before Disney +. The current rumor has it that all pre-WandaVision TV shows are written out by having them take place in a different reality from the first.
Indeed, the current canon status of shows like Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, The defenders, and The better is a bit insecure. Rumors of reboots are circulating on the internet, including reports that Charlie Cox is again playing Matt Murdock Spider-Man: No Way Home. Assuming he is, it remains unclear if he will play the same Matt Murdock as the previous one Daredevil show or a version from another part of the multiverse.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. differs from the Marvel Netflix shows or even Hulu’s Runaways or Cloak and dagger. It is linked to the movies to the greatest extent. Characters from the movies such as Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg), Marie Hill (Cobie Smulders) and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) appeared on the show. The Helicarrier with which Fury appears at the end of the day Avengers: Age of Ultron appears to be from Coulson during season 2. All in all, it looks like ignore or erase Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D of continuity should be the hardest to reconcile.
When asked about the future of one of these earlier shows, Kevin Feige played it reluctantly, essentially going ‘never say never’. Again, Quake’s recast is still just speculation, as is Quake’s role in setting up a Jimmy Woo-led Agents of Atlas in the MCU. So for now, all a Marvel viewer has to do is wait and see.
