Chloe at last has a new photoshoot from this year for us all to see. The shoot was taken in and around her house but it’s still get to see new photos of Chloe just having fun and being her crazy self for the camera. I more will come soon.
TV Guide – What better way to celebrate Women’s History Month than taking a deep dive into the franchise that gave us some of the most complex leading ladies of the modern era? There really isn’t one, which is why CBS Interactive, which TV Guide is a part of, teamed up to give Marvel fans an in-depth look at women dominating the extended Marvel universe from cinema to TV to comics and more.
TV Guide checked in on the future of Marvel and talked to all the reigning teen queens of TV. From Runaways to Cloak and Dagger to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to Marvel Rising, Marvel’s next generation of heroes are tackling problems bigger than their silver screen counterparts: navigating not only their newfound powers but also wild emotional roller coaster that is being a young adult. Everyone from Chloe Bennet to Olivia Holt dished on what it really takes to be a superhero and why playing a Marvel teen means so much to them.
Chloe Bennet, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Marvel Rising
“When I was a kid, I really desperately wanted to be blonde hair, blue eyes, from California,” said Chloe Bennet, who plays Daisy (formerly known as Skye) on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Bennet, who stole hearts as the budding superhero Quake, admits that even with seven years of dominating the Marvel TV universe with multiple live-action and animated projects, she still feels like a fish out of water.
“I wish that I had a show like this when I was younger,” Bennet admitted. “To think of myself living on the south side of Chicago, being half-Chinese surrounded by all my brothers and playing pretend in the alley… To think of the fact that now I can become a superhero…” she trailed off, needing a minute to grapple with how far she’s really come. Without anyone who looked like her in pop culture, Bennet said she understands how important seeing often-ignored minorities do things they’re not “supposed” to do — like becoming a leading lady, or fighting off alien invasions — really is.
That’s why she tackles her Marvel role with the same sense of responsibility her character often takes on. “I was just trying to pay my rent,” Bennet said, describing her initial audition process. “But then it was like, ‘Oh God. Oh, I’m playing a superhero. And it’s one of the first Asian superheroes. Oh God, that’s a responsibility that I’m kind of taking that on the same way that she had to take on her powers.'” It’s a parallel journey that’s made her character such a standout in Marvel. Bennet, like Daisy, might not be ready to solely shoulder this massive responsibility of representation, but she loves going into work every day and trying to.
“That’s a superhero. When you have to step up to the plate when you’re not ready,” she said. “When you try your best and maybe don’t succeed in certain aspects, and continue to try.”
Two new photos from a photoshoot Chloe did in 2019 at the Toronto International Film Festival, I’m so happy we are still getting new photos from back then and hope more make there way online.
At last some BIG Chloe news in that she has a new pilot for the CW with The live-action “Powerpuff Girls”
Variety – The live-action “Powerpuff Girls” pilot at The CW has found its three leads, with Chloe Bennet, Dove Cameron, and Yana Perrault all joining the show.
The “Powerpuff Girls” live-action series was first announced as being in development back in August. Based on the Cartoon Network series created by Craig McCracken, the new series sees the pint-sized superheroes as disillusioned twentysomethings who resent having lost their childhood to crime fighting. Will they agree to reunite now that the world needs them more than ever?
Bennet has been cast as Blossom, Cameron has been cast as Bubbles, and Perrault has been cast as Buttercup. The pilot reunites Bennet and Camerson, though this time they will play allies instead of enemies. Both previously appeared in the ABC-Marvel series “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D,” in which Bennet’s character and Cameron’s fought against each other.
Blossom — though she was a spunky, conscientious, Little-Miss-Perfect child who holds several advanced degrees — has repressed kiddie-superhero trauma has left her feeling anxious and reclusive, and she aims to become a leader again, this time on her own terms.
Bennet is best known for her role in “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D,” on which she starred as Daisy “Skye” Johnson, a.k.a Quake, throughout the show’s seven-season run. Her other notable roles include the ABC music drama “Nashville” and the animated Dreamworks film “Abominable.”
She is repped by CAA, MGMT Entertainment, and McKuin Frankel Whitehead.
Bubbles’ sweet-girl disposition won America’s hearts as a child. She still sparkles as an adult, but her charming exterior belies an unexpected toughness and wit. She’s initially more interested inrecapturing her fame than saving the world, but she just might surprise us and herself.
