Daisy Johnson is really coming alive in the new season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Now that it’s been revealed that Skye is actually the Marvel superhero otherwise known as Quake, actress Chloe Bennet got a drastic new haircut to match her comic book counterpart — though she didn’t go so far as getting a pixie cut.
The new season of the ABC super series will feature characters inspired by the Secret Warriors comic series, of which Daisy Johnson plays a large role. The new direction for the series was hinted to in the season finale as Skye and Coulson (Clark Gregg) plotted assembling a team of super humans to deal with the new threats awaiting them.
But not everyone will be happy about Skye stepping up with this new team. “Some people will be excited and some people will be a little intimidated or threatened by that,” executive producer Jeffrey Bell told EW following the finale. “Any time a person grows or steps out of the role that they’re perceived to be a part of, it’s a problem. What happens when the student reaches the level of master or teacher? There’s a lot of good fodder for us next season with that.”
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns Tuesday. Sept. 29 at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
