For those of you who managed to make it through the first season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and were treated to the ever-improving second season, you may have noticed now much of a bad-ass Chloe Bennet (AKA Skye) became as the story progressed. She went from a childish hacker to a full-fledged S.H.I.E.L.D. agent to a woman of massive super powers and the character is much more interested for it. Now, with the third season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. coming up in September, Skye’s character will be taking on even more changes, including a new haircut and a new name. Scroll on for the details.
The goal is to bring the character of Skye closer to the comic book character that she is based on – Quake. For that reason, Skye will now be going by the name of “Daisy”, as per the original character, Daisy Johnson. And in order to get with the program and appear closer to the original, poor Chloe had to undergo a hair transition. Check out those pics below:
When asked about altering her look and chopping off her gorgeous locks, Bennet had this to say:
“It was crazy. I cried a little bit, to be honest, and definitely had some anxiety. I should have brought tequila with me. 100 percent.”
“The comic book version of Daisy Johnson has very short, Miley Cyrus-esque hair. We wanted to stay true to the comic book character fans love; I wanted to please them but also make sure there was still some movement and length and sexiness in the hair.”
“I’m in love with it. And I think for the character, it is going to be awesome.”
These changes will help to usher in a new era of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., as Daisy will be organizing her own super team filled with super-powered individuals. They shall be known as the Secret Warriors and, together with Coulson and the rest of S.H.I.E.L.D., will likely kick some major ass. Which means that S.H.I.E.L.D. will have to up the ante when it comes to the villains they bring to the show.
What say the Nerd Readers? Is this finally the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. that we all wanted from the beginning? Do you think they might spin the Secret Warriors off into their own show and leave S.H.I.E.L.D. proper to deal with less intense threats? Will a pile of super heroes just crowd the show up and remove screen time from the characters we’ve already grown to know and love?