Cameron broke out as the star of the Disney Channel series “Liv and Maddie,” on which she played both of the title roles. The show earned her a Daytime Emmy Award in 2018. She is also known for playing Mal in the “Descendants” franchise at Disney. She has also released a number of albums with Disney, namely the “Liv and Maddie” soundtrack as well as the soundtracks for the three “Descendants” films. Her debut EP, “Bloodshot/Waste,” was released in 2019.
She is repped by A3 Artists Agency, LBI Entertainment, and Felker Toczek.
Buttercup was the rebellious badass of The Powerpuff Girls in its heyday. More sensitive than her tough exterior suggests, Buttercup has spent her adulthood trying to shed her Powerpuff Girl identity and live an anonymous life.
Perrault was most recently seen on Broadway in the Alanis Morissette musical “Jagged Little Pill.” She was also set to join the cast of “Hamilton” on Broadway before the pandemic shutdown live theater. She is known for performing and producing her own original music. Should the pilot go to series, it would mark Perrault’s onscreen debut.
She is repped by Hudson Artists Agency.
The “Powerpuff Girls” pilot hails from writers and executive producers Heather Regnier and Diablo Cody, with Cody executive producing via Vita Vera Films. Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and David Madden will executive produce via Berlanti Productions. Erika Kennair will produce. Maggie Kiley will direct and executive produce the pilot. Warner Bros. Television will produce.
geekositymag – Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is being discussed to return to Disney+ with new episodes and its previous continuity intact. According to insiders, the ABC TV series could be resurrected with a number of its old cast brought back. This time, the show will delve deeper into the MCU.
Airing for seven seasons on ABC with 136 episodes overall, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. became one of the MCU’s most critically acclaimed TV shows after a disappointing initial half of Season One. The main issue that fans had with the series at first was the lack of MCU guest stars.
Although AOS eventually did feature Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Hayley Atwell as Agent Carter, and Jaimie Alexander as Lady Sif in subsequent episodes, the damage was already done. Many had already tuned out, unfortunately missing the thrilling Winter Soldier tie-in when Hydra infiltrated the organization.
Since that stunning game changer, AOS became among TV’s most thought-provoking science-fiction series. It leaped into parallel universes and time travel before their cinematic counterparts did. When AOS aired its series finale on August 12, 2020, it had already built a loyal following that regularly watched the show despite ABC’s destructive schedule changes.
The last episode of AOS found Chloe Bennet, otherwise known as Quake, in space, hinting at a joint mission with S.W.O.R.D., its extraterrestrial wing. On September 2, 2019, I scooped on the 3 Buck Theater YouTube channel that S.W.O.R.D. was in development on Disney+ for a show. I’m now told that it will not replace AOS.
Talks are early still, and nobody seems to know, or at least reveal, how much of the ABC cast will be retained. I’ve heard that some actors will either end up on the new AOS series or with S.W.O.R.D., with Bennet among the most likely.
Whereas AOS was limited in terms of its budget, that clearly won’t be the case here. If the show is greenlit, it will not be cheap and feature several MCU heavyweights. Just as important, they want it to pick up where the original left off.
Over the weekend I had some time so I sat down and finished redoing all the rest of season two of Agends Of Shield with new 1080p Blu-Ray caps. The last part of the episodes they were added are 2×11 – Aftershocks, 2×12 – Who You Really Are, 2×13 – One of Us, 2×14 – Love in the Time of Hydra, 2×15 – One Door Closes, 2×16 – Afterlife, 2×17 – Melinda, 2×18 – The Frenemy of My Enemy, 2×19 – The Dirty Half Dozen, 2×20 – Scars, 2×21 – S.O.S. Part 1 and 2×21 – S.O.S. Part 2. This part of the season is the start of Skye becoming Daisy finding her family and starting as Quake. You can check them all out in our gallery now and right now I am ripping the next lot of episodes so they should be up very soon as well.
I just want to do a little site update here as well, I no that main site updates has been a little slow as Chloe is not doing much right now but I have been working on the site behind the scenes. All our old updates have dead links, not done very well and just not looking great so I have been redoing all the old posts and I will be working from the end to do over the coming weeks to make it all look the same. And will be adding in new things to the site as well like videos, film bios, more info and media. So if you don’t see any main updates no I am working on thing.
